After spending tons of hard-earned money on digital video games through services like Steam, you don’t even get to leave them to anyone if you pass away.
Eurogamer dug into what happens to your Steam games when you die, taking a look at the terms of service, talking to a lawyer, and even contacting Steam support. They found out that, even if you ask nicely, you can’t leave your video game collection to a friend or loved one even if it’s in your will.
That’s not cool, and Steam shouldn’t just lock away all the games that you paid good money for in the first place. But now we know.
