SteamGifts - is it any good?
« on August 30th, 2019, 10:52 AM »
Just wondering what is your opinion about the site.

This is my review:
SG has become a bad site. It used to be good though, when people actually gave to people.
Right now moderators protect BOTs & "auto-join groups", so that getting game(s) is not possible to normal people. Site is getting overrun by leeches which take 1.000+ games, even though they only gave not more than 10 games. I would avoid it all cost.
& if you think gifting your games in giveaways, you're better of throwing your games in trash than gifting them on SG.
Not to mention that freedom of speech on forum is identical as in North Korea!

Do you think it's harsh?

I don't know whether it's harsh or not. I never use it. Iirc I got a total of 4 or 5 free cheap games on it in years of use. Meh.

What has been on my to do list for years though, is a giveaway system for Lestrade's. Not random crap though... But for it to work if need a bigger user base. Meh.

SG is fine, I have won a bunch of games there, they have some annoying rules as you have pointed out though.

nazamout - may be AFK

Yes, I think it's harsh. And I think you're brushing an exaggerated portrait of the site, because you are bitter. I've seen your most recent comments about SG being pro-bots and al. Not sure you've seen my replies.

Not gonna elaborate more, I don't think it's worth it. Clearly, your opinion about SG is set into stone so there's no real point in trying to discuss. I'm not saying the site is perfect, but it's certainly not as bad as you're trying to make it look like.

Been involved for almost 5 years. More than 400 GA's created, 11 games won. (no complain here, I have a huge backlog already), over 5k comments and I've never been suspended.  If truly SG was functioning like an authoritarian regime à la North Korea, like you seem to imply... man... I would have been banned long ago.

In all honesty, I don't get users like you. If you dislike the site so much, just stop using it. Period.  Also... going out of your way to leave negative review on Trustpilot and the likes is... childish, at best. *rolls eyes*
Ohai! Already have a huge backlog and not a real collector so I guess we could say I'm quite selective. I try to send fair offers & expect people to do the same.

I am not a reseller/retrader.
