I was delighted to discover Euro Truck Simulator 2 had a demo, which convinced me to buy it!
As for those games that don't have demos... I'm not paying full price to try your game and maybe like it... You have to earn my money from me, the same way I have to earn it from the people who employ me. I get the money after my work is deemed acceptable, not before!
There is an exception for games that run under the $6 or $7 mark... Because that's such a small amount of money anyway. (Also why I hate going to the movies these days. $17 for a 2D showing of a 2.5 hour movie? No, ta.)
Sometimes I download games from less-than-developer-desired locations. Sometimes after I do I go buy the game in question, because it was worth the money. Sometimes I don't, because it wasn't. If I had a demo, I wouldn't have to resort to such options. (And when I say demo I don't mean .5% of the game that's time-restricted, you bastards!)
Speaking of, I had a funny moment last night... my hybrid acquisition of games consisting of torrents and purchases led me to 'acquire' all 20gb of Total War: Shogun 2 before I realized I had purchased in on Steam ages ago.
That said, can I have a game that mixes Assassin's Creed 4's gameplay with Star Trek please?
