How does steam work? Can I sell a game?

Banned
Hi,
I have left 4 dead 2 pc game. I have already installed the game and created a account however the game is no longer installed. Please can someone advise me, can I resell the game or do you need the steam account to play that game? Can the game be sold with the account?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure to be honest. I wouldn't personally as all your personal details are part of the account.

Whoops, I didnt think about that. Looks like im keeping the game

Thanks for your help.

Your Steam account allows you create a portfolio of purchased games linked to your login account. Since you purchased Left 4 Dead 2, you may download directly via Steam and install it on any PC you have now and in the future unlimited number of times. No need to look for discs or CDs get scratched etc.. You may not resell the game however, once tied to your account. You're not technically permitted to sell accounts, although many do seem to do so online but it is questionable.

I bought half life 2 on ebay, the physical copy. To play it though I had to install Steam and he gave me his Steam details. I find steam a lot easier because you don't need the physical DVD in the drive making whirring noises every time you start it up.

People do sell their accounts on fleebay but I beleive its against steams rules, I bought the orange box off ebay sold the boxed game and unused as computer unable to play the games.

We was both unaware of the rules, the soloution was the seller gave me the user name and changed their password to something random and gave me that, I've been using that account for years.

I've a account now that has a fair though games that dont get played, in the future i'm going to be creating accounts for games and sending them on to family when finished.
