Are you a fan of horror games? I'm not, but that doesn't stop me appreciating the work that goes into making people shit themselves due to a video game.

In the UK, it is now a legal obligation for publishers to refund you on digital goods if, during 30 days prior to purchasing, it's faulty or broken. This accounts for all digital goods, but is particularly important for gamers as many have purchased a digital game only for it to be in an unplayable state and have felt cheated out of their cash.
Remember that really odd pre-order program that Square Enix launched for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? Entitled "augment your pre-order", this program unlocked more pre-order bonuses the more people pre-ordered the game. Well, that's no more as Square Enix has cancelled it.
