The what reason option on steam refund is completely inconsequential. I once refunded a game I had for almost 8 months (I bought it on sale, and just didn’t get around to playing it). I also 6 hours on the game. I selected “My Reason is not listed”. Then I wrote in box “Swiggity Swooty I want back me Booty”. The refund was approved.

Polygon has reached out to Valve for further information on Steam’s return policy, as well as the stream, and will update when we hear back.

*Update:* We've corrected one instance in this story where McKown was spelled McKowan.

To answer your opening question, you are potentially an easier target with less resources than X streamer.

I only ever paid attention to Polygon because of the McElroys, I love all the hilarious content those guys made for Polygon’s YT channel. But now they no longer work for them, and after learning about stuff like this, I don’t want anything to do with them. They are pretty much the Buzzfeed of video game journalism right now.

What a terrible thing for a company to have come out of their journalist.

I love how most of the argument against Julia is...
1) "You're lying and here's proof"
2) "It's literally an option that Steam gives me."
3) "You are terrible at writing without bias and without spelling errors... and that's your job. It's what you chose to do and you suck at it."

How to journalism 101:
1) Talk about drama, not real stuff.
2) Fabricate stuff.
3) Cite non-accurate sources.
4) Repeat.

Boy, you spent longer on making your response than polygon did on their article. Just proof that polygon has no standards.

17:40 It's like she's writing one of those overly structured essays for 8th-grade English class and needs to include another source in the form of a quotation. Like what the fuck.

Oh no, someone returned a game they didn’t enjoy!

I think the worst part is that she listed your real name, unleashing the whole sonic fan base on a personal name rather than a business name.
Also, giving to charity, well played indeed.

Gaming journalism is a joke.
Sue Polygon. You have more than enough grounds to sue for libel.

Huge respect man, I love watching stuff from larger streamers/youtubers to help me to know how to watch my own (and my friends) back. Def gonna start checking out more of your stuff!
