I bought hl2 2nd hand but I can't play it Tags: PC gaming Amazon Steam Video Games Last response: July 24, 2012 12:44 PM in Video Games Share Forbesicle July 24, 2012 12:06:17 PM I recently bought hl2 2nd hand off of Amazon but I need to activate it on steam. Unfortunately the serial number has all ready been used and so I cannot play it. Is there anyway I can get a new serial number or activate it without using one? If not, do I have to send the game back? Thank you More about : bought hl2 2nd hand play Hawkeye22 July 24, 2012 12:43:59 PM I'd contact steam support and see what they say about it. They may be able to sell you a new activation key. silverliquicity July 24, 2012 12:44:44 PM you could contact steam and explain your situation, although the chances of them giving you another code are slim. You may have to buy the game on steam to get a new code. other than that you might just have to send it back. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Bought HL2 - can't play!
