After you die, your Steam games will be stuck in legal limbo

Hi, everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
I just bumped into this and thought of sharing here. Something I've never thought about, then again, I'm not gamer.
An excerpt:
The issue of digital game inheritability gained renewed attention this week as a ResetEra poster quoted a Steam support response asking about transferring Steam account ownership via a last will and testament. "Unfortunately, Steam accounts and games are non-transferable" the response reads. "Steam Support can't provide someone else with access to the account or merge its contents with another account. I regret to inform you that your Steam account cannot be transferred via a will."

Hahah, steam is violating basic human rights which is the right for last will.
Sue them to the the international court of justice in den Haag.

Just one more reason why I'll continue not to buy games. (unless they're DRM free like GOG games)
