Steam is still completely broken, and it’s ruining PC Gaming

Valve’s once respected ‘hands-off’ approach to the management of the largest storefront in the world for PC Games has become nothing more than a symbol of laziness and negligence.

The once exclusive, prestigious club of games that had been chosen for syndication on the incredibly convenient and reliable service which lets you download your games anywhere has become swamped year over year without trash games, unfinished games, literally copy and pasted tutorials pretending to be games (Valve called them ‘Fake Games’ but didn’t get rid of any), and even game listings that are missing files of any kind (wow).

Steam became a joke in recent years for allowing terrible, half-baked games like The Slaughtering GroundsDay One: Garry’s Incident,  and Guise of the Wolf; all of which were so bad that their creators attempted to censor and sue critics like Jim Sterling and TotalBiscuit who dared to give players a warning not to buy them. Pathetically, one of these three games has not even been removed from Steam to this day even though each had its own mega-scandal during the 2013-2014 time period.

During the initial days of Steam’s downfall, a program called Steam Greenlight was introduced as a way for indie game developers to get their titles on the platform. The reason for this action was that Valve became too negligent to continue actually curating the games that deserved to be on their service after a massive flood of wanna-be indie devs began chasing after the success witnessed in 2010-2012 by indie titles on Steam such as Super Meat Boy, The Binding of Isaac, Castle Crashers, and so on.

These titles remind us of a better time in which PC Gaming was represented well by cream of the crop indie games that made it the cutting edge of gameplay design and the envy of console owners. Steam made PC seem like a great place for gamers to play more games with less focus on graphics and generic styles but instead more focus on fun factor, gameplay quality, and innovation.
