It Took Less Than A Day For Users To Ruin Steam Tags

GG3 takes a look at Steam tags and sees it's already showing cracks. Every Call of Duty is "garbage?" Bioshock and Fallout are "overrated?" Those cracks could be worked out during the new program's Beta period, but it goes further than just that.

git gud or die tryin has the best gaems.

WildArmed3781d ago

It actually does have some good games!

As for this issue, i think it's fine.
There are some very interesting tags going around. Tags based on themes (nanomachines, war, post-war, etc etc).

I think this will make my game searching a bit more streamlined.

I don't think it's ruined at all, only a minority are misusing it. But it's hardly annoying. So many people are using ti right, that it already works pretty darn well.

I hope Valve doesn't change this at all. I am glad to see gamers being able to tag products based on what they actually think as oppose to some corporate message. I am so sick and tired of people trying to lessen how bad something is to gamers because they want to stay in the good graces of a company. The gaming media is suppose to be about providing information and truthful content to their consumers, not about being overly fair to a corporation.

lol I can imagine some poor 12 year old buying it thinking it's easy =P

madara0sama3781d ago

It's not ruined if it's the truth.

LAWSON723781d ago (Edited 3781d ago )

No it is an opinion and mostly trolling not the truth.

ziggurcat3781d ago

so... fez is overrated garbage? it shows up in both the "overrated", and "garbage" images.

Prime1573781d ago

The trolls probably wanted to piss off Phil fish because he's easily excitable. Much like the flappy bird guy.

WildArmed3781d ago

Lol, I still can't play the game. It doesn't get past the first level -_-

Support isn't much help either.

Valve facing £656,000,000 lawsuit over claims Steam is ripping off players

The owner of Steam has been accused of overcharging 14 million PC gamers in the UK and 'shutting out' competition in a new lawsuit.

Dan506d ago

Overcharging? Have these people never heard of sales?

just_looken6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

"Valve, the owner of Steam, is being sued for £656m over claims it is abusing its dominant market position to overcharge players.

The collective action claim has been filed with the UK’s Competition Appeal Tribunal by digital rights campaigner Vicki Shotbolt.

In the lawsuit, Shotbolt accuses Valve of ‘shutting out’ competition when it comes to buying PC games and DLC, which has led to 14m people in the UK being overcharged for PC games as a result.

The claim is seeking up to £44 compensation for every UK player who has bought a PC game or add-on content from June 5, 2018."

So they are trying to take the apple/sony/xbox approach were there is only one store without ever using a pc for gaming.

Anyone with a ounce of pc gaming knowledge knows steam did nothing when competition and the launcher war happened but now every publisher that had there own launcher with games only available on that platform are slowing coming back to steam.

This "lawsuit" should be directed to launcher's like rockstar's as they have games only available on there like the gta collection or ubisoft with xdefiant heck epic launcher exclusive games. There is no grounds in which steam has locked down content to there platform except there own games though there are disc versions of those except half life alex.

Pc players still have the best choice on game buying with multiple launcher's and site that offers keys like my fav humble bundle but on the same platform we have the worst drm along with those 3rd part launcher's that need to run in the background.

How about suing them for the game files that the customer should own?

Michiel19895d ago

yes, let's give storefronts the power to decide over properties they don't own, sounds awesome

anast5d ago

I don't understand. Your comment isn't clear.

Michiel19894d ago

I was being sarcastic, 99.9% of games sold on there are not from valve so there's not much they can do about it.

anast3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Since the customer has agreed not to own, there is nothing that can be done. If customers do not agree, then the landscape looks different.

anast3d ago

In addition, if Steam goes out of business, they have measures to ensure gamers keep their steam games. This seems to be a grey area of ownership, someone has agreed to some kind of perpetuity in the case of this event, which could a possible hole to exploit.

Steam allows 3rd party apps (which I hate) and...we all know that egs is the one that keeps buying exclusivity lol. A lot of devs and consumers rely on steam hence it's very heavy support.
