This is exactly the opposite direction i wanted Steam to go.. quality over quantity should be there way of thinking.

I'd rather not be told what I can/cannot buy.

 

I know you're likely to have an excuse for that reasoning, but there is none in this universe that will make me complacent with it. You simply never tell me what I can/cannot buy.

No one is telling you anything. I rather Quality in the shops than a flooded menu of $5 trashy indie games filling in every screen when I go game hunting. That's just my opinion. Its one reason why Nintendo do so well in there history because of there QC.

I agree with this myself I do not think any content should be blocked. If you do not like the content of something do not buy it.

However early access really needs to die and they need to get rid of shovelware. Finding decent games on Steam is an absolute chore as the vast majority are shovelware or in alpha stages.



Because of this philosophy my days of impulse buying on steam is gone.



 

Seems like good. Let the gamers decide if they want to buy or not.

On their platform?
You can't go into a physical store and expect to buy any product you want. You can only buy products that the store endorses/carries. While that's not always a case of quality over quantity, if they don't want to sell a product because they think it will cause customer dissatisfaction, whether it's due to poor quality leading to complaints or something else, it's perfectly normal if they refrain from doing so.

It's funny how you're contradicting youself in the same post. Either everything is allowed or not, but not both things.

And, by the way, most of us are against this new policy because it will mean a lot more shovelware on the store.

Steam is a private company and has the philosophy that they do not want to tell you what you can/cannot buy. 

What is quality to someone, will be garbage to another. it is a subjective issue, not an objective one. 



                                       

I'm kind of surprised at the negative reaction by many in this thread. My interpretation of what they said is that they're going to stop wasting their time moderating things that might offend some snowflakes, such as erotic content in niche visual novels, and will instead refocus the moderating team toward actual good moderation. They said they would remove illegal games, which should cover games that use stolen assets, and they also said they will remove games that are "straight up trolling", which would seem to cover shovelware games by definition. *shrugs*

Jim Sterling is going to have a ball with this one. I don't care too much personally, I only go on Steam to buy games I already know about. I never browser through the huge amounts of shit in their store, I go straight to what I want.

And here it is :)

 



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

Actually I am not at all. If it were all or nothing then explain consoles? Consoles wade through the games that want to be on their platform and (mostly) get rid of shovelware. 

 

Content that some may find offensive SHOULD NOT be blocked

Content that is not finished SHOULD be blocked.
