I find the idea that everything needs to be curated as a bad.
For another you have that curation group possibly allowing what is deemed as garbage from another group onto the storefront. This in turn would annoy that group for quite some time, if not indefinitely. Valve has already pointed out that they have not only seen people being upset when one thing changes, but that other groups voice the same displeasure when things are reversed. They know there is no winning, no making everyone happy, not even their internal staff, who have previously voiced conflicts with one another.
Yeah, it's good news overall, and it's absolutely understandable why Valve has arrived at this decision. There was no way to make everyone happy. For instance, in regards to the recent erotic games situation, they had a consumer advocacy group complaining about sexually explicit games on Steam for over a year, so they finally caved in and decided to crackdown on games with sexual content, but then when they did it started another firestorm of controversy with even more people complaining about the crackdown on the erotic games. There is no way to make everyone happy, and there was even in-fighting within their own policing team about the situation. Ultimately it was easier for them to just let consumers decide what they should or shouldn't play by themselves, and that's a good thing imo.Last edited by shikamaru317 - on 06 June 2018
