So, Steam Sale right now. Everyone is in a buying fenzy, Steam is so cool, and etc and etc...
But I have to admit I'm not that much into it.
Steam has too many games. There's a GamaSutra article stating how more games were released on Steam during the first 20 weeks of 2014 than during the entirety of 2013 . And those releases have absolutely no kind of quality control or curation; in fact, Steam has made available for sale unfinished and bugged games, under the "Early Access" system. Sometimes his has led to players complaining about the low quality of the games, usually being told by fellow games to shut up because they knew what they were getting themselves into; a few times, the issue is so glaring that Steam actually takes action and removes the game from sale (War Z is among the best known example, however it's far from being the only one), but not before players paid for and were frustrated by some products.
