Steam tagging is a disaster.

I don't know why they expected users to not troll the hell out of the tagging system.

For example, Train Simulator is apparently about lesbians.

I'm sure they expected exactly this. They'll probably give it a week for everyone to get their rocks off and then delete the silly tags, and no one will even remember.

Also, just found this gem:

"Gay Abortion"

Greatest thing I've seen on Steam thus far.

Q. Why Beta?
A. We need to get some data into the system before it will be fully optimal. That means the initial categorization of items might be a bit off until we see what kind of tags are becoming prevalent and tune the system for the best results.


Translation: "We want to get some tags in the system so when it goes live it'll be immediately useful and we can delete the stupid tags"

Right now, the worst thing about tagging is that you don't even have to own the game to tag it.

Edit: People are apparently also using tags to put spoilers in for certain games.

simplest one I've seen is Bioshock Infinite. (You'll have to click the + sign to see the extra tags since right now "WAIT A MINUTE... THAT CARD" and "Overrated" are the top tags)

EDIT: also FF7 has a spoiler right on the front page (though after this many years who hasn't had the game spoiled for them?)
