Steam tagging is a disaster.

I noticed someone has been going through and tagging every single game with "Not Half Life 3" and I think that is hilarious.

Gone Home is terrible has bad tags:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/232430/

These tags are accurate for that joke "game."


I agree. I was happy to see the negative reviews too. I hope those current tags aren't removed.

There is also a guy b****ing about the tags:

I read his blog for entertainment. Suck it bro!


How can people be so dense?

Have they never heard the word beta before?

Do they not understand this can, and will be tweaked by Valve?


Ah, the classic "ITZ A BEYTUH1!! 1!" defense.

You do realize that defense is fully applicable in this situation, right?

Carelessness isn't an excuse for a beta. Did Steam REALLY think this would go over well?

You seem confused. What exactly is your issue, that Steam is trying to add tags or that the feature is a beta?

I think the steam tags are useful. Even promotes more business. Once the useful tags set in, they can remove the crap from the system.

Why not have a system that allows you to find games similar to your specific interests? This is essentially one of the only ways to implement it. Irrelevant tags were most likely going to be used for games either way since this is influenced by the users, even if they can't be customized.

Though it doesn't help to have non-owners be able to put tags.

It's Valve thinking video gamers can be trusted to be mature.

Like I said, you're confused. If that's your issue than why are you crying about it being a beta?

I think you're the one that's confused. I wasn't crying about it being a beta. I was criticizing someone using the excuse of it being a beta as a defense of this just being generally a bad idea to let users tag the games themselves.
