That's kinda where they're heading and it seems like some people are mad about it. "Valve should be curating their library"... I don't care if they sell crappy iphone knockoff games... I'm not going to buy them (or if I do, it'll be in a bundle with 10 others for $2).

That's Gabe saying that steam should NOT be a curated store...

I don't think people are mad that they are on offer so much as that they are plastering crud all over the main store pages. They need to organize their options a little better and label their games a little more clearly. Yes a 10 year old game is now on steam but it really isn't a 'new release'. They need to have indie, early access, and perhaps even original release date filters. Basically steam is getting too large and sifting through titles is beginning to take a lot more time than is reasonable.

I don't know...it doesn't bother me, but then again I don't go to the steam store page to "shop". I know what I want and I put it in the search box (or I google it) and find the direct page for the item there. It doesn't matter to me if it's on the front page, some page buried in the back, or whatever... as long as there's a store page somewhere that I can click on to buy it.

The only time I ever even give the steam store page a second glance is during a major sale, but that's only because the deals are changing rapidly.

Maybe by the time the summer sale rolls around they'll have some kind of new store page hierarchy or whatever.

None? Unless its not available anywhere. I'd prefer games to stay away completely from tying themselves to any one program.

If games want to be somewhere, I'd rather they just appear on GOG. I have no special needs for games to be on Steam.

This.

Though I'd also like to see Steam adopt the DRM free angle of GOG on old/indie titles.

Quite a few of them already ARE...Like the original GTA is free. If you have that on steam you can run it without having to run steam first.

Bastion doesn't use any DRM, you can run THAT without running steam.

Just because it's on steam does not mean it's got DRM.

I don't know how much of that is correct, but if you've already got some of those games it wouldn't take you long to check for yourself if it's correct.

Pretty much every game is available on Steam/GOG/Origin/Uplay except for older games, so that's what my list mostly consists of.

Silent Hill 2/3/4, with proper bugfixes applied
All classic LucasArts games such as Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle, and Full Throttle (etc.)
Nocturne
Classic Resident Evils, maybe with updated graphics like square did with FF7/8.
Bad Mojo
American McGee's Alice (the original)
Scrapland
Pretty much all ScummVM supported games, some of these cost ridiculous prices of $100+ due to rarity.

There's also a few games they removed from Steam which I would like to see returned eventually like Gears of War, Homefront, and Blur.
