It already costs 100$ to get a game on Greenlight, so people are willing to pay that and I think that's a good number to prevent spamming. 5K is definitely too high. I personally put a game on Steam and didn't make anything close to 5K. Thing is, I would have paid the 5K if I had to, but it would have turned out that I would have lost a sh*tload of money and that that money was instead in Valve's pockets, which would make me feel like I was swindled... So, seems like this new project of theirs is about raising the price. If they're going to do that, I suggest they stay below 500$. I think they should just leave it at 100$. I really don't think there's a problem with too many or too low quality games on Steam. You can get refunds, there's great reviews and you can filter things easily.
I'm fine in general with that, but I'm not sure I can filter as well as I would like to.
Also the dumb recommended for you shit on top. If I don't act, I see the same one's for a looong period of time. I have to tag "Not Interested" and I will on some, but not all I want to permanently hide, so I just keep getting those over and over, it needs to at least recommend a completely new list every 24 hours. I really want the new stuff cycling up top first though like it was. Not happy with the move to their choice of recommend. I play a space game, one, and next thing you know I have a list of 10 space games from all genre's showing up as recommended, because I like one space game!
Here is what I have right now:
Galaxy on Fire 2
Galatic Junk League
Everquest 2 (LOL)
Sniper Elite 4
Resident Evil 7
COD Black Ops 3
I get the majority of that because of Empyrion. RE7 is all I would consider from that list and I bet that is going out to everyone no matter likes or dislikes.
Now what I care about... scroll to bottom, Popular New Releases... Now most is shit, but at least that is something new and I'll tag Wishlist, Not Interested or nothing. 6 out of 10 Not Interested, hopefully never to be seen again, unless I do a very specific search.
Then over to Top Sellers tab... Which have 8 on my Wishlist waiting for a sale.
What I want is now at the bottom of a multi-page scroll. Why? Used to be at top and made sense to be at top... new stuff.This comment was edited on Feb 11, 2017, 13:39.
