has details on an update coming to the Steam curation system this
fall, which will hopefully make it easier to sort though the vast catalog of
games they offer. They outline what this means to players,
curators, and developers. Here's the part for players:
This system really only works if players find value from following some
Curators. So we're adding to the kinds of content that Curators are able to
create, and increasing the places within Steam where that content can be seen.
- Recommendations provided by Steam Curators can
already appear in the main featured spot on your Steam Home page as well as

that share your tastes, or offer unique information about particular kinds
of games, you can explore the 'Recommended Curators' or 'Top Curators'
lists. We're fine-tuning the 'Recommended Curators' section to more
accurately suggest Curators who recommend games like those you've been
