Comments on Steam User Reviews Disabled by Default

A thread on Reddit started by Kiu16 notes a change to user reviews on Steam disables user comments by default. Users who post reviews can choose to enable comments to subject themselves to the wisdom of the crowd, but overall there will be less discussion of user reviews. Reddit's discussion of this is passionate, and expresses general disapproval of the change. It's not clear at this point whether this relates to recent EU privacy regulations, Valve further refining the user review process, or some other reason. Thanks PCGamesN.

Good change if you ask me. I have a couple high-rated reviews and the comments on them are all nonsense really. They often focus on my "hours played" stat too, which is never accurate because I tend to use offline mode a lot. You're there to read the review, not reviews of reviews.
