Op Ed

Mashable - Steam removed a school shooting game, but there's a bigger problem.
"The darker corners of Steam are flooded with content creators known as "asset flippers." These individuals build whatever they're working on using pre-made assets that have been stitched together, with little or no original work.

Popular, heavily supported game engines the software tools that are the building blocks of our video games such as Unity feature an App Store-like interface where content creators can look for shortcuts. So instead of, say, building an art asset for a gas station or an Xbox controller profile for standard first-person shooter controls, a developer can go and download somebody else's version of the same.

The creator of Active Shooter is, according to Valve, one of the more enduring asset flippers on Steam. So the game's removal, and the banning of Revived Games and ACID the developer and publisher, respectively isn't a response to toxic content, it's the removal of someone Valve has deemed a dishonest content creator."

Many certain things fall under the 'taboo' category. This subject is one of the more modern ones.

Wonder how well Ethnic Cleansing sold?
