Valve barely did any curation before, and now it's just going to be worse. Straight up "games" that don't run and asset flips and shovelware of all kinds. It's the wild west completely now. They have learned that they don't want to do even the modicum of curation they were doing before. So let everyone onto the platform and everything and that's the best way to maximize income with the least amount of work. I expect to see straight up malware released on Steam.
There are no standards anymore, no quality control. With hundreds of shovelware games getting released on Steam it's going to be even harder to find those diamond games without marketing budgets.
This is all to give us "player choice." When someone goes to medical school, they don't want to be taught pseudoscience like homeopathy or reiki or naturopathy. They expect to be taught things that have good arguments and evidence to back them up. They don't want "student choice" to learn pseudo medicine. Medical schools have to exercise some quality control over the subjects that they teach.
