Then again, this is a Kyle Orland article so I shouldn't be surprised this is the position he's taking. Bashing Steam is the latest trend in the games press.
The issue is the internet is filled with clickbait in order to drive ad revenue, once you see these articles enough times they know that spouting bs and being an idiot drives people to click and say "aren't these people morons".
So in some greater sense people are falling for these pseudo-clickbait traps.
Plenty of good games sell even in early access. Deep rock galactic and Dead cells.
The reality is most games suck and are low quality and even the good ones have such low content as to be barely a game. Since modern gamers are basically idiots who will buy anything. What good games there are from indies are usually short and many can't even be called full games.
