#4 - But, that didn't help at all... The only thing I got from that…  [+] (10 new replies) 04/26/2015 on Gabe Talks Paid Mods +123

Considering Valve's roots, and all they've done for PC gaming so far (Linux support? Steam OS? Making Steam a pretty good delivery/community platform, instead of like Origin? The workshop in general? F2P games that weren't pay-to-win? The market? Paying out over 57 million dollars to content creators?) accusing them of being evil is just . . . sad, really. Didn't even give them a chance to explain before saying they were "worse than EA".

Gabe isn't stupid. He knows when there's issues, and he's trying to come up with solutions. But at the same time, any step forward is gonna have problems. People are vilifying them because the system isn't perfect upon launch, instead of pointing out fixable problems.

For the record, they've paid out over 57 million dollars to date to over 1,500 different content creators.

1) Doesn't look like you read the whole thing
2) The fact that he didn't address everything could kinda be due to the fact that he just got out of eye surgery, he was on an iPad in a coffee cafe, and that there were over 13 thousand replies in the span of a few hours.

I don't know if the article covers it but i was browsing through some of the posts he did on reddit and he did talk to nexus about the mods and that issue, i can't remember exactly what was said but i'm fairly certain he was going to fix it/do something about it.

The Google App store has minimal review proceedures, from what I can see it pretty much relies on user flags to determine if something should be taken down. Have we seen an armegeddon of stolen content? No, because when there's money involved, people tend to be really careful. And people hate being screwed over. So if something does end up being stolen, it gets downvoted, downrated, and flagged to death. I'm sure there will be one or two clever ones that manage to slip by for a while, but with a community of many thousands of people, it's only a matter of time before they get busted.

What it boils down to is people don't want to be responsible with their cash, or so I feel. They don't want to have to check if a mod is good quality or stolen. But that's how a free market works. Do your research, decide if it's worth it. There will be some bad apples, but there will also be some diamonds.

No, you're horribly mistaken. And you needn't look further than the massive pile of shit that is Steam Greenlight. You cannot trust the Steam community to properly control quality. Another example would be reviews, where any game remotely popular will have large dominance in "funny reviews", reviews that aren't reviews whatsoever. I should also point out that many of those mods are likely produced illegally. Consider how many people likely bought a professional license of Photoshop or Blender. Not many I think is pretty fair. Well, there is a fun stipulation within those EULAs that say using that unlicensed, particularly for a commercial product, is quite illegal. Not to mention the rampant copying of free mods from the Nexus by third-party people.

You cannot trust the Steam community.

So what you're saying is you gotta look into a product yourself before purchasing it?

Gee, it's almost like real life or something.

Sorry for the sarcasm, but this really annoys me. Look, you're buying a game. It's your money, do some research and see if it's worth the cash. In an era of professional reviewers, let's plays, blogs, forums, and all sorts of information tools, there's really no excuse. I don't get how people can understand that when they're buying a normal game, it's up to them to look into it and decide if it's worth the purchase, but when it's on Greenlight, somehow it's all Valve's problem.

Look, Valve has a very good reason for staying out of this (see picture). At some level, quality control can move into censorship. For example, were I in charge of quality control, Goat Simulator would have never, ever been approved. Yet it was, and it was somehow popular. Valve's approach is pretty much to make sure you aren't blatantly lying about your product, and then to let the community decide what's good by purchasing what they like. This is simple free market economics.

Are there problems? Yes, just like there are crappy products in real life. There are also successes, like Besiege. Stop blaming Valve for giving people a platform to sell their products and instead focus on weeding out poor game devs and supporting good ones.

So, in response to tazzerz's original comment, Gabe has addressed the issue. There's a DMCA copyright take-down procedure already implemented. But more importantly, Gabe's counting on the users to be responsible with their money and not pay for crap. Because if people are willing to pay for crap, it doesn't matter whether or not Steam manages to clear it all off of their servers, because it's going to be sold. If we can't trust the Steam community, it doesn't matter what steps Gabe takes, because the whole thing's pointless.
