Game News: Valve Removes Fake Games!

Valve dealt another harsh blow in the ongoing Steam problem of fake games -- taking down one developer and more than 200 fake games all in one fell swoop. That's got to be some kind of record.

    Trash games is why I stopped browsing Steam. If this really fixes that, I'll probably start browsing games again, but does it really fix trash games?


    What is a trash game?


    Haven't some games that are very poor quality upon early access become really fun later? Haven't some games that are poor quality turned out to be fun on their own - distilled experiences to the specific mechanics that make something fun without all the AAA fluff?


    What's to stop someone from creating hundreds of companies to spam trash games?


    Any open delivery service is subject to the same abuse as any other open delivery service... like postal mail (junkmail) and email (spam) and forums (also spam) and journals (also also spam). For every fix, there's a way around it, and for every fix, someone legitimate ends up in the junkmail folder.


    I don't envy those who have to find ways to filter illegitimate stuff without filtering legitimate stuff.

    They could change their business name to "zonitron reflection."


    Written exactly like that. Lowercase letters and a period at the end. I'm using that for my company name now. It's already trademarked, copyrighted, and I own it 110% in all legal terms.
