After yesterday’s raging social media debates about Valve abdicating responsibility for store curation, the corporate has eliminated a bunch of video games from Steam.
Valve announced not too long ago that it wouldn’t merely take away video games some may deem offensive, as long as the content material isn’t unlawful, or “straight up trolling.”
This resulted in lots of criticising Valve for permitting sure video games onto its platform. Valve has responded by taking down some video games which clearly fall into the “straight up trolling” class.
Similarly, Active Shooter, a recreation faraway from Steam previous to the announcement, additionally suits below this “trolling” umbrella.
“We rejected Active Shooter because it was a troll, designed to do nothing but generate outrage and cause conflict through its existence,” Valve VP of selling Doug Lombardi advised VentureBeat.
“In addition, the developer had been involved in numerous misrepresentations, copyright violations, and customer abuses. There are no second chances for Active Shooter, or its developers. And to be explicit, while the developer behind it was also a troll, we’d reject Active Shooter if it had been submitted by any other developer.”
It seems like a lot of the response to Valve’s (admittedly obscure) announcement was a bit untimely.
