I've gotten to the point where Slender games get an instant downvote.

No more creepy anime "Interactive Novels", take that to newgrounds.

What happened to the whole "Indie games are the bastion of creativity" thing?

That went out the window when people started putting anime ♥♥♥♥ in the game covers on they submissions

I'm curious. Why are people opposed to a specific genre of game even if it is "overused" as you say? If the game is well made and fun, how could we possibly not benefit from its inclusion in Steam? Some people put a lot of hard work into these games and to exclude them simply because you feel that other games of the same genre already exist is quite ludicrous.

It died when everybody just started making reskinned copies of whatever new innovative indie game was recently popular.

I would guess that the sheer volume makes it difficult to discern the good from the bad at first glance.

Speak for yourself. As long as there are good indie platformers, zombie games etc it wont hurt anybody to bring them to Steam. Also, just because it's a platformer, doesnt mean there isn't a new twist added to it, or a new interesting gameplay mechanic. There is an audience for this stuff.

We have a million "modern warfare" shooters on Steam too, yet nobody says, no, stop making them, we dont need any more of these. Nor should anyone say that imho, as long as there are people wanting to play them. Same for indie games.

More original games should have priority of course, but that doesn't mean every game has to be completely original (95% of them, indie or AAA aren't).

This.

Sadly, most indie game makers are this.

Also, no more Call of Duty copies please.

Are we talking indie copies with laughably low production value or the Big name ones that at least look nice while being nigh identical?
