Here is how to improve a tool for us.

There are games that drag out the preliminary parts of games before even getting to the actual play.
Increase the time you can play a game before the "refund to wallet" time limit is up.

(And, maybe, for backloggers, the time you can have it before 1st run.)

Anyway, I am very happy with Steam, it's the Amazon of gaming.

Just return greenlight, but mark them as playable alpha/beta or something. They way it will keep the "release store" clean instead of full of buggy messes. :)

Now that sounds mighty fine and noble... on paper. By applying the 'anything goes' policy you avoid censorship, but there's a fundamentally different and more important problem that goes along with that. I'm talking about the store being flooded by low quality content, which makes it hard for small indie devs to successfully reach out to customers, who have to wade through a bog of trash content to find the good stuff. I can use the 'not interested' tab, sure, but the algorithm may stop showing me certain types of games, including the ones I might actually like, just because they belong to the same categories as the ones I rejected. It's not an optimal system. The curators help a bit, but some verification bfore a game gets a price tag would go a long way. If with every purchase we make, Steam is happy to take 30% of our money, than some quality assurance should go along with it. Otherwise, what are we even paying you for?

Some games on steam are traps Microsoft Flight Simulator X is a trap due to a required screen resolution.
