ABOUT Sturgeon's Law

Steam reviews aren't participation trophies.

Sturgeon's Law. "Ninety percent of everything is crap". Derived from a quote by science fiction author Theodore Sturgeon, who once said, "Sure, 90% of science fiction is crud. That's because 90% of everything is crud."

Steam has over 100,000 games in the catalog. Is every one of these a sparkling gem? Or are 90% of them crud?

Not all games are equal. Some are much better than the rest, and many are much, much worse.

Let's sort the wheat from the chaff. Do you deserve only the best?

Many of the games are flips of exactly the same game template assets and share similar art and so on. Given Valve have chosen to ban these developers all at the same time, we can only conclude our suspicions have been correct and these are all either the same person or a small number of bad actors who've been acting together to pollute Steam for profit.

Certainly, we know that Reforged Group/Gales Corp/HotFoodGames/ImperiumGame/Garage Games are all one and the same as we've seen games move between those Steam developer accounts. It's interesting to see how far the rot spread before Valve finally ended it.

Here's to a much nicer, cleaner Steam Store for everyone!

Sturgeon's Law reviews
"Sturgeon said "90% of everything is crap!". Does this apply to Steam games too? We're going to find out if lazy shovelware padding out game bundles is close to as good as fully developed AAA blockbusters."

I have been browsing the owner of this groups hoard of reviews for a few days. He came up in a subreddit for game development because people thought he was a troll farm. Not only do I wonder what the guy does for a living, but I also wonder why he doesnt make these rapid fire reviews into a video series. He posts 3 or 4 reviews a day, and honestly he should just do a video a week going through thse same comments but for 20 some off games.

I also came here to say his lufthausers review sucks. Otherwise these are entertaining.
