So I made this video. Then a day later this happened. I don’t mean Sterling’s video in particular, I just mean yet another in a series of outcries bemoaning the quality of games on Steam and calling for tighter standards on what gets published. And it’s sometimes frustrating to pose the counter-argument on this issue – the opposition has megaphones on major game websites and the support of armies of self-righteous game players, while the side of open platforms is largely the side of developers and a few critics that want to see barriers to entry lowered. And while I wanted to respond I’ve got more important things to make videos about than rehashing these same arguments forever, so I figured a blog post would do. More after the jump.
Civilization! Script below the cut.
