Moving away from their usefulness to consumers, I think if they are included in the “disappointing” Steam Web API they would be an excellent resource for developers, so we can build great steam apps.
Well, it’s really not just the friends’ lists that give Steam the upper hand, the community is massive, and you can get help and discuss anything.
The game hubs idea was a huge success for Steam. Before game hubs, discussions were confined to Steam Forums, but now you can discuss games, comment on screenshots, rate and subscribe to community creations on Steam Workshop, get help from others through guides and share your game art and so much more. Steam truly is a social experience, and I don’t think Microsoft or Sony can emulate that success.
This is great news! Looks likes we’ll be Riftin’ in Riften©
I’m pretty sure anyone can remake the game and sell it, now that the original is gone. It’s not a complex or quality made app, just make sure you have giant hit boxes for those pipes.
