Steam will limit achievements for fake games

Steam will limit achievements for fake games

Last couple of years on Steam there has been a battle of so-called " fake games, or products that are made quicker-better, most often with someone else's materials, and with a single purpose - to make quick earnings with different methods. Once this was "farming" of trading cards before Valve restricted trading option for the same. An active method is still selling games to increase achievement scores and thus also value of user account. But, nor this malevolence of Steam will longer exist.

Namely, Valve announced that developers will soon get stricter terms under which they can include achievements in their games. The first and most important thing will be that the games can contain up to 100 achievements. This does not apply to all games sold on Steam, but only those that fail to prove they are real games, and not so-called achievement spam. Also, to users achievements from these games will not be publicly displayed on their profile.

Steam needs to change their policy and start eliminating trash games which now take up a good 90% of the platform.

I have over 2k achievements on steam and none of those are from games like these. I do have a couple of games like these in my library but only because i got the from bundles or giveaways. I intentionally avoid playing them so that i won't get flooded with those useless achievements.

About time, but to agree with those above, just get rid of the fake games in the first place.
