I've had a few users either DM me or post on the threads suggesting games for the Steam quests. I decided I'll go ahead and try to make a list of some user-suggested games to throw into the rotation as we get new Steam games added. I really want to try and make sure that I implement (when and where I can) the feedback I see from forums.
Just some notes and house-cleaning items to list:
We don't support EGS, itch.io, or other platforms. Steam only, and no "I wish..." type posts, please. We're working on the Steam quests and some exciting community opportunities that I think will make members happy. We're also actively fixing some latest bugs with Steam App IDs not lining up and some folks not getting their cookies for hours. They're logged, noted, and being looked into.
Don't suggest a game you wouldn't let a 5th grader play. Nothing lewd, nothing extremely graphic, you get it.
Suggesting a game isn't a guarantee that we'll use it. We'll check it out, check out the ratings, and go from there.
So, with that out of the way...
What kind of games are you looking to see+play in our Steam Quests?
I think it would be fun to do some multiplayer games where (via forum post?), AWA members can play with or against each other. Just as an example, Among Us with a handful of room codes in a forum post only accessible to members.
I'd also like to see the Steam quests working with ARP boosters again, and maybe get the extra points for the two games I did today, but I'm sure you'll sort that out in due time.
Whilst I agree that F2P would give most users a chance to earn, I don't see a problem with reasonably-priced games. When titles that cost £30-50 to buy pop up, it's really for those who already had them as the cost is too much for curiosity.
How about tying it into sales or offers? There are enough of those on Steam.
Or how about looking back at previous Giveaways, to see how successful the takeup has been?
PvP/PvE/Battle Royale titles appear a lot, as do platformers. How about simulators? Proper ones, not just point'n'click games with 'sim' somewhere in the title. Or driving games? 5th-graders don't just like Mario Kart or getting their parents to buy GTA V for them! BTW, FPS like Valorant have been on the list, so are we really talking 5th grade here, or one if the low-mid teens PEGI grades?
