One of the main problems I have with it, is the mindset or precedence it sets, and who's in position to dominate it. It may sound good on the surface, but when you compare it to reality and what really happens in these types of situations, you realize it isn't all warm and fuzzy. It's ALL about the money. Money for the big guys who can dominate and control it. It has NOTHING to do with helping the modders, that is just their 'hook' to get people to support the idea.DigitalDuck wrote:If the exposure you're giving me means that will give me an increase in profits, I'll take it.

Nobody's forcing anyone to sell their games/mods on Steam. The fact that they choose to do so suggests that maybe Steam's cut is worth it.
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
