Valve essentially betrayed a bunch of indie developers to Morality In Media, a group of lobbyists and liars. Fun!

this is not morals, at all, this is absolute bullshit, going after people's personal lives and trying to control what they look at is infringement of human rights, pulling off censorship bullshit all of a sudden only because " why the fuck not " is unfair at best for both developers and consumers.

If I may make a second comment after organizing my thoughts after a lengthy and heated conversation with friends, I think that this is more out of misguidance, not malice. Valve is making a pathetic attempt to get back into regulating their.... library. So, since it is the cheapest solution, they've chosen to observe the community and act based on what they deem to be shit. Unfortunately, assholes like MIM or whatever title they assign to their vile group, are cashing in on this opportunity. The smaller the group is the louder they become to compensate, and so like a frog filled with parasites that makes a louder mating call in the hope of attracting more hosts to infect, they have caught Valve's attention. Listening to the loudest group seems to be a good idea in theory, but on the internet its terrible in practice. Valve has not yet learned this. The only way to teach them this? Well, what talks louder than a parasitic frog called MIM? Money. Valve does something and then suddenly they lose a lot of users? They'll realize what they just did was wrong and will lose them money, and they'll scramble to retract it and make everything better for the users who actually play games. They'll learn that shitheads like MIM who abuse the "think of the children" mentality aren't the ones that they should appease. Think of it as potty-training a dog that's been in a shelter for so long its forgotten that its supposed to do its business outside.
Get the fuck off my hard drive you daft cunts. Anything with sex appeal is unacceptable and yet asset flips, gambling sites, and vile garbage frolic in your database. I will have no more of this bullshit.

This could get some backlash. Quite a few of these risque games do get coverage and have good followings. Actually found out about some from Jesse Cox's channel. But I guess Steam/Valve would rather risk a major walkout/boycott than accept that people have different tastes in entertainment, letting people like what they like so long as they aren't hurting anyone. Of course, that would make sense, and we can't have that now, can we.
Azure Tiger (1 month ago)
I also see a lot of people making an argument I make a lot, which is that it's okay to have grotesque violence be readily available, but any form of nudity and sexuality and your in censor territory. And I have no problem with violent games, as I play quite a few myself. I'm just calling out the hypocrisy of the right wing moralizers. Don't give me grief either, I grew up in an eighties moral panic household, so I need to get it out of my system how effed in the head these people are sometimes.

Media has no mortality people have morality. If I think a game is immoral..... I won't play it. I have zero interest in deciding what content you consume. Let me enjoy what I like and you freely consume what you like....tenticles and all This group is gross, and I do consider myself a morally conservative Christian. They are such a bad represntation
Mekarus (1 month ago)
Wish you'd done a bit more research on this one, Jim. There's more to it than Morality in Media targeting Steam, and Steam taking the easy road; these are laws being passed through U.S. Congress, called FOSTA-SESTA. It's a foot in the door to censorship, claiming to target "sex trafficking" despite a number of anti-sex-trafficking groups, including the U.S. Department of Justice and sex trafficking survivor's groups, saying it will in fact just drive criminals underground, where they're harder to find. It changes culpability to make any sexual crimes that happen on a website the liability of the website's owners-- in other words, if someone on a craigslist personal sold a BJ somewhere prostitution was illegal, craigslist would be in trouble for it, rather than it being a matter of whoever decided to sell a BJ. Steam's U.S.-based, so they fall under these laws. My example of craigslist does, too, which is why they've closed the personal ads section. There have also been some user reports of other companies like Google refusing to host or deleting sex-work related data without warning, including porn videos and written documents. I have no doubt that Steam is following the trend of private companies scrambling to hide from this law, instead of fighting it.

Games can have sexuality/nudity without being pornographic. But these "visual novels" really are just soft-core pornography for repressed weeaboos. With some exceptions, obviously. That said, Valve should *never* listen to "media watchdog groups" like this, and for this reason I think they should all be put back. That's a door they should not have opened.
GodOfOrphans (1 month ago)
Personally I never liked Steam even before the downward spiral began but this practice is unacceptable and I vote for an organized boycott of both Valve and paypal in response to this, companies need to be taught that censorship doesn't sell and will not be tolerated, otherwise it will never stop and will get progressively worse.

Some of those visual novels do have 18+ versions out there, Steam just has the family friendly versions. In the case of the Nekopara games you can install patches on top of the Steam versions that turns them into the 18+ versions, which have really explicit hentai scenes. Not that I would have experience with such things. *cough* ;)

VN's are Niche, but they are extremely important. These games can go for anywhere from 30-60 bucks on the high end, and have NEVER gone on sale. Why? Because the niche audience is willing to pay this amount. Removing just one major VN for having a sexual nature can scare all this money and devs away to a marketplace who is willing to host it.... Hey, like GOG! GOG just announced they are allowing VN's on their service. They are a big business, not so much in the US, but in Japan and China, they are crazy popular. Who knows? Once people start buying their VN's on GOG maybe they'll stick around and spend more money on other games. If they remove Huniepop or Huniecam and knowing how much sway they have over the NA VN market, this could cause a large fallout.

Some visual novels are smart enough to skirt the censors by putting a non-adult version on steam and letting people download an ''adult patch'' on their site to unlock the adult content.

Warp Scanner they should get their own section I have my steam set to filter out anime content and I still get it not sure if it's valves fault or dock heads incorrectly tagging things. but anyway it really pisses me off that a good high quality game with lots of effort but it gets easily out sold and steam reviewed by anime tits and 0 effort :(
Warp Scanner (1 month ago)
They are sold in the game section because they are executable, rather than just a video. I mean, this is just a technical complaint, and is only a step removed from the whole "are walking simulators games?" debate. It doesn't matter, they should be allowed on Steam.

Warp Scanner they are poot quality for a mobile game these games are pretty much diviantart images of anime girls with a few lines or poorly written dialogue at most, a visual novels not even a bloody game what's it doing on steam! (yes I do know steam has some video but these are sold in the game section rather then video.
Warp Scanner (1 month ago)
I don't play them, I think they look dumb but there are games of clearly far worse quality still on the platform, the reasoning of sexual content is the act of a censor, not quality control.

why are you surprised you should know by now these retards are caving to the sjws and morality police everywhere. there is a reason basically every multi player game is failing and a handful of single player games are succeeding. we arent in a time of innovation or creation the retards are everywhere and society for some reason seems to want to keep them alive. edit in 7:00 bull shit and you know it they are jsut lazy and greedy like every other company at present. fuck you i dont care go away. all the sjws and morality police ever have to be told but since they are the social power houses for some bizarre reason they say it to us instead.

One thing that's good from this is the fact it brings attention to these VNs. Many of them are already announcing that they're games are also on other sites like GOG. In fact, I even found out about one website I never existed, Jastusa. So, thanks Valve, for helping to let me know about these other sites! I know where I'm going for my VN fix now.

If Valve goes through with this I'm done with the service, mostly out of moral obligation more than anything. You see it's not a platform holder's responsibility to censor materials, that is on the people consuming it. If you have a problem with Anime or Nudity, that's on you, and Steam does have tags to let you know it's IN the game. If Valve agrees to censor this then what's to stop me from putting together a lobbying team to get them to ban all games that have generic looking white blokes? Where does it end?
Kokuyous3ki (1 month ago)
Stuff like these games... can they even be called pornographic? No offense but celebrities dress more... revealing than these drawn or 3d characters. And those people are not censored. Hell, kids here dress way more.... ah wait, so this is what's they want? To blame it on the games again... ah. Yea, let's forget that parents should be parenting and stop their kids from falling pregnant before the age of ten. Win for parents? WHAT? Age restrictions are there for a reason and now we are at a point where they cut stuff CLEARLY not for children because children might see it? These lazy a** excuses for parents are one thing but letting them have their way is crazy. I'm seriously up for an "adult only" area on steam. I don't mind, if that's what it takes. To be honest I wouldn't mind if games had more social content, talking, actual rpg stuff and much less murder and killing. And way less pvp multiplayer only sh*t. I saw some pretty good Korean mmos that are actually way more focused on social interaction and they can be tremendously fun. Yes, sex might not be the best idea to show our kids but even hardcore porn seems way more healthy than violence if you ask me. Yea I know, nobody asked me. Nobody asked anyone actually - they just said that they want others to take the blame for their lack of parenting skills. I guess I'm just too much of a pve/coop player and would rather work together with others instead of murdering them. I know, what a sickening way of life...

I am so damn sick of religious groups forcing their morals on other people like this. They could actually be working on stopping sex trafficking in real life or anything else actually helpful. It's the job of parents to control what their children consume, and steam has always had the option to hide sexually explicit material. So yeah MIM can fuck off. :/

That's it, I'm done using Steam. I was willing to tolerate some of the other shit they've pulled as a company since I liked their service, but this put me over the edge. I will not stand for censorship, especially when it's aimed at a medium I feel very strongly for. To quote Geralt on this issue, "There better be one. Or you'll feel the invisible hand of the market smack you so hard you won't be able to sit down for a week."

As always, covering good topics with good arguments. Good job! My concern is a bit out of space: where exactly is a the cutting line between pornography (I don't want my kids to see) and elegant erotic content (I don't mind my kids to look for / look at), also where is the age for the latter. (as the latter does not fit in the government/law-owned bucket)... I personally have not limits for those... too young kids do not care, and as soon they care, I don't mind.
BowlUndrFire (1 month ago)
Back when Steam was little more than a platform for TF2, this made sense. I was actually part of a team developing a VN at the time, we considered submitting it to something like Steam but the short answer was 'lol no that will never happen unless we at least make a complete NSFW version' Zoom over half a decade later to the present, and we're in an age where Steam has promotions for just about everything that could possibly fit on the service. VNs have clearly been a part of that for at least a few years, I can't get the flood of them off of my bloody Steam feed. But apparently Steam wants to just now realize it never wanted to be progressive in the first place? Guess it's back in its own stone age.

iTA360 COM (1 month ago)
Sorry for my english language not good, i think Valve must add to Steam a filter in the "New Releases page" so people can not see "Visual Novel" or "Nudity" tagged games if they don't want, also valve must to enable people to have an unlimited quantity of words to filter (or at least 100) because right now is possible to filter only a little quantity of words (5 or like this) and this i really disagree top of that this filter work only in some place of the store (for example discovery etc.) but would be + useful in the new releases for me. For Example i like only Dynamic Adventure,Adventure,Action and FPS | i don't like Jrpg,horror,Anime,Visual Novel,mmorpg,sport\racing, games etc. but the valve store (same as the xbox,ps and nintendo store) sadly is full of that visual novel etc. games,and i'm so bored to see always all this games in the new releases but i can't filter it because the filter not work in the new releases page and also filter words is limited quantity not enough.

This is not okay. If their entire premise is "think of the children" (of this one "morality" group), who knows what else they might want Steam to get rid of? I don't play visual novels that often, and most of those I do play don't contain any pornographic content, but I still think it can have a place in gaming. You know, with an 18+ label and a tag of "pornographic content". If you find your kid playing a pornographic game, or a violent game and you don't agree with it, you should lecture your kid about it, not force the provider to push all those things out.

Steam was never the "to be place", to begin with! Valve in a nutshell is a massive $hitshow! Its a multi *BILLION* dollar company, and if they act at all. They act so slow, even a Sloth can have 20 naptimes in-between until something actually happens. They also take *ZERO RESPONSIBILITY* for anything! They take all your money. They take a huge junk of money away from everyone making business with them. From games, movies, DLC, MTX everything! And Valve returns nothing! No customer support at all! If a game does not work, your loss. Game Curation, was half arsenly put into the hands of shills and other stupid Youtubers as well, instead of doing it right! Big Picture Mode is still in early alpha, a buggy mess, ugly, not fully functional. Still not fully Gamepad supportable. Or even locking some out. All in all just utter trash! 4K UI scaling for the launcher still trash. There is nothing good at Steam. Just another god awful DRM platform to steal your money and to hold your purchase hostage! And fat POS Gaben has a net value of *over 5.5 BILLION $* that would be $11B for Valve itself. Yet ZERO responsibility! Not from Valve, not from Gaben!! Look at this story here. Is it positive, or is it negative for the consumer and/or for the small developers? In both cases is negative. Its bad Valve news again. Nothing positive to report from this company aka anti consumer money grabbing Machinery as usual! Its disgusting!!

Good get this garbage off steam. Spend an hour at least every week going through recommended lists just click not interested on as much litteral garbage as i can to give the algorithm a better idea of what to recommend and what not to. I've been doing this for over a year and STILL trash like this all i see. Its all thats on the home page, its all thats recommended, its all that the curators talk about, its that comes up when i do vague searches. I don't think steam has shown me a real game in over 2 years. I don't think steam has even shown me a game made by more than a 3 man team in over 2 years. At a minimum, 60 percent of steams library needs to be purged. Starting with crap like this.
