2014: A Year of Small But Cool Changes
we need a Steam Redlight ... a way for users to say "No don't put this game out yet! It's broken as fuck!".
MEZMERO FOR PRESIDENT
Looks like I just found my first cabinet member. My first act as President of Valve is to order a pizza.
I love this idea! This helps give the community an opportunity to see actual gameplay of these, ever increasing, early access games on Steam. A lot I want to buy based on the description but I am hesitant after being burned before. Being able to watch one of these Unfinished games will get me a lot more information to help me make a smart decision on games to buy. I think the volume of these early access games is a bad trend and this seems like one of the best things I've heard to help alleviate a lot of my problems with this trend, which I fear will only get worse with time. Keep up the good work!
I guess you don't really need a version number in these things as long as you say "As of 21st Jan 2013" in the video, so people can at least hear that.
Hopefully some games like DayZ standalone, Rust, Starbound etc will get a few check-ins every once in a while. Seeing ongoing development will be interesting.
Might I suggest some more staff members Mr Gerstmann?
I actually think that it shouldn't matter whether the developer believes the game is "finished" or "not". If the developer is charging money for it, it is reviewable. If it is reviewable, then it can be quick looked. Though, I am really glad that you guys found a way to cover these that you were comfortable with.
