Also, however, remember that if your game makes $1000 or more, you get your $100 back. And what percentage of games that paid the $100 don't hit the $1000? Maybe 1000 are bogus, so won't make $1000, so won't get their money back, meaning Steam pockets $100,000. Enough to pay for 1-2, at most, additional employees for a year. The economics works out that the retained fee pays for 1 guy to check out all 1000 of those games.
Oh, forgot about that detail. Ignore what I said then.

Bah, there are already many games on steam that are just as violent as the asset flipped garbage that was active shooter

Postal 1 is all about active shooting, hell, it ends at an elementary school.
Postal 2 is a lot more wacky, but still violent and super offensive.
Hatred, which is basically a modern successor to Postal 1. Was briefly removed from Steam before being reinstated by gaben himself

All I'm saying is you gotta put effort into your murder simulator if you want it to sell

I'm at the point of thinking that we only pretend to have taboos at this point. That really nothing shocks us anymore, but we pretend that it does because, like, what else is left for the debased lowest common denominator consumer? Besides ramping up the offensiveness to newer, previously unheard of vistas, until all games and movies that are aiming for this particular form of exploitation become moving, interactive Francisco Goya-wannabes?

What do you have against Goya? He's one of my favourite painters, along with Caspar David Friedrich

That  means you're sensitive to it, it doesn't make it exploitation or bad art.

As long as people don't all start trying to make Readymades, I think there's still some hope for art as we know it.

I think. I'm not entirely certain, however.

Andres Serrano?


Postal 2 is a lot more wacky, but still violent and super offensive.

Postal 2 is such an incredibly dumb game... I don't know why I enjoy it as much as I do.

Unfortunately most of the particularly entertaining stuff goes out the window on POSTAL difficulty, which of course I had to start pushing through because I feel the need to prove something.

I ran my toe/foot over with a jack holding over a ton. Somehow it's pretty much fine. Toe is sore but nothing was broken or degloved.

Disparaging Readymades is ableist.

I kept reading that as Portal 1 & 2 and I became very confused.

Portals need flat, hard surfaces

So what are the guns shooting?  Not portals.  Like some gunk?
