Over 1,000 Steam banned games for abusing the recommendation system, asset theft and other causes
After the mysterious disappearance of a considerable amount of Steam games, Valve has stepped up to acknowledge having banned several distributors and their catalog of games for “abusing Steamworks tools.”
Apparently some companies would have been taking advantage of the recommendation system and game bundles to gain visibility, but Valve has not offered specific details about the decision.
Steam Tools shows a list of all games banned to date. A total of 2,903 that would have gained weight up to that figure thanks to the thousand games that have been banned during the last hours. The cleaning coincides with the start of the Black Friday sales that will occur today.
