    Yeah I used to categorize my games with that, but it's not really worth the effort tbh. Just use the search to find what you need.

    Since most of western AAA games are gone, Steam's big hits are all about Japan: https://venturebeat.com/2019/03/22/...ice-had-the-best-steam-launch-of-2019-so-far/

    Now From and Capcom are the best friends of Valve. (Until Epic throws tens of millions in their way, of course. Wait for Dragon's Dogma 2 on Epic Store!)

    In the time it'll take to download, install, link to steam, experiment with different sorters, you cold make it manually for much better results.
    I wasted time with it at some point, only to make it manually in the end, becuase I was not satisfied with the results.

    If only Steam could understand the complex nature of subcategories.

    True, but on the other hand it's the only store that have categories at all.

    I dread the day when some update will take them away completeley, or replace with autosorting by tags and other crap.

    I have a rather specific problem with Steam and hoping someone can help me. I have been trying to add Albion(GoG version) as a non-steam game for the screenshot function, but for some reason it craps out every time I change target under priorities.

    This is the target:

    It's directly copied from the shortcut on the desktop, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here? I added Lands of Lore 1(GoG version) this way and that works. Help!

    No idea. What if you add that to a .bat and try to run it?

    Indeed, the Steam versions of the Doom games are run using batch files, so that might help.

    I'm not positive on a solution either, and Steam can be fucky when it comes to taking screenshots in Dosbox, but if you right-click your non-Steam listing for it in Steam and go to properties, "Set launch options" is where you usually add everything else. So you'd have "Start in: D:\Games\Albion\DOSBOX\" and "Target: D:\Games\Albion\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe" and then click set launch options and slap in "-conf "..\dosbox_albion.conf" -conf "..\dosbox_albion_single.conf" -noconsole -c exit".

    Just pulling it out of my ass though, can't remember what I did last time I added a Dosbox GoG thing to Steam since it was a few years back.

    Yeah, I'm stumped. The weird thing Lands of Lore, the only other GoG game I have installed currently works with no problem at all. Only changed the target, and renderer to OpenGL. The overlay don't work, but I can take screenshots, while Albion just totally craps out. Weird as hell, but oh well, appreciate the help.

    Some interesting things about top wishlists: https://store.steampowered.com/search/?filter=popularwishlist&os=win
    • Bloodlines 2 at the top. With all that livestreams and front page banner, looks like it's generating more "engagements" on Steam than The Outer Worlds.
    • I noticed some people doing un-wishlist campaign for games that turned into Epic exclusives, The Sinking City and Industries of Titan for example. But as far as I can tell, both games has climbed up the list since and it's not just because of some games there are released.

    Purchasable game vs non-purchasable game seems like it should matter here. There's more reason to wishlist a game you can buy.

    Once steam dies I'm done with video games. I am super autistic and need the hours to be counted on my profile or else I can't play. It's the main reason I haven't played Mask of the Betrayer.

    Apparently it does not show up in the list if a game has no release date data set. Now that Halo: The Master Chief Collection has one ("Coming Soon"), it reveals Halo is the most wanted game by Steam users!

    Interesting. They will probably lose out on this, there is a lot of gifting going on, and all that money will just disappear.

    Hmmm. Recent responses on it though.
