It needs to be actually optional (ie. you can collapse some things, but not that). Having things on the screen that are just taking up space is not useful to me. If you like it, you can keep it. I don't like it, it does little more than clutter up the screen for me, so it being actually optional would benefit everyone. Couple that with there is a section near the top with new releases, so their shouldn't be another section with new releases in your "Queue". The Curators you are following shouldn't be in the middle of the screen, it should be a sidebar, at least that is how I would like.Sight Unseen said:You can easily ignore it.. It's hidden away at the bottom of the page and doesn't take up much space.Baresark said:It's not optional, you cannot turn it off. If you scroll down and plan on using any of the "New Releases" or "Top Sellers" Steam lists, then you have to see it. Clicking through it is the most annoying bit. It loads each steam page rather than giving you a list you can just choose an action from. If you read the rest of my comment, I talk about how the algorithm they user to decide what is on that list is screwed up and does not work anyway.Sight Unseen said:Optional component is optional... It's at the bottom of the store page, I can't even see mine from the top of the main page so it won't block your precious featured list.Baresark said:annoying. That discover queue needs to be gone now.
The queue will be customized to you. If you have a game on it that you don't want then just click the "not Interested" button and it will go away...They should give us the ability to customize it
Steam's needed something like the discover queue for a long time. Time will tell whether their chosen method of implementation will work well but it looks promising to me.
On my first queue it gave me some reasonable selections. I'm not going to run out and buy any of them just yet but it allowed me to keep my eye on them and alerted me to some games that I wasn't really aware of.
Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it needs to go away. Is it really that hard to ignore?
If they made this actually customizable, it would be very nice. But they aren't, they are just cluttering the screen with more ads for games for you to buy. I have a much larger Steam list than every single person I know, so me buying games shouldn't be an issue and I should have some say in how the store page looks. It was better before because it wasn't inundated with useless information.
