Valve announces Steam Reviews
Valve has announced Steam Reviews, a crowd-sourced review system that allows gamers to give ratings on any game that they have in their Steam library.
In order to combat participants abusing the rating system, there will be a few extra features in place. One of these is the ability to rate the reviews given, a feature that is seen on places like Amazon. Also, since players can only review Steam games that they have actually played, the amount of time you have spent playing a game you review will be included in parenthesis. This will allow those interested in your review to see just how long you played before you decided to post about the game, which should cut down on people giving low scores to games that end up being great, but just take a while to get going.
