Thoughts on the new Steam library

Thread about the new Steam client update.

I think it's pretty nice. Finally can customize the artwork for the games which is useful for finding games quickly without reading endless titles. The library doesn't look like an out of date website from 2007 and free-to-play games also show up in the library despite being uninstalled, and sorting games out is easier. I did notice it's a bit laggy but I think that's just me. 

Why all the hate, though?

    To me, Valve no longer innovates, instead copy. It now looks like Origin/Epic store--LIbrary section only.

    LIbrary was originally seperate into Games, Tools, Video, Software, now it's hidden under a List Checkbox.

    The Library Home makes zero sense, as now you can simply go to the sidebar, search and boom!

    I'll have to wait for an update Metro Steam skin.

    Valve products, after a years of update, it felt as though the developers are lazy. Their 'newly added feature' feels like it was quickly pushed out with bandaids. If it's somewhat broken, they will fix it, yet, their fixed feels like they are adding more bandaids.

    Regarding Epic vs Steam launcher, Steam had more than a decade, meanwhile Epic store is just less than two years old, and was only there to accommodate Fortnite and Epic Games' games.

    I bet Satan Gayben is too fat or drowned in all of that money.

    I prefer the new layout, no competition. It's easier to navigate and it's not a giant waste of 90% of the screen space. An improvement in every way.
