I am sure you have noticed a change in your favourite gaming sites has started happening in recent years. Between EA's social system for the Sims, Spore and Dragon Age which tends to be all about EA and not about gamers or gaming, Ubisofts not so great system and now Steam revamping everything to bring it in to line with current gaming fashions, the old systems like Fileplanet and Nexus are being pushed a side for a more personal approach.
A facebook of gaming style is emerging where we have our friends and can share with them and then there is everybody else.
Gaming has had troll problems for some time but for the first time in history, we are getting the features needed to make our own circle of friends in to our own gaming community, giving us the ability to lock out anybody we do not like.
The future of gaming is about getting along, not trolling, its about one of your friends being a good with guides, one of your friends being a good modder, one of your friends being good in multiplayer because that is your community, what happens in somebody elses community has nothing to do with you unless you join it.
People like me always find it easy to make friend, but I hold my friends up to higher standards than most can manage. There are things I like to see such as honesty, and there are things I dislike such as bullying and lies.
So my circle of friends will be about truth, friendly behaviour and having fun. That will be my gaming world when these new fangled systems finally settle down to a set theme.
There is so much to gaming than playing games and many of them only support playing games, there are guides, videos, mods, most of which steam supports.
With steams recent previews of changes currently being tested in a private beta, it looks like steam may lead the way when these changes hit the net for everybody.
The change I am most looking forward to is the ability to give you all nicknames, so even if you change your name. Your name still remains the same here. Currently I remove people form my steam list the moment they change their name and I no longer recognise them.
I never have been one for keeping 100s of strangers as friends.
That is what the Steam TEG group is for, those I get to know get added to my friends list eventually.
