Steam bans AI slop

Sorry indies, you will never ever compete with triple A studios.
AI is theft and should be banned, or at least not be profitable commercially.

Why is bot even shilling this?
What happened to the days of hard work and dedication? Why rely on AI at all?
Pathetic.

      No real artist would defend AI in any capacity. It's theft.
      It's trained on other people's hard work.
      Prompt engineering will never be a real form of work.

I still draw porn and earn a lot for it, AI or not, nothing changes for me. I wish I were able to generate my art instead of drawing, but it can't read my mind and output exactly what I want it to, sadly I won't be replaced.
        I played around with image generating myself though, it takes more time than drawing, but the results can be pretty good still.

    Games of AAA quality should only be made by AAA studios.

                Please explain, how is some shitty assetflip game with bad textures and models better than a game that could be said is objectively better, but uses AI generated music, or textures, etc.

                Just because it's "handmade" doesn't mean shit if you're using bought assets anyway. I can see some value in the game using 100% custom assets made by the devs, but even then I wouldn't automatically say it's better than assets made with AI (no matter the degree of assistance) *just because* they were made by an AI.

      Plenty of present-day A.I. generated art is difficult or nearly impossible to distinguish from traditionally drawn digital art. It passes as the trannies say. In practice, Valve can’t really tell the difference except for in the case of low quality shovelware. Additionally, what is also true - that A.I. generated assets are already used in games.

        Indeed, but its awakening alright.
        AI shills now have filters on all majors platforms, are being investigated thoroughly for copyright infringement and are being banned and being seeing as the grifters that they are.
        Slowly, but awakening. Cope below

    I would wager that Valve bans a lot of games. They're called shovelware. The whole premise is to make a game as quickly and cheaply as possible and hope to sell a few hundred copies before anyone catches on to how bad it is. Just because Valve won't let you publish yet another $4.99 hentai puzzle game that you made in the course of 30 minutes with Stable Diffusion doesn't mean Valve is explicitly targeting AI.

      There's so much asset-flipped shit.
      Are they finally cracking down on it or what?
      AI has the potential to make games much more immersive and engaging.
      It gives indies the chance to make current AAA titles and AAA studios the chance to make literal virtual-reality tier kino.
      It would make no sense for Steam to wiener block devs from AI, unless it's just the moe spam.
      Regardless, consumers should be smarter and less gullible when buying anything.
      It amazes me sports games like Madden, FIFA, and NBA 2Kxx still make truck loads.

          Are you really underestimating AI?
          Not sucking Altman's dick, just being real here.
          GPT5 will most likely be AGI and once that happens, gamedev, animation, movie making, medicine, life itself, what have you, will be piss easy.
          Yeah.
          More games.
          Which isn't a bad thing.
          More games, and by people who aren't stringed to soulless corporate buffs.
          Sure they'll be some shit, but, like, don't buy the crap? What, can you consumers not resist burning money on whatever fluff pops up on your screen?

            There are 2 possible outcomes:

            1) AI is a Sigmoid curve (pic related), which is the most apparent, as GPT4 was a much smaller improvement than GPT3, and full self-driving cars are "just 2 more years" away since 2016.

            2) An AGI breakthrough happens and the world will be engulfed into chaos.
            The internet will turn unusable as any bot will be able to solve captchas and pretend to be human and a full blown nuclear war will be inevitable as AI will be weaponized.

            You won't enjoy option 2.

            More games really is a bad thing, it's the worst possible thing. Games made by people who "aren't stringed to soulless corporate buffs" will never see the light of day. Games are already very dependent on marketing to sell, when you multiply the amount of games released every day by 2x-5x then marketing becomes an even stronger necessity to been seen through the horde.
            Guess what you need to have good marketing? Money. Guess who doesn't have money? Everyone but "soulless corporations".
            Steam already gets ~30 games released on it every single day, there is only so much ad space for so many games. Who do you think is going to own this ad space? Billion dollar corporations or some indie dev in Ohio?

        Don't look into the video game scientific literature coming out then, the more that comes out the more its starting to look like video games hijack and tickle the exact same parts of the brain that gambling does. You know trading card games like Pokemon and Magic? They technically are considered gambling, we have the neural evidence now to say that there is very little difference between opening a pack of cards and hoping you get a rare or that 1 card that you want and gambling. The only reason it wasn't illegalized in America and the EU was due to how the legal language was set up, because you technically don't "lose" anything and gain cards it can't be conisdered gambling. Though its very obvious that when you open a pack of trading cards you can win or lose depending on what you're looking for in the cards.
        But yeah, older video games that were made before corporations started having the Gambling Association of America review and suggest things to make their games more addictive are okay. Now almost everything from the sounds they use, to the music, to the bright flashing lights in a AAA game, is or was most likely reviewed by a the GAA for maximum dopamine manipulation to get you to play as long as possible. But if video games aren't gambling, why are they consulting with the GAA?

          stop playing gambling games, then
          i get where you're coming from, but not all that many games are actually like that
          admittedly a lot of popular games now are like that, but i would blame the people playing them than the games themselves, companies don't decide what is popular

            Neither do consumers if its addictive and there aren't adequate protections for them. I'm sure if you put cocaine back into coke it would be consumed 100% or near 100% of the human population daily.

              this is far, far from anything new, gaming has simply become popular with enough people for this to become apparent, that's all
              gambling video games have been around since the beginning of video games, the whole industry spawned from arcades, which started as gambling systems and only later did we get video games made only for the sake of personal entertainment
              i do think it's really sad that kids are caught up in these kinds of games though, they don't even know the kind of damage these kinds of games are doing to them

                Disagree, originally if we aren't talking about slots and actual gambling machines, it was just quarters or low amounts of pocket change, later when gaming became hand-held and computers became popular they made games that didn't use any real money at all, which could be seen both as a positive and negative thing depending on how you lean personally on the issue. But its getting bad again because its no longer "pocket change" or "credits" its now actual decent amounts of money, paid for by linking your credit card, and is dangled in the you're face constantly. Its even in more child-like games like Fortnite. It doesn't help that the American legal system ruled trading cards as "not gambling" and its not an accident that others are now taking advantage of that ruling with digital loot boxes that can sometimes cost more than 7 dollars a pop. I don't know if you are aware of LolzDollz? My little Cousin fricking loves them, but they are the same thing as pokemon cards but they are dolls you buy in capsules and you don't know what you're getting till you open them. Which, you know, its fine I guess, I started with pokemon at around the same age and look how I turned out :^). But if future me could go back to past me or at least my past parents I would tell them no to buy them for me, or if they did just kinda be aware of gambling tendencies.

                i wrote two >1000 character responses, deleting them both, just to realise i can't really justify why pokemon trading cards are more tolerable than in-game item purchases
                i had some as a kid as well
                idk man, at least with pokemon cards you own them forever, they aren't consumable and risking losing them in a game is entirely up to the rules you agree upon with your opponent and isn't related to their random nature
                never heard of lolzdollz no, only kids i know are all on the edge of adulthood themselves now

    Not gonna read the whole thread but I'm gonna assume that what's actually being deleted is chinkshit spam games that are just 99% AI, like a VN with barely any writing (possibly even AI generated writing) + AI art. AI would have created nearly the entirety of that game so they're just selling AI generated shit. They're something similar to the low effort asset flip games that fill the store and people have been complaining about for a long time, except now near zero human effort is required for these.

    I've heard of some actual games that use AI art for i.e. character portraits because they're entirely gameplay focused RPGs made by one person or a very small team without an artist. Haven't heard of any of these getting deleted so I'm guessing that generalized twitter screenshot in the OP is Epic Games shillery or something.

    It's a fair decision. You have to own the images and other content in the ga,e to sell it. ai might do half the work, providing the code, but you have to vreate the images yourself or own the rights to them.
