Days later, Steam community is still in an uproar over paid mods debacle

Hayden Dingman | April 28, 2015
It's been four long, tumultuous days to be a PC gamer. We round up what happened this past weekend, from Gabe Newell's Reddit Q&A to mod theft to in-game pop-ups.

I don't think you can quantify how much damage this whole morass has done to both the Skyrim community and Valve's reputation, though. Even if Valve wins out and paid mods become the norm, I have a feeling this whole mess is going to haunt Steam for a while. It'll linger, the way people still bring up when Call of Duty ditched dedicated servers, or Ubisoft forcing Uplay, or the pile of garbage that was Games for Windows Live.

We'll keep you updated as this whole thing progresses.
