Steam’s new store center makes browsing games more enjoyable

Remember those “experiments” that were being carried out in the Steam Lab? It’s been a while since we talked about them last time, but it’s basically a Beta testing system for Steam’s new features. Users can choose to join or not, depending on their interest in whatever it offers. Most of the new features are to make the large number of games on Steam easier to manage through better recommendations or more flexible browsing methods.

It also contains a “rich recommendation carousel”, which contains “new, best-selling and discounted” games curated by Steam’s recommendation system through algorithms.
