seemed to focus on whether the game was good based on reviews, whether it was playable on their operating systems, what extra downloadable content was available, etc.
wanted to know more of the technical details, like system requirements, as well as developer updates/game patch notes.
However, I realized there was also a third category of users that was unrepresented in my survey.
The game developers and publishers
put their games up on Steam's marketplace, and for some, selling games is their livelihood. They publish game information, graphics, and more to pitch their games to potential buyers, and they also can read reviews for feedback. They end up using the platform just as much as players do!
From my research, I came up with 2 goals to focus on in my redesign:
the site to be more aesthetically pleasing and more digestible, with less scrolling!
Meet all stakeholders' needs
and keep them happy as much as possible. This includes all the users outlined previously, but also Steam as a business. Steam is the marketplace that allows all this interaction to happen, so it needs to stay afloat through successful marketing of their products.
