Games not showing because of sorting order #62
For example, if you open "All Steam games" tab and type in "getting", you'll get only one result, because the default sorting order is "Metascore". There are two other games with "getting" in the name that will show if you sort by "Game name".
I think that (1) sorting order shouldn't filter out results, and (2) the default sorting order should be "Game name".
I think that this is an interesting topic. What you describe is happening in each of the tabs, either all games, library, etc.
When we built the filters, we decided that had no sense to display games without metascore when an user sorts by metascore. That is true for each of the scores, release dates, any any data we don't have. We think that just makes sense to provide what the user is asking for.
About the default sorting method for
I see that there are issues here, and frankly, we have been thinking a lot about how we could improve our sorting methods, but I think that there must be a better solution than changing the default sorting method and including games where they don't belong.
I think you know we have been working in a new browser layout.
This will be in the beta view in a few days, and will become the default browser in a month or two.
