The Steam platform just received an upgrade from Valve that should aid customers who spend a lot of time looking around the Steam Store for new games. This is due to redesigning the search feature, which returns a broader range of results every time you search.
Naturally, you can still locate games quickly if you know exactly what you’re looking for, but the new search feature should be more helpful if you only have a basic idea of what you’re in the mood for.
Previously, when you searched for games on Steam, all you found were other games. The most likely thing you were looking for would appear on the top, followed by related results, and so on.
You will now have the option to search for items other than games, though. Search results will include tags, broad categories, developers, publishers, and franchises.
In other words, if you already know what kind of game you want—a dungeon crawler or a zombie game—you can type that into the search bar and get started.
“Released today, the auto-suggestion drop-down that appears when you start typing into the main search field in the Steam store will now return tags, developers, publishers, and franchises if there are reasonable matches,” Valve said regarding this week’s latest update. “You can search for categories like ‘Free to play’ or individual tags like ‘survival’ or ‘zombies.'”

Other general terms like “Bethesda” or “Star Wars” will also give you a general concept of what to look for. Valve announced that the search tool would tolerate misspellings better and would most likely get the desired result for individuals who search too quickly to type things correctly.
