…yeah basically these cards things for people who have lots of spare time on their hands (not old(Or I guess age doesn't really matter…hahaha), no kids, unemployed, etc.)
There was a gnome in HL2? I was not aware of that on my playthrough…..
Yeah I agree with you on some of the achievements, like you fired 1000 bullets and those sorts of lame ones….
Grinding mainly only exists on RPGs….so if you're an RPG sort of person…….yeah….but it can become some form of an achievement once you come out of it and get whatever it is you wanted out of it….if you managed to stay long enough…hahahaha
Oh god, them OCD completionists…….good luck trying to get all those achievements(some of which are impossible because they've been removed or something, I remember reading one game that had such if for your profile to look good with 100% achievements on every game, except that, because you can't really do it because something was removed…)……

Once again you can earn trading cards which you can craft into a Steam Award badge. Cards can be earned by making a purchase, voting in the Steam Awards (vote everyday and receive a trading card), browsing through your Discovery Queue (you can earn two a day just by doing this) and of course you can also purchase cards through the Marketplace.
On that, if you aren’t fussed with badges, put your trading cards up for sale on the market and earn yourself a few extra bucks toward that game you want.
If you aren’t sure what you should be spending your hard earned money on then take a gander at our extensive gaming holiday gift guide.

The Steam Winter Sale has begun, providing oodles of PC games with discounts up to 90% off, though most are closer to 50% off. If you’ve had on your eye on PC games this year, now could be the time, though most of the discounts aren’t much different than last month’s Autumn Sale. The Steam Winter Sale ends January 4, 2018.
Here are some notable highlights:
Like in the Autumn Sale, the Steam Link has again received a massive discount of $4.99 (90% off). The Steam Link is a physical device that lets you stream Steam games directly to your TV.
The Steam Winter Sale also features The Steam Awards. Every day of the sale you can vote in a new category. The nominees were voted on during the last Steam sale, and weren’t limited to 2017 games. The first day’s award is “Choices Matter.” The nominees are The Witcher 3, Dishonored 2, Divinity: Original Sin 2, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
Each vote nets you a Steam Awards Trading Card. Gathering a full set lets you craft the Steam Award badge. You can also earn cards by browsing you Discovery Queue (up to three times per day) as well as earning them by making purchases during the sale.
The Steam Winter Sale ends January 4, 2018.
VividVioletdailycamp, Mar 13, I always sold my cards, badges are just for profile levels right? They make a lot of money with it. . really only for Kingdom: New Lands and the last Winter Sale/Steam Awards event.
Today we are going to talk about recent changes in a popular system of Steam trading cards, which were first introduced back in 2013 and their main goal was to provide an additional value for gamers on Steam. These cards are used for crafting of virtual badges which are displayed on player’s profile and help to increase the profile’s level. These badges are also supposed to be trophies which publicly show your favors towards your favorite games. For developers, it is an easy tool to provide some type of rewarding system and from a long-term point of view even to enlarge their audience and get some additional publicity. Players have become more interested in collecting these cards since they started influencing Steam economy and Steam Market with its value. Unfortunately, this caught an attention of some sketchy developers, who started releasing games in bulk only to make a profit from these cards.
And how does it affect the Steam Market? Developers started handing out their games in form of game keys (that are issued for developers for beta-testing) to bots which farm these trading cards via 3rd party software and later sell them on Steam Market. This not only affects the real prices of Steam trading cards on the market, but it also provides a big amount of false & inaccurate information to Steam's algorithm which calculates with these metrics as one of the indexes of game’s popularity.
Even though Steam has made countless efforts on putting a stop to this with the cancellation of Steam Greenlight program and reducing the number of issued keys to developers, they always find new ways how to abuse this system and make money from it.
From this point on, not all games are allowed to have Steam trading cards unless they qualify for it and meet certain requirements which prove the game’s real value and quality to Valve. Let's hope that the positive effects of this change surpass the negative ones (there are even legit, small indie-developers, believe it or not). Nonetheless, it is still good to see that Steam cares about its users as well as the global Steam economy and what comes up on their screens.
