    Oh, you mean that Steam service meant to flank Parsec?
    You could already use Parsec without any issues for RetroPie, so I also don't see the real advantage.
    More visibility is nice, but I feel like all those new RetroArch Steam user won't understand the difference between piracy and playing your own ripped backup. I expect a shitfest on Steam's forum tbh.

    I'd imagine there would be. If it uses the same folder structure as Steam-less Retroarch, you could simply put the core dlls in here

    For everyone saying, "What's the point", isn't this kind of the same thing as DOSBox and SCUMMVM? Those are both freely available emulators that I can install on my own without Steam. But because they are integrated into Steam it allowed me to legally buy some games like Commander Keen (DOSBox) and Freddie The Fish (SCUMMVM). Both of those games I could have pirated and played with the same emulators outside if Steam but instead purchased so that I could support the developers. Isn't this the same kind of thing that having RetroArch on Steam will do? Like developers who want to sell their games now have a way to do it through Steam and RetroArch? I personally think it's a great idea and just really curious why there is a lot of hate or skepticism about it when it seems like the same thing it's already being done with those other 2 emulators I mentioned.

    Honestly, is becomes mainstream and easier for people to find and use, while “gamers” know about it more casual people can get into so having an easier way to find the most up to date version is always a plus, i just learned about retroarch last year so there you go

    As long as I won't be forced to use steam for retroarch in the future I'm fine with this. A sanctioned emulator release like that is unusual though, I didn't expect this to happen.
