Geez, I'm not charging enough.
I think Steam is mostly to blame for allowing this garbage on their market. They have no quality control of their own, and the community is doing an awful job at it. Didn't Gabe say greenlight was an awful idea and they planned to replace it?
Ya, Gabe said something like that after they announced Greenlight. But at the same time if someone can't tell a game is bad from the developer then they can just look at the user reviews on the same page.
I'd be willing to bet most of the reviews are socially engineered.
Since steam is one of the biggest retailers of indie games it is irresponsible of them not to have some kind of quality control. It was predictable from the beginning that it would be flooded with cheaply produced content - with this asset-rip-off strategy as a new low. As a result good productions are harder to find. Developers who put efforts in their products earn less money which demotivates them to produce more which harms the whole industry.
