[Update]: Steam has now greatly improved the process of searching for games through keywords.

Back when I didn't have a lot of money to work with, whenever I got a brand new game I'd usually play it religiously for months on end. These days, with massive sales, various bundles and an overwhelming amount of quality games, I've started having a bit of a different problem. I just have no idea where to even begin with my ever-growing backlog of great games!

If you share my predicament, you might be glad to hear that Steam has now introduced a rather nifty new tool. To put it simply, it uses the same technology as Steam's recommend system to help you choose which game to play next, all based on what you've recently played and what type of games you tend to stick with.

The system is still in development so don't be surprised if it recommends you something strange, but for me it worked surprisingly well. It recommended me Warframe, a game I was already considering getting back into, as well as the boss-fighter FURI which I started and never finished despite enjoying the whole experience. So for a purely AI-generated suggestion, the "Play Next" feature seems to be a pretty solid one!

You can learn a little bit more about it, as well as check out the system yourself, over at Steam. Have fun!
