Valve has removed a bunch of its movies from Steam in an effort to bring the focus back to gaming, the company has announced.

Steam launched its video service a little while ago featuring some pretty good titles like Indie Game: The Movie, from here it seemed to pile in more video content including big blockbusters like The Hunger Games. Now it seems, no one really watches those titles, so Valve is getting rid.

“In reviewing what Steam users actually watch, it became clear we should focus our effort on offering content that is either directly related to gaming or, is accessory content for games or software sold on Steam,” Valve said in a Statement.

“As part of this refocus, we have retired the Video section of the Steam Store menu with an expectation that video content is discovered via the associated game or software store page, or through search, user tags, recommendations, etc.”

Those who previously purchased video content through Steam’s video section will continue to own that content but moving forward non-gaming videos will no longer exist on the platform.
