With the recent announcement by Valve that Steam would be an open platform with little to no moderation outside of removal of things that were illegal or trolling, turns out that yes controversial games will also be removed. With Valve removing seven titles from the platform in the past day or so.

And going by their names, you can figure out why.
  • Blackscreen Simulator
  • Suicide Simulator
  • AIDS Simulator
  • Glitch Simulator 2018
  • ISIS Simulator
  • Asset Flip Simulator
  • Triggering Simulator

With none of the above being what you'd call illegal, it's stuff mostly in poor taste or as Valve puts it "straight up trolling". Now, as Valve's recent policy announcement drew widespread acclaim from a vocal community of Steam users, and concern from most media, this news shows that Valve are indeed curating what can or can't appear on Steam.

This also is a little confusing as Valve stated that controversial titles dealing with 'politics, sexuality, racism, gender, violence, identity' wouldn't be targeted. And without giving a definition as to what it constitutes trolling, these removals are surprising.
