Have fun sorting through the "Overrated" and "Garbage" tags!

Steam has just rolled out a new system called Steam Tags, to help users find, sort, and recommend games for others.
The tags work much as you’d expect, with users able to ‘tag’ games however they feel best suits the product in question. This has already had the perhaps unfortunate side effect of users creating tags such as ‘Bad‘, ‘Garbage‘, ‘Overrated‘ and ‘Not A Game‘.
The FAQ on Steam’s Announcement page addresses this question specifically, suggesting that developers who don’t agree with the tags on their games should consider that “tags can be a good indicator of when there is a mismatch between how you perceive your game, and how your game is perceived by customers.”
“Often this is simply because there is some piece of information regarding the game that customers feel is missing from the store page.”
