I eventually figured out where to see soundtracks…
Steam Client > Library > change dropdown from GAMES to SOUNDTRACKS
…and discovered I have 5 there, no idea why. "Installed" 'em and got 4 folders of MP3s, and a couple of FLACs, in…
…from where I promptly moved them to my HDD Music folders—no point leaving them lost somewhere I'd never look for them.
I've never knowingly bought a soundtrack. Or artwork, or interview with dev, or etc etc… Which is maybe odd, as when I had spare cash I used to buy complete games I knew I'd never play, just to support devs or say 'Thank you' for another game I'd gotten hundreds of hours of pleasure from.
Counted mine up, and I have 21 soundtracks. With only a couple of exceptions, they were simply given to me when I bought the regular game as opposed to a special edition. I guess some devs just put it out there as an add-on.
I have 18 videos. 15 are from Oats Studios who released a "Black Mirror" type season of video shorts onto Steam in order to help fund their next indie movie. The others are indie movies during Steam's brief foray into hosting movies.
Speaking of that, when Steam first started with movies it was literally the best place to buy movies online. They were all indie movies, movies made with love, artistry and intelligence. And then the flood gates opened and huge movie studios poured their entire backlogs on their, and you could no longer find the, you know, interesting movies. If only they had stuck to only indie movies, I think it could have amounted to something. As it is, the whole experiment failed, not in small part due to movie studios having an inflated notion as to how much their movies are worth. 40 year old movies for $24.99? Yeah, no thanks. They need to take a hint from the gaming industry.
(ps. I'm so thankful for this site. At least a couple of people will read my story about Steam movies. I just told this to my wife, but she never looked up from her Netflix binge and said, "I didn't know you could buy movies on Steam" after I just finished telling her that they didn't sell movies on Steam anymore
At least Guido still listens to me, but he's in his room studying to retake the ACT and shoot for a perfect score. I told him he already beat me by 3 points and that now he's just going to rub it in
