I have steam up and running on my Linux system after following these instructions: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Steam

I am about to start trying some of the non-native Linux games (via Steam's Proton) and noticed that my system has
games-util/steam-meta-0-r20160817 installed but there is also a games-util/steam-games-meta-0-r20180619 available and with a newer version.

Should I switch from steam-meta to steam-games-meta? (Currently I'm thinking "If it ain't broke don't 'fix' it.")

What is the difference between steam-meta and steam-games-meta ?

Code:
* games-util/steam-meta [1]
     Available versions:  ~0-r20160817 {+steamruntime}
     Homepage:            https://steampowered.com
     Description:         Meta package for Valve's Steam environment

* games-util/steam-games-meta [1]
     Available versions:  ~0-r20180619 {mono steamgames_ +steamruntime VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia"}
     Homepage:            https://steampowered.com
     Description:         Meta package for Steam games

Are two different things, one is a meta packages for steam env and other is for steam games.
In addition steam-games-meta is a dependency of steam-meta

Thank you. I didn't realize they were different. (I was thinking that Steam was synonymous with games.)
