Removed this because it doesn't explain anything. What legend? What happened in the story? This example isn't interesing, useful, or even necessary valid.

Bad, bad title! Bad title!

The way this trope is named suggests "Older than Valve's Steam platform" i.e. prior to 2003. You need a different trope name friends.

I know it could be taken that way, but I just (like, this month) went through all the examples and wicks, and there was only one example of misuse from somebody who thought it applied to modern games.

Without a pattern of misuse, it really doesn't need a rename.

If such misuse does become a problem in the future, though, I'd probably take it to Trope Repair Shop.

Firstly, steam has been ever since water. Secondly Heron created a door opening device and a fire engine based on steam.

I believe The Oldest Ones in the Book explains the naming convention at the bottom of the page. Short version: It means Older Than The Time When Steam Power Was Widely Economically And Culturally Significant.
