Steam was released in 2004 while its first publishing partnership was confirmed somewhere near the end of 2005, it's 2011 now, that's hardly what I would call "recently".

Besides, L4D is supposed to be a small team-based game, there's nothing to argue otherwise, and that is not perse a reason why the game was made with consoles in mind first.

Supporting PC-gamers doesn't mean 'include all the current day features for high-end GPU's" not everybody has a state of the art GPU.
Valve has done well, maintaining the Source engine and provide support for legacy hardware, that way nearly everybody with a PC can play their games.

That's what I call PC support, yes.

EA just adding tons of graphical features and allowing for 64-players, singling out a ton of PC gamers, not so much.

Bah, Novalogic supported 128 players with Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising.

As for the last page and a half...
EA isn't making bf3.
How dare we question valve ? lol
The next cs is coming for mac, consoles (ARCADE) and pc

I still like valve more, but your comment seems a bit biased.

I know the whole devs != publishers, but I am referring to EA's various studio's as a whole by just calling them EA

The whole orange box was ported to the 360, who says they won't do the same here? Honestly... it being on a console != it being a console port! COD4 is a good example of this, not to mention the large majority of valve games being on consoles anyway.

We are all biased in our own little way, but the way I see it with the whole BF3/origin thing, its the no dedicated servers thing all over again... it'll be slow and gradual, but the way the industry is going we may as well be playing on a console in the future.

Also where do you see me saying EA is the best thing ever? This is not so much about supporting EA as supporting DICE who make quality games, also yes I think valve is very overrated.

As for EA being focused on money making, guess what thats every companies focus; I dont support their motives but thats what companies are designed to do. Valve is good as well and if you think for one second thats not their goal your naive. Valve is too comfortable right now, making money of steam and other people's hardwork; why would EA allow this. Maybe if steam had a major competitor to deal with Valve might actually start making some decent games instead of a 50$ portal 2 and a 50$ l4d2 (which generates peanuts compared to their steam revenue)
L4D1 and 2 code still has the split screen there and you can enable it thru the console line. With Two command lines. the command line still works too.

And you can set it up so the other person is using a gamepad,And it be in split screen. I did this many times with family members and yes it works online. Player2 would have which ever name you set for him in the command line.

First of all, CoD4 WAS a console port. One of the better ones, but a port nonetheless. The last good CoD multiplayer was 2 anyway. L4D1/L4D2/Portal 2, which are Valves most recent "mainstream" games, are all console oriented. Portal 2 was a straight up port.

Would you have said that back in 2007? I doubt you would've screamed console port like you are now... Seriously, its like any game that is on a console as well as the PC is a console port these days... its ridiculous.


Although I usually question the developers/publishers in matters such as this, this is one of those times when I question the PC gamers... calling COD4, or L4D/L4D2/portal 2 a console port is baseless and illogical, if anything they were ported the other way.

It's an absolute deal breaker for me, no exceptions. Not even if it were the best game in the world, and they paid me to play it.

I do not want this garbage on any of my systems. They may as well try to get me to keep a rancid turd on my kitchen table.
