You really didn't read the message, did you ? It's a carefully worded message, and just a way to try to figure out what Valve's plans are. Everybody thinks they know that Valve is working on it, but what is keeping everybody intrigued is the fact they haven't said anything in years. Not so much of a problem when Half-Life was around because the story wasn't left there, waiting to continue, and Valve hadn't specifically said there would be a sequel, including a schedule, like they did for the episodes.
The message is not begging for anything, it's asking for better communication in a polite way. This is a game, don't you understand ? I'm talking about the message, not the game itself. Valve plays a game of mystery, gamers have every right to play the game of asking for more information. Valve is made up of intelligent people, they will figure out the best way to handle this part of the game. Why on earth shouldn't gamers write such a message to Valve ? This is not only about a game, it's also about business. If Valve wants good business in addition to making good games, they must know how to do both.Edited by tpi2007 - 1/18/12 at 5:14pm
