Same here, thanks to Valve I got into PC gaming.

Just come out and say it so you don't have to post any more comments about your opinion on Valve and their games. smile.gif

LOL just because I do not worship them on these forums and point out the hypocrisy, double standards and blatent valve fanboyism does not mean I hate them. While I may not like most of their games, I do like portal and had some fun with alien swarm, I also have a huge library of steam games; valve has made their fair share of money of me and they will in the future, if I hated them I would want nothing to do with them. Even if I did hate them and admitted to it, why would I stop posting my opinion on valve games? Do the rampant EA, Ubi, Activision etc haters stop posting their opinions on every one of their games?

I agree with every word.

I barely play Valve games, not my style of fun, but there's something for everyone.

Perhaps but even when someone pointed out that they could possibly be overhauling the source engine to update it to current graphics standards, you still just reverted back to how the source engine looked terrible. It seems like you have your fingers in your ears going "LA LA LA LA LA LA NOT LISTENING LA LA LA LA"

Of course who knows what they are doing frankly I don't care, as long as they keep doing stuff I'm happy.

You guys really underestimate how much you can keep on building on a engine to make it look good.
I think source games look terrible compared to most PC games and even some console game.

No that actually does make sense. My gut feeling though is that part of the reason the project has taken so long is because the scope of it has also changed. I would want episode 3 first if I thought there was any chance valve would get Half-Life 3 out the door faster after that but I think it'd be another four years.
At this point I want as much Half-Life as possible. If you really think about it most of the questions about the world are still unanswered. I want to know who the G-Man is. I want to know how aperture science fits into the whole big picture. I want to explore the borealis. etc etc. I still think they have a lot of stuff to do.

Yeah I know what you mean. I really would love a full new Half-Life title but my senses say they wouldn't just skip Episode 3 for the reasons I mentioned before. I gotta say, if they go for Half-Life 3 I would like to see it involve more Xen aliens again and involve more hazards and stuff like Half-Life 1. That's the stuff that really drew me in and I still enjoy Half-Life 1 far more than Half-Life 2. They're all incredible games though.

Not all of us 'worship' Valve. I think anyone in their right mind would prefer no client over any. But that isn't to say that Valve provides an excellent format for what they do, in contrast to all of the other clients available.

But you come off as a Valve hater, just as Grizzle Boy comes off as a staunch EA publicist. It's ok - it's just that, why tout the wagon you're on in some seemingly tit-for-tat way against those whom you claim biased of double standards? Because it seems like you're just jumping on the wagon with the least amount of cowboys. That's all it seems to me...

Anyways.... I'm not taking a side so much as pointing out what it seems I'm reading.

Oh and the EA and Activision people should also come out and say the same I requested you do. thumb.gif Saves a lot of posts.

Sausageson only played the Half-Life games for the graphics. Sluggish netcode, mod-ability, or other bugs do not matter as much as long as the graphics are shiny likely for him. Most of his complaints are on the graphics of Source titles.
