Never bought Black Ops 2, never will after giving in and grabbing MW3 which I played for about 20 mins.
Now back on topic
Valve has released HL1 -> HL2 totally different experience. New engine Well after years I sure would hope so.....
You continue to say the same thing from there on. Truth is CS franchises are all the freakin same nothing has changed other than the engine from the first one to the second one, and then game mechanics from the CSS to CSGO. Which if you ask a lot of old CS players is not a good thing. lol
CSGO was a bit of a joke IMO, All the main game mechanics changed in CS:S from CS so I'm not really sure what you are talking about here? So it provides a different experience from the first, hense all the hardcore players stayed with OG CS for the longest time.
If you think L4D and L$D2 where totally different you need to get your eyes checked. That is so far beyond the same game its not funny. They charged the 60 dollar premium used the exact same engine sounds and textures, and people praise it while criticizing COD. Hypocrite much?
Your reading comprehension seems to be lacking here. Try re-reading my post.
I stated that the L4D series totally different from their other ip's SANS L4D2 which means Without L4D2 which was in fact a $60 DLC
Portal was a great leap forward Ill give you that. And don't get me wrong I am a huge valve fan, but I call it how it is. Valve gets cut way to much slack just because they where the innovators from way back. Nothing wrong with calling valve out. People say COD fans are sheep, I feel the exact same way about valve fans who just give them passes because they are valve. Seems to be a double standard.
Truth, but honestly most of the valve game "re-iterations" weren't full price the CS "updates" were anywhere from $10-15
The only exception is L4D2 which is what I stated multiple times in my previous post.
Granted I think they are becoming complacent. I would really only like to see a few things from them at this point.
NEW AAA IP, HL3, Portal 3. aaaand a new engine. But we will probably have reached Entropy in the Universe
