It was far too many similarities for me. DA 2's story was mountains better and didn't contain that black-or-white, good-or-evil simplicity.

Amen.

Half Life and Half Life 2 with the episodes are the only games they actually made. The rest are just glorified mods.

Portal 2 might break that ice, but only time can tell.

Wait, People recognize Valve as the L4D firm more than the Half Life one? Really? That's sad. L4D is fun, it's popular, it's high quality. It's a great Valve game, but it's a far cry from the legend that is Half Life.
I'd rather them be called the "Ricochet" firm than the Left 4 Dead firm.

I have a lot of respect for Valve. Other gaming developers could learn from them.

I have been waiting for Episode 3 far too long. Sadly, it will probably be too short like their other ones...
They're doing SOMETHING right, considering they didn't Eff that up like most Publishers/Devs do.

Don't forget about CD Projekt and Egosoft. Those two companies blow me away with their stances on DRM. I will always buy their games. Besides the Witcher and the X series are simply two of the best series ever made.

How did everyone miss that!!! <3 Valve, Bioware and Blizzard.

Valve = Down to earth!
Bioware = EPIC games! (We can ignore DA2, everyone makes mistakes)
Blizzard = Takes forever to release something but their games are worse then crack!

To be quite honest I always felt that DA was never what it could have been. I felt DA2 was an improvement overall while the storyline could have been implemented way better. Mass Effect is truly their gem and in many ways got the feeling that DA was a "testing ground" for things they want to do with the upcomming ME title.
