I was never inclined to prefer Valve over any other developer, I just think people are judging this a little rashly. What else do you propose they could've done differently?

I believe that the problem is that the "challenge" was a false lead to make people believe that the game would be released earlier progressively, even if it wasn't fully completely. In other words - the more people contributed: the earlier it would come out. It turns out, this isn't all exactly true. All that effort - there's about 80% completion, and all we get is maybe an hour earlier release than what it should be.

I don't agree with you on the feasibility of the game being released earlier like I said in a previous post, but I do agree that people shouldn't feel so cheated in the first place.

I only bought three of those games: Super Meat Boy, Amnesia and Killing Floor, because I already wanted them. All of those games were, and still are, on sale, so it's a good deal, if you really want to play them.

I didn't want to play the other games (which doesn't mean I won't buy some of them in the future), so I didn't buy them.

I'm not going to be "forced into playing a game". I read the game descriptions, and I wouldn't buy a game that didn't appeal to me. Valve's initiative gave me the opportunity to consider buying some of those games, which I otherwise wouldn't.

I hope other people only bought games they liked. If they didn't, well, in that case their fury is understandable.

At what point during the challenge do they decide they're going to release it earlier for that platform? Given the entire reason for the challenge existing is that if completed, it releases earlier. I was talking specifically about the challenge, since you seem heart-set on changing some part of it I assumed you'd have a suitable alternative.

EDIT - This will probably never end. We have different opinions. I agree to disagree.

That's part of the appeal. Most people beat it in under 2 hours. It's fun, it's short, and it ties in to Portal 2 much more than a stupid sack. Plus, they added that bit at the end that connects P1 to the comic. (Which I just found out about )

I agree with this completely. As I stated hours and pages ago, it wouldn't have mattered with 1 million people hit up each game one at at time, this was always going to be released on their time. Oh well, Portal 2 soon!

So what you're implying is they moved the console release back to midnight because it just so happens that we'll be completing our challenge at that time?

Sure, we'll go with that too.
