Whatever Valve craps out
I will buy. I dont care if it's a monkey flinging poo, as long as i can afford it i will be supporting them. in 12 years they've never even slightly disappointed me with a release (tf2 hats, on the other hand...) and have my full, blind faith. any company that packages TF2, HL2, ep1, ep2, and Portal 1 into one box for normal MSRP (and that i bought on sale on launch day for $30) truly cares about their product and fans. they know that they are making shit tons of money because of quality, innovative, true pc games that customers love. when you look at the AAA devs/publishers, valve is in a league of their own. i wouldnt trust EA, zenimax, or actiblizz to do anything innovative in the PC world. valve is the only AAA developer that still kinda feels like an indie dev, and the only one putting out PC and console games where the PC version hasnt suffered a cataract. In fact valve still develops on and for the PC and then adapts/ports games to console, not the other way around.
of all the dev/pubs in the gaming market, valve is the only one i'd trust to create anything hardware-related besides contracting MADCATZ to slap a couple EA logos onto a console controller.
Well said. I used to feel the same about Blizzard, and gave them my blind faith.
Valve has always had it - especially back before even cs:source game out.... ahhh, Valve, I hope they keep it up & don't crap out. They've been one of my favorite sources for games for a long, long time..
