They needed to hire people for DOTA2. Half-life ? What is that? Steam and DOTA2 is a lot more important. You should focus on what is bringing in revenue and retire the old software.
That's the most ridiculous thing I've read today.
Half-Life IS Valve. You mention Half-Life, everyone on the planet whos a gamer knows what it is. The name recognition of HL alone is worth more than DOTA2 and 95% of their games. And Half-Life isn't "old software" seeing as how HL2 came out in maybe 2005? There are plenty of games out there that see very long development cycles.
You should, however, just let the grown ups talk. ONLY post to this forum if and when you start making some sense.
