I'm sure a lot of you feel the same ever since Valve adapted this stupid idea that games are a service. It all started with making Episodes for Half-Life 2. What happens if you release a bunch of sequels for a game once a year? They move an inch forward in terms of technology, story, and everything else. Look at the difference between Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2 Episode 2. People were losing their shit over Half-Life 2. It was a HUGE step forward from Half-Life 1. Episode 2 was just the story moving forward. Nowhere NEAR the excitement for gamers as HL2. And now for the new model valve has for their games. 1. They have to be multiplayer 2. They have to be cheap or F2P 3. They have to use sub-par graphics so EVERYONE can run them 4. They have to have cosmetic items that you can purchase Valve has moved from making things like Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, and exciting GAMES, to stupid shit. SteamOS? Steam Box? No one who is a PC gaming enthusiast buys pre-built computers unless you're ignorant. CS:GO DLC (Operations)? Uninteresting. All they do is just update their games now. That's it. CS:GO is fun, TF2 is fun, DotA2 is fun, but Valve does nothing exciting or daring anymore. They're just a comfortable business making money. That's the reality of it all. I mean, compare the reveal of Source to Source 2. This to This https://www.dota2.com/reborn/part1/ It's ****ing pathetic. Valve is being replaced by Bethesda IMO in terms of making interesting, fun games.
