The width of the gap between devs and consumers never really seizes to amaze me.

You know a statement is pure truth when it starts with "You only need..."

Cmon guys making games is easy what are you on about. Apart from the millions of pounds/dollars, man hours, staff, resources, years of your life, tears and sweat. Fucking game devs man. What do we know.

Valve hasn't been relevant since 2003 beyond continuing to operate Steam (which is basically a different company by this point). Discuss.

Portal 1/2, Left 4 Dead 2, CSGO, Dota 2. Excellent games.

csgo and dota 2 being two of the most popular competitive games in the world, and I guess the vr bit is just a small side project too

You could argue that Valve developed none of those games bar TF2.

Portal 1 was based on an indie game, built from the ground up by Valve. Portal 2... really, we're going to claim Valve didn't make that? Left 4 Dead 1 was based on a CS mod, built from the ground up by Valve. Left 4 Dead 2, totally made by Valve. or not, somehow, by rationale I don't understand. CS:GO was developed by Hidden Path in the very early days, with Valve supervision then handed over to Valve completely. Dota 2 was built from scratch (then rebuilt totally) by Valve. 

I get that many people want Valve to make more games, especially Half-Life 3, but to say they don't make games is like an ex-girlfriend you dated for years claiming you never dated. And to claim they're "not relevant" is just... I guess people haven't heard of Dota2, or CS, or have ever used a Vive. Let's stop being babies just because daddy won't give us our shiny toy.

Portal was valve hiring the team behind it. l4d Turtle Rock, another hired team. Vavle sees something they like hire the team and loom in the background. They ain't done anything since TF2.
