At least consider working on stuff that your customers want, instead of stuff thats interesting to you.

You know, Dev, you're right. Developers should do what customers want, not what's interesting to them. After all, doing what customers want gave us a billion soulless Call of Duties, right?

And isn't that what "marketing suits" demand, that studios make artistic concessions and work not on what they'd enjoy but what customers want and therefore will sell? Customers want goofy sidekicks, quick, someone bring back Superfly Johnson!

I was referring to valve doing PC games such as they have in the past, such as more portal or ep3. Contrasting to valves recent statements that they are going into 3 other markets: mobile, social, and "entertainment as a service", which is obviously going to lead to a loss of focus on PC games.

Nowhere was I saying I wanted them to churn out crappy FPS clones.
