11. Re: Valve Denies Nexon Rumor Sep 29, 2012, 09:28 jdwohlever
I'm so glad to hear this.

I'll freely admit before I read Valve/Chet/Gabe's thoughts on this
I was sweating it. I have thousands of dollars invested in Steam
that if Valve changed hands it would affect me just as much as it
would affect a shareholder, maybe more so as I might have more
invested in Valve than your average shareholder.

After reading the article I have a different understanding of how Valve's management feels.

For those who still have doubts, I think what they might not be
understanding is that Valve/Steam is Gabe's baby/child/creation.
And no matter how much money a person offered for your child,
it would never be enough.
The only way I think Gabe would ever consider selling Valve is the
same way a parent would consider putting their child up for adoption
and that would be when the parent Gabe) felt that someone else could
do better for Valve than they can.
Since Valve is not only doing "fine" under Gabe & Co., but it's
flourishing and is the pioneer in gaming going purely digital.

Being both a parent and a mod developer who has been approached
before into selling my freeware work, I think I know exactly what
Chet/Gabe is trying to say and I have a much higher degree of respect
and admiration for Valve than I did before.
