Hey, remind me again what the wait in time between HL and HL2 was?
6 years you say?

Wow! And it's been 6 years since HL:E2?
Clearly Valve has changed and is no longer developing games!

So how many other games did Valve itself create between HL and HL2? And didn't Newell himself admit that HL2 was delayed completely out of proportion because he only cared about Steam? I fear things are repeating itself, but maybe Valve will indeed use HL3 to push the Steamboxes, so let's stop here, but take a look at this ;):

This whole "create itself" argument is so far beyond asinine. Are you saying Team Fortress 2 isn't created by Valve? That Robin Walker isn't a member of Valve? That only games created by original Valve employees are Valve games? That TF2 is an obvious evolution of TF1?

Find me the link where Newell says that HL2 was delayed solely due to Steam. There's plenty out there accusing him of lying about the delay, but hey, maybe all those articles about how much he sucked because HL2 took too long from announce to release are why no one ever mentions HL3 anymore.

Game fans tend to be the most entitled group of "fans" outside of 18 year old music fans, often with the same arguments (e.g., "they were better before they sold out" or "the first release was so much better" or "you don't actually like XYZ, you just say that to be cool"), with the exception that game fans tend to be middle aged men making the arguments 16 year old boys make about music.

Regardless, you're demonstrating such weird entitlement here. "Valve owes me real games they totally made themselves. None of this licensing the Q2 engine, using their code and making a game very similar to one id made, I want something wholly original otherwise it doesn't count!"
