HL is 16 years old. Why isn't Gearbox allowed to make their own HL game yet?! That would make the industry better!

It could star Mario and Sonic, too!

You joke, but if HL had entered the public domain, someone else may have picked up the mantle and provided us with another HL game. No one would make a HL game with Mario and Sonic b/c no one would buy it. Straw man argument.

It's the worst case scenario, but I don't see any good case scenarios. Do we really want Gearbox making a HL game?

Even if it was a good company making a HL game, wouldn't we rather they just make their own world and their own characters? Would HL have been as good if Valve just used Doom Guy?

China briefly had a creepy knock-off DisneyWorld. Is the world better if every supermarket has half-assed Mickeys walking around?
