Your rationale for this big pile of urine called steam doesn't quite make sense - unless you can purchase HL2 for $12 dollars on steam, thereby QUADRUPLING valve's profit on each sale --- Wait - how much is HL2 on steam?

Do you see the error of your ways now, young man?

I can guess that only a small fraction of those caught will pony up 50.00 for this game. However, with all of the advertising and cross-promotions, revenue will not be a problem for valve. Even if they spent '$40 million' on development- yea right.

Steam is a big pile of urine and I hope the next game that valve does involves AI code instead of scripting another rail-shooter.

HL2 is a great experience, but the heavy scripting kills the potential of exploring such a great environment. If you walk the wrong way and miss a trigger, the immersiveness is easily shattered.

This could give a new perspective on the use of Bullet Time made famous by games like Max Payne and the Matrix.

Now we have Magic Bullets*, capable of turning mid-flight several times and knocking out all your foes with one shot!

The game is awesome! A further improvement on the immersiveness of city-building games. 3D is used to great effect and provides fluid, quick response.

This is an amazing game with plenty of depth and requires you to pay attention to your city even in the later stages of advanced development, unlike previous versions that would run on auto-pilot once a certain size was reached.

STEAM IS A BIG PILE OF URINE!

How about this scenario? Buy game. Install and play.

If you as a consumer want to be treated like shit that is your problem, but this authentication torture has prevented this consumer from purchasing any Valve/Steam releated material.

It was bad enough for the industry to train us like dogs to fetch each CD every time we wanted to play a game. What's next? Call them on the phone and beg them to play for a few minutes? What happens if the company no longer runs the authentication server? Can I not reinstall and play the game?

I will not be trained like a turd from this big pile of urine called Steam and the business practices of Valve.

As proven in past posts, STEAM is a big pile of URINE!

HL2, while certainly better than Doom3 by anyones guess, is not the holy grail of gaming, but rather another set of cleveryly scripted interactions based firmly in FPS conventions.

Getting permission from Mommy Valve via an internet connection to play a single player game is a step backward in customer relations. First game companies try to force their users to act like dogs and fetch their CDs, now they try to force us to call Mommy when we want to play.

Eat your own URINE valve!

It should be called 'The making of a pile of shit' book. With chapters such as 'Why bother with AI coding when you can rely on the monster closet approach' and 'gameplay takes a back seat to hype'

pure crapware.

Looking forward to Operation Flashpoint 2. I don't think they will consolize it and ruin it, but who knows.

How dare you compare Doom3 to SystemShock2!!! That's like comparing a dried turd to a brick of gold! Doom3 is that turd - twisted and petrified into a pile of shit 100 turds high. Puke! Carmack stick to rockets please!!!

94% for doom3? I think that's a situation where the game is not worthy of the score. In other words, the low 70's would have been more accurate in terms of gameplay.

Bashing is warranted in this case given the fact that gameplay is non-existant and the engine is more of a tech-demo than anything else.

This game also puts the nail in the coffin for SINGLE PLAYER GAMES MADE BY ID!!! They are still in the Kommander Keen days of gameplay. HAS CARMACK even played of the modern [1999 and above] games to see how far the single-player experience has progressed.

If you look at Doom3, the answer is APPARENTLY NOT!!!

It's also funny to see the game media fawn over this shriveled turd of a game!
