You simply hate Valve.
Anything associated with them you despise. You've bashed Half-Life 2 saying the game's nothing special.. I remember a long discussion about the facial expressions in the game and you refused to acknowledge there was anything great about them. You don't have to like the game, but there's obvious technical aspects to the game that are more advanced then in others. Doom 3's unified dynamic lighting and shadowing is impressive tech. F.E.A.R.'s close quarter AI is really good... these are things that stand out no matter wether you like the game or not. But no, you argued it out eventualy saying that Tron 2.0 did facial expressions better... and when people pointed you to the final chapter where one of the most stand-out examples of HL2's facial system is on display you wouldn't play it, even though at the time you had access to the game.
Sin's moved to the source engine and is being released on steam? Well you made sure to bash that game, you even proceeded to insult one of the developers when he posted here.
nin showed you flaming on Gearbox'es Halo forums. Where you there because Gearbox did the Half-Life expansions?
Rational arguments are always bent to a certain angle to make sure you punctuate whatever flaws you come up with, which tend to be simply your opinions. Alot of what you harp on isn't a problem to the rest of us, or we don't see it in the same light as you because there's no blind hatred.
That's you Smiley.
But keep fighting your fight. Just more hot air from a Monolith fanboy. I'm calling you that based on your own definitions of what makes up a Valve lacky. You defenitly are a fan of that company. Nothing wrong with that, but it's nothing but hypocritical to go after people who simply enjoy Valve's games and take an interest in them.
Of course we're not you, Monolith is great and Valve is a horrible company that doesn't deserve it's success. This is true because you can automaticly determine what's right or wrong based on your limited knowledge and, more importantly, your opinion of any given circumstance. Wish I could be soo enlightened.. heck someone like that could become president of the United States.
