and instead bought mod teams out to do it for them
Well they were doing that long before Steam.
TFC, CS, DoD
I've yet to be corrected on this, but the last original IP created by Valve was Half-Life.
Everything else was a mod or another game they bought out. CS, DoD, Riccochet, Portal, L4D, DOTA...
Unless you could their original work with the playroom thing they released for the Vive... That was I suppose original. Other than that....
And for the guy who said that Steam was born *because* CS:Source was popular really needs to learn his history. I know we didn't all live through it, but their legal battle against Vivendi is why Steam exists, also set precedent to why uPlay, Origin, GoG, Epic store etc. all exist. It's quite fascinating.
Still makes me chuckle how people defend Steam to the death nowadays, as when You HAD to own an online-validation DRM store that no one had ever heard of to play the SINGLE PLAYER Half-Life 2.... people were fucking pissed.
