Re: Valve employees playing Valve games - This is the first time I have ever seen any game company even address the issue of employees playing their games. Over the years of playing online games, I have seen over and over game employees exploiting their status and access to various in game controls, like bans, and yet after researching it, there does not seem to be a single game company with any official policy regarding employees behavior when playing any game they publish. I hope this is a start and we see more in the future.
