    Video games are just a meme anyway.
    What you described above and the millions of other frustrations you get when you're a gamer are not worth it.

    @hugh-mungus ??? Frustration? Ive never had any frustration because of games. DevRant is more frustrating for me sometimes.

    Video games as you mention is such a wife term that the few games you mean are not even 1% of all games.

    @Codex404
    i mean video games in particular, not games in general. So you're telling me you've never been frustrated with any games you played? No broken characters, no dynamics you didn't like, no patches that removed a part of the game you enjoyed, nobody ever annoyed you in multiplayer? That doesn't sound realistic to me.

    I can concede i might be more susceptible to these things but nobody is immune to frustration especially when they enjoy something.

    @hugh-mungus happens but that's rarely the case. Games should entertain ^^
    And they mostly do

    @BambuSource
    You're right.
    Although the way they entertain is what bothers me the most. Basically just relying on the player's dopamine addiction

    Valve is probably the best game company, in my opinion.

    @c3ypt1c was*

    @hugh-mungus uh there are very different games. That's like looking only at pop-music when judging about music

    @c3ypt1c it’s so you’d trade a 10 years overdue sequel to one of the most awesome game series in history for a bunch of hats for TF2 and new skins for CS:Go?

    @RantSomeWhere I'd trade it for literally milions of other games on sale within the next two weeks.

    @BambuSource it still is. They're currently still working on games and technology

    @c3ypt1c welp fair enough.

    @RantSomeWhere i agree though. I don't really like the skin situation.

    HL3 will surely be released on the near future.

    @GrogTheTroll after 11 years? I don’t think so

    @hugh-mungus I dont play multiplayer, I dont mind flying characters that much that im frustrated (Ubisoft). As long as I enjoy a game than I wont become frustrated. And yeah I did buy some games that were shitty but thats just me not researching enough, I think okay next time better and will continue.

    Dota 2, the lab, artifact, CS:GO, left for dead 1 and 2, alien swarm, portal 2, games published and developed by valve in the last decade.

    I wish valve worked on other games but they became one of the biggest distributors for games, I think if they didn't become that, we'd see more games, just like unreal created a game engine and making that their top priority, company priorities change.

    Also about games, I don't think all games rely on the addiction factor, for me that is just what I see for the majority mobile games or games in the realm of the pattern 3/flappy bird/angry bird genre. There are games like metal gear solid that have an amazing story and let you play as the main character, games like minecraft that let you create whatever world you want, games like sim city that let you build and take of a city.

    I can go on but I guess down the line this is just my opinion on games, I think they are pretty powerful.

    But Valve actually bought studios which made Counter Strike, Team Fortress, Portal, Left 4 Dead and if I’m not wrong also DOTA...

    @athlon I don't know about most, just Portal.

    And Dota was kind of a developer going in two directions, splitting up. To League of Legends and Dota 2. Dota 2 then was made by Valve. I dunno if they bought the developers
