People were idiots to put Valve in such high esteem. They were always a company trying to make money, all companies start with innovation but once they start getting more investors and more money they start playing it safe and turn into another group of corporate bastards.

No, you 'tards. The story was never the point in any of the Half-Lifes. It's clearly just a paper-thin thrown-together excuse for having a shooter game. Half-Life 2 has good WRITING, perhaps even EXCELLENT writing, some of the best in vidya, and they've made an extremely memorable, likable and relatable characters. But the actual STORY of the franchise is a shallow heap of disjointed plotpoints strung together with no real purpose besides "we want the player to do X now".
Why? Do you actually think Valve knows who the hell the Gman is, or they have an actual ending for this franchise in a drawer somewhere? They've been flying by the seat of their pants for the entire decade they've been actually developing these games.

Oh yes, don't get me wrong, I love Half-Life. They're amazing games and the atmosphere, characters and careful worldbuilding alone are some of the best vidya has to offer. They also have masterfully integrate the story with the gameplay. My problem is with the idiots who insist on saying Half-Life has a "good story" when that's blatantly false. It's by no means bad, but it's kept minimally functional - an excuse to get the player from point A to point B. A very convincing excuse, but an excuse nonetheless.

It is clear that people are using the world “story” to mean “tone, writing, characterization” rather than “narrative” a lot. That’s probably where the confusion lies.

It did well indeed but his point on good game being swamped by the sheer amount of garbage around it means that unless you’re putting yourself out there as a dev to spread the word or even get lucky and become viral. AHiT had to contend with the “SHAD MAN” shitposts and the comparisons to Yooka Laylee since they’re both Kickstarters that wanted to invoke the spirit of old school platformers (which sets off all the flags after what happened with Yooka Laylee and MN9) so it was nice to see it finally come out and see a lot of people in the community praising it.

To say nothing of the fact that his understanding of video games as an art form is the same backwards-ass Frankensteinian tripe that has plagued the non-Japanese sector of it for decades. Just look at his praise for walking simulators and disdain for any actual fucking video GAME with deeper interactivity and challenge than fucking Batman Arkham.

Sure, there are people who want to make good games but they need to make money with it too.That's why brand loyalty became a thing, you knew that this company made some quality shit.

They've been publishing games for a long time.
You faggots make it sound like it's easy shit because they get a cut but they're actually busy.
They've been annoyed with MS at least since Windows 8 and are trying to make Linux a viable option for gaming, just recently they hired another dev for linux drivers.

Romero pushed the designer-centered development process too far, and failed hard. Companies as a result took all the power away from "star" designers, resulting in games without vision or passion.

That literally doesn't mean anything. Most content creators, if you go back to 2014, are making "homophobic" and rape jokes pretty consistantly.

Do not rewrite history. Women were frequently told to shut the fuck up about rape. Even the police. I literally saw a cop in front of others spin a beer bottle around. He said "try and penetrate this bottle, it keeps moving, how could you?"
