It's funny because people are still in denial and beleive Valve will announce HL3 through some ARG.
This is what happens when you bash games, and yet, buy gun skins for a shitty multiplayer game, you send a message.
Why waste resources making games when you can spend a day making a fancy hat or a gun skin and have thousands upon thousands of people eat the shit up like it's some type of iOS game?

But they don't do that, community does
Community makes skins for Doto2/CSGO/TF2
Community makes maps for TF2
Community makes operation maps in CS
Community makes additional campaigns in L4D
No, it wont be the most sold game of all time, it'll have a hard time eclipsing things like GTAV and such.
Would it sell tons, sure, but there is no real investment in it for them, same as Konami. They get more money from random ass microtransactions than they do actual game sales anymore.
Besides tons of games are expected that we'll never see. It's a sad truth, but one we must live with. Besides do you really trust current Valve to make HL3 good? Look at them try to sweep their recent shit under the rug and even try to avoid EU Law by going back to US servers and shit, sure it makes games cheaper for the EU, but it absolves them of any wrong doing there in the end.
Valve is the same as Konami, they're not a game developing company anymore, it's more about investors and how to make the quickest buck of idiots who buy anything.
>it's more about investors
Valve is not a public company, they never did IPO for this very reason, and I honestly never heard of any other investors
>VALVE DINDU NUFFIN WRONG, THEY NEVER MAKE SKINS OR HATS
Hold on, autist, I've never said anything of sorts
>It can be the most sold game of all time if they want to.
My fucking sides, nobody gives a shit about Half Life these days. It's only a vocal minority and even then HL1/2 were never the top seller. Fucking Call of Duty Rehash #47 would sell better than it and by a good margin.
>writing for Valve
The last 9 years must have sucked, considering they haven't made anything with any semblance of a story since HL2:E2.
Tiny little flavor text for Dota2 heroes doesn't count.
Occasionally during big updates or when they 5 millions on streatch goals. Most of the shit is UGC
half life 3, never ever now. Thanks for the ride Valve.
A long, long time ago
I can still remember how the G-man used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could avenge Eli Vance
And maybe look for Barney for a while
But January made me shiver
When on the forums I did hither
Bad news on the ol' sub
I couldn't take one more snub
I can't remember if I cried
When Valve ditched us to work on Vive
But something touched me deep inside
The day the fanbase died
>already wrote HL3
>can finally leave
don't worry guys, now that the story is done, they can focus on the core gameplay
Valve forgot about us a long time ago
Volvo has absolutely no need to make vidya ever again, and they just buy dev teams who make games to turn them into F2P hat sales.
And the community makes those hats that they sell back to them!
Why mess with the superior sales model, homie.
>Implying Valve made games to begin with
Literally remakes of mods and their only original game is essentially a Quake mod.
