Valve is awesome

I know I will sound like a total fanboy but I believe valve is the best thing that happened to the videogame industry in the past century.
First of all, the games, everyone knows them, most of us loves them no need to go in detail.
BUT these games became platforms to many mods that became, and still becoming great games – chivalry, day of defeat, Stanley parable, a massive list really.
But that’s just the beginning, their whole business model is suited to bring the best to the customers, no cheesy corporate shit that the others are doing.
Having constant sales on steam, helping indie games be more known, updates free of charge.
Their system is choke-full of player friendly features.
Such as the steam market that allows you to sell unwanted items FOR REAL MONEY.
Valve managed to create an amazing system, and still make huge profit.
Imagine managing your disc library without steam, having to minimize your window each time you want to chat with a friend, still having to use Games for windows Live…
At a time when the major game publishers flip the bird to their consumer base, it’s quite inspiring to see a company that embraces its fans.
Don’t you agree?

Too much proper grammar and usage of capitals.

I’m just really impressed with how much your grammar skills have improved. A word of advice, you don’t need to start a sentence with a conjunction like butt, those words are used for connecting two independent clauses or a dependent clause to another clause. If you start a sentence with a dependent clause you will need to use a comma.

So basically even with help from the spellchecker you managed to not actually have 100% grammar accuracy, gasp, shame on word.

Oh well, at least it clearly shows how good Valve is. :P

The bad thing about Valve is that they don’t know how to count to 3.
