y would anyone ever complain about valve there are only 3 developers i would blindly buy games from, blizzard, infinity ward, and valve because i have never heard of any of those companies making a bad game. I still play lost vikings and wasnt that on the snes?

I have nooooo idea where you got the idea they only have 3 developers from. http://www.valvesoftware.com/company/people.html seems to disagree with you.

I would be wary of blizzard fatbird, they're owned by Activision; and Infinity Ward has something like a third of the people who actually worked on CoD/MW are actually left within the company, most of them being underlings, not 'management'. (As well as still being under Activision)

I doubt they're even working on Episode 3. Just sitting there at the writing board trying to come up with a good way to end it, and how to explain things like the G-Man without making the player feel punk'd by a half-assed revelation.

Lack of forward planning never ends well. Would explain a few things, anyways.

Vivendi owns 51% of the shares for Activision Blizzard. Vivendi being to Blizzard as Infinity Ward was/is to Activision. However, unlike Valve, Blizzard is not an independent developer. They bend to the quims and quams of their publishers, Activision and Vivendi like most other developers. And both Activision and Vivendi don't give a rat's ass about making a quality game. They will fund any project that will profit substantially.

It's called a merger.

And as I understand it, Blizzard operates autonomously.

Yes, I'm pretty sure they have their own division and operate this way. In a rare act of brilliance and foresight on the part of the management, they realised that a company with the most profitable games of all time might know how to make a good game.

All I know about Valve is that Gabe Newell is extremely overweight...he might soon have died from cardiovascular diseases unless he takes some diets or preventative measures!!!!!!!!!!
