Just wish valve will produce more games! It's been riding half-live and CS for 40 years it seems :(
They should compete head to head with mmorpg's and strategy games to kick some of the other nasty companies out there in the face.
Was hoping to see Bungie in that list somewhere xD
So, we basically need more privately-owned developers/publishers and less of that publicly-traded stuff. Seems about right. Anytime you have to answer to thousands of shareholders to realize a creative vision, far too many sacrifices are made, including developer livelihood. And the proof is in the pudding: Blizzard and Bioware in decline with hefty reputation hits, and Valve gaining loyal customers every day.
You nailed it with the defensive bit. The companies get scared of their fans, and prioritize protecting themselves over providing what their customers want. This leads to things that turn their customer base away, doing the damage they were afraid of in the first place....
