please dont let valve turn evil. not full evil. not yet
has valve done anything shitty yet b/c they seem to have a really solid track record
if i were to be really nitpicky it would be that their women character’s personalities are on the bland side esp in left 4 dead where zoe and rochelle just fill the void in the group as “the girl” (i like alyx vance a lot tho, i was lukewarm on her until episode 1+2 when she really started to stand out). chell is literally a blank slate a la gordon freeman so i can give her a pass on that.
but games are good???? fun games. i play them. play them a lot. videogames.
glados is one of my favorite female characters in videogames, honestly. loved her in portal 1, loved her even more in 2
If you want to get really technical, the douchiest thing they’ve done is make it impossible to file for a class-action lawsuit against them. But I don’t know why’d we do that in the first place, so, whatever.
