The list, which you can check out here, features a number of Valve-developed titles – Left 4 Dead 2 at #22, Team Fortress 2 at #12, Counter-Strike at #8, Portal 2 at #5, and, of course, HL2 at #1. The list isn’t that bad, but there is of course, one glaring issue. No, it’s not the fact that Ricochet is not present on the list. When “Ricochet: The Jump Pad Menace” comes out, they’ll all be sorry.
It’s the fact that Deus Ex got fourth place. Fourth place. They don’t even give medals for fourth place, and you expect us to believe you’d give no medal to Deus Ex? It’s Deus Ex!
Okay, okay. No more ranting. But hey, another win for us Valve fans! I sure hope Valve realizes what kind of expectations they have to live up to with the next Half-Life. Remember how their main design goal for HL2 was to create the best PC game of all time? I sure hope they’re aiming for that one again. I’d add “if not more”, but it’s hard to aim even higher than that.
