No... problem with your theory is that those games are usually HYPED to crap... DOD Source looks like it will be extremely horrible... I would say Valves "DNF" is TF2... been waiting since the release of the ORIGINAL Half Life for that one :\.

This is true, but I think Stalker is a bad example. Its on GAME's preorder section which is more then can be said for DNF.

Yeah, that was even supposed to be one of the hilights of the original half life. They were hyping TF2 as early as 1997 AFAIK. Many people actually bought HL1 just because they believed they were going to get TF2 with it.

Then just a few months after HL1 was released, they announced that it would be a separate game that you have to pay extra for. Sounds kinda similar with what they are planning with DOD:S if you think about it.

TF2 actually made it as far as if not further than DOD:S already has by the way. They had trailers, screenshots, demos at the trade fairs, numerous press releases telling how great it would be, and even a definite release date set. I am pretty certain that amazon was even taking pre-orders (they have a TF2 product listing still btw) and prima even wrote a strategy guide for it...then suddenly you hear nothing about it at all. DOD:S could very well end up taking that same route; with the leaky vaporware valve its entirely possible.

On that same note, it's also possible that the "lost coast" could just end up turning into something stupid where they promise you hella improved graphics and deliver nothing but a re-hash of the engine, a la CS:CZ (which itself was delayed two years from its original "definitive" release date IIRC.)

EDIT: In fact, its interesting to note that TF2 first appeared on amazon.com in 1996, though I am not sure how:

Exactly. If DoD's visuals still resemble the quality of the last official screenshots when its released, Valve should keep the dang thing. IMO they have their hands in too many pots: HL2 updates, CS:S updates, Expansion, Lost Coast level, DoD and has trouble showing they're making progress on anything. They need to do what Epic did and hire someone to better manage their development focus.

This is true. TF2 is the second most played mod that came from HL. I have been waiting for it since it was first annuced. WE all saw the movied for it and then *poof* Bit Boys moved in and this project when Area 51. It is some where out there with D.B. Cooper. Truely a pathetic company they are. (Yoda speek)

I believe fully that TF2 will never see the light of day, just like DNF. I couldn't care less about DoD, never played the original and I'm not going to play the new one.

I think DNF will eventually come out... maybe not in our lifetimes but I feel it will.

TF2 however... I used to be SOOOO freaking hyped for that game and was "OMGZ" every screenshot I saw. Now here we are basically a decade later and I would like to play it... but know I never will :\.
