I think they should put aftermath off. They really need to rework the crap out of their current products before releasing anything else. Especially HL2DM and HL2, and then the source engine in general as it has bugs up the ass.

Agreed... would be better to fix these bugs, rather than "hurry" (we all know Valve's "hurrying" pace) Aftermath and then it has the same issues that could have been fixed.

LOL yeah, it takes them a year to rush an early release

It then took 5 years for them to finally fix all of the remaining major bugs in HL1 (especially the sound drop bug.)

I hope we don't have another 4 years to wait before the sound stutter bug is fixed.

Everyone complains about how long it takes them to put out there products and how many bugs there are in the engine. Would you have rather them rushed hl2 made it in year or less and had "steam"ing pile of crap while it has bugs (no that e had any problem myself other than one bad update that they did fix) Hl2 ran perfectly and was definetly imo the best game ever so have patience.

Quality V. Time :I choose qaulity

I choose quality as well. However, valve not only takes a long ass time, but they take a long ass time to release something that is incomplete. And then after they release it, they take a long ass time to finish it.

What do you mean by incomplete are you refering to the bugs in source or steam or both? I will addmit there are problems i have not experinced one that has not been encountered in other games and while steam is a pile of sh!t at least it gets updated regulary

I've never experienced any bug that I can think of in HL2. And I've played throught it all twice. Steam rarely causes any problems either. Both products feels very polished and complete to me.

I dont know why people keep bitching about Valve and their "poor, incomplete, buggy games and that POS Steam". Isnt it easier to just not buy their games, not install Steam, and go play/do something else that doesnt make your life such a royal pain..?
