Valve is really getting the community involved

I think this is a great idea. Buying games in Alpha and letting the devs know the problems, the changes they'd like and it helps build the games community very early on meaning the community feels apart of the development process.

It worked wonders for Minecraft and DayZ.

I thought we were doing that already, the way so many games release these days...

I hope we get to see Source 2 not too long from now, even if it's just to show off what it can do. Seeing's as it's been in development since late 2010 i'm guessing they have done a lot on it in that time. No idea how long it takes to fully complete though, HL1 to HL2 was 6 years including time it takes to make the game.. Hmm

But we already beta test full games on release , AC3 for example.

I hope is test the game before you buy but I do want to point out what kind of games are these.
