Exclusive Gabe Newell Interview

In Rock, Paper, Shotgun's exclusive conversation with Gabe Newell, they discuss the nature of Valve as a company - its ethos and potential, the real reason Gabe hired the Portal team, the vision for Steam, and indeed all online distribution, have every game ever available to download, Gabe's beginnings with id, and how Valve was very nearly called Rhino Scar.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun: And you expect more old games to show up?

Gabe Newell: Oh yeah, I expect we'll go back in time and eventually pretty much every game that's ever been available will be on there 24/7.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun: Old LucasArts games?

Gabe Newell: Sure, those are some great games. I mean there are some real problems, where the waters are muddied and companies have gone out of business. That makes things difficult.

So this is what it has come to people hating a person because he bashed their console of choice. Wow you guys are pathetic.


No, this guy bash EVERYBODY's consoles... And if you have a old PC that can't run some new games on it, he'll probably bash your PC too.

That guy must have some serious Health Issues.....

...... What year was it when he last was able to see his feet i wonder.

Not only that but he really needs to work on something OTHER than a Half Life related game, Talk about flogging a dead horse. Gabe you need to get yourself sorted, being that big isn`t good, otherwise the only game you will be making is `After-Life Featuring Gabe Newell`

Granted Valve has `contributed` to the First Person Genre, but Valve took the lead off all the other companies that released FPS Prior, Valve just refined it...

Halflife 2 came out 3 years ago on PC. Something Original would be good. Thats all i`m saying.
