All they know how to do is first-person perspective games for the most part. Gabe Newell would rather develop for an outdated platform than actually learn how to develop for the PS3 as well. And they take like 8 years to release new games.

Disagree completely, Take it from someone who was actually gaming when Valve entered the gaming market. Half-Life innovated the FPS genre with intelligent level design and was one of the first FPS to use interactive events. Something that every FPS seems to use today.

Half-Life 2 continued to innovate the FPS with creative weaponry (gravity gun) and intelligent story telling that actually made you care what happened.

Valve deserves the praise it has in the video game world.
