Dude can make Half Life 3, Portal 3 and Left 4 Dead 3 out of his own pocket and his net worth would still be over $5Bn. And since they're a private company, they dont need to report shit to investors for making risky lootboxless, MT-less linear (singleplayer) games.

I cannot think of a single Valve game in past few years (2015-present) and know of nothing planned.  They are basically like Apple these days.

Is that money just from Valve? Seems kind of crazy if so, didn't realise Steam was THAT big!

Most of that money is likely in Valve stocks. Ie. let's say Valve is worth 10 billion, GabeN owns half of Valve so there's 5 Bn right there.

I realise that, but that's still a much bigger value than I would have expected from Valve. Wow!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

It is a lot, and it'll likely only grow. Steam is a gold mine.



Fuck him and fuck Steam. It's the worst thing that exists on PC and that includes, Windows, Origin and Uplay. And the main reason for that is that they rather collect money than spend a single cent on improving the platform. So fuck you for hording money you asshole.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Half Life 3 confirmed?



Damn and he hasn't even made Half Life 3 yet.
