The video game developer behind the following IPs: Half-Life, Counter-Strike, Portal, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, in addition to several entertaining Source games. One of the few companies that hasn't lost its soul over the years and hasn't (significantly) declined in quality. That isn't to say they haven't done a few rather unpopular things, but at the same time we can't help but love them.
So earlier today; a friend of mine was bitching about Steam being required for this game he bought, how TF2 has been a failure since it went F2P, and how frustrated he was that CS:GO and DOTA 2 were being developed while there was still no word on Episode 3/Half-Life 3. Then he started playing his new copy of Portal 2, and said "I love you Valve. Will you marry me, Gabe Newell?"
