What is Steam Greenlight?

Steam Greenlight is a new system that enlists the community's help in picking some of the next games to be released on Steam. Developers post information, screenshots, and videos for their game and seek a critical mass of community support in order to get selected for distribution. Steam Greenlight also helps developers get feedback from potential customers and start creating an active community around their game as early in the development process as they like.

Maybe not a bad idea, but extra time wasted not developing HL3.

Don't worry rufee. There's no more than 10 people truly involved in HL3 among dozen fatfucks at Valve anyway.

THE FUTURE OF GAMING IS STEAM, A MONOCHROMATIC CONTENT DELIVERY PLATFORM. IT IS NOT SOME GUY AND HIS PSEUDO GIRLFRIEND TREKKING ACROSS SOME FROZEN TUNDRA SEARCHING FOR A NICE BOAT. YOU KNOW. I KNOW. GABE KNOWS. WE ALL KNOW.

That's one of the most ridiculous things I've heard in a while.

If HL3 is using some modified version of the source engine, most of the programming work is done already. Most of the tools and functionality required exists already. The game is most likely stuck in artist/design land. Even if Greenlight's development diverted attention from HL3 it serves us way better than HL3 ever will. We will get more games, as valve no longer has to accept games manually. Even more than that we will get more 'cheap' games because this system will push more indie titles onto steam.

It could also push shitty games onto steam if there isn't some secondary approving or denying process. I look forward to seeing how it works.

This will have to be looked over by valve anyway, since they own steam they have the final word on what makes on it and what doesn't whether the community likes it or not.

And about that HL3, how about CS:GO and Dota 2 ? Probably most of their artists are working on those.
