Default Re: Garry's Mod 10 on Steam today

dude. you realize the goal of ever company is to make profit, right? "Oh hey, wait -- guys, wait. we've made enough money. let's give things away for free!!!!!!!!!"

By the way, Valve needs money to keep the Steam servers running. Those games you listed, The Ship,Dark Messiah: Might and Magic, and most games that you can buy on Steam that aren't, say... Half Life, Counter Strike, Day of Defeat, etc. related, aren't developed by Valve. Most of the profit goes out to the developers of those individual games, while Valve gets a cut of it for distributing the game and keeping it on their servers.

Same thing applies to Garry (and his team. I think he has a team.).
