Valve and Steam founder Gabe Newell recently did a Reddit AMA chat with fans and of course a little known game called Half Life came up, not to mention Portal, Half Life Movie, a New IP, and how he likes his steaks… medium rare, Gabe likes his steaks medium rare.
In regards to a question about Half Life 3, Gabe got a little cheeky with his answer saying that “we should never speak in threes” which isn’t a “no” so HALF LIFE THREE CONFIRMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He was also asked about Left 4 Dead 3 and Gabe said he liked telling branching narratives so given that the game is about 4 survivors probably means that if we got another L4D game that it might have a deeper narrative.
Also Gabe said that there was a new game coming from the Universe of Portal and Half Life, so again HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!!!!!!!!
Also Gabe was asked which was his favorite game between Portal and Half Life and many were surprised when he said Portal, but he explained. Gabe explained that because he was so heavily involved with the development of Half Life that all he sees when he plays are compromises and cuts he had to make to the game, where as he didn’t have that much to do in the making of the game so he can enjoy it.
