Valve vs. Bethesda - Half-Likes #0

Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/valvenewsnetwork Watch my Streams : http://www.twitch.tv/valvenewsnetwork Steam Group : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/VNN Today on Valve News Network, I start off a series of videos I've wanted to create for a long time, called Half-Likes. Half-Likes aims to show Half-Life fans games that may scratch that itch because of their similarities, connections or inspirations from the Half-Life series, regardless of where Half-Life 3 is. In this first "prequel" episode, we take a look at the differences between Bethesda-Zenimax and Valve Software, and how Bethesda seems to be filling in the gabs left by Valve sitting around making controllers and stuff.

I think Valve was wrong about the single player game
Jimbo 2: Revengeance (1 month ago)
You know, Prey was inspired by Bioshock, which was in turn inspired by System shock, which released before Half-Life. Half-Life and Prey barely share anything in terms of structure and game design.

At least Bethesda makes single player games, can't say that about Valve..

Evil Within 2 inspired by Ravenholm? Well that is a bit far fetched.

HALF LIFE FANS. You guys gotta play Prey Dishonored 1 and 2 Bioshock Bioshock 2 Fuck Bioshock Infinite. That’s all Really Dishonored is fucking epic play it if you haven’t.
Michael Pace (3 months ago)
in short valve doesn't care about their fans in the current climate and seem to have lost all their inspired employees over time. While Bethesda in general just pumps stuff out with high reviews again and again and just seem to keep growing., Also porting to console is a nice aside, I'd like to play Left 4 Dead 2 on this gens consoles for split screen but we know they won't do that.

Bethesda is a game developing company makes games, valve is a game developing company that doesn't. And yet valve still somehow manages to be the best...

Thank you for the brutal honest truth about Fallout 4 and the disgustingly oversimplified mechanics. It's a small detail but it's one I feel like doesn't get acknowledged often.

Prey is basically half life plus system shock. Its a very creative game and sadly very underrated.
Zachary Johnson (3 months ago)
I love Prey, and I'm glad someone else sees how similar they are: You're a badass with a bludgeoning tool and a suit. You never speak. Aliens in glass containers, being studied. No cutscenes (at least, so far). Aliens killing everyone are the fault of stupid science bitches. People explain things like pushing a button to you like you're retarded. Spider-like creatures, and you just know that some idiot has got one "tamed" as a "pet". Injecting yourself with so much shit that liver failure and/or severe brain damage is going to be what finally takes you down after surviving against an alien invasion. I mash that quick-save button like a motherfucker. You're speedy and can jump around like it's your first day of kindergarten. Stupid-ass self-recharging flashlight. Humanoid figures that fire pure sci-fi at you.

Don't think i've played a Bethesda game since Skyrim. And i know i sure as hell wouldn't want useless plastic "collector" edition stuff. Already got enough random clutter i would love to get rid of. Guess i'm not a "gamer" they market towards. xD

This video looks like a mistake in retrospect, doesn't it?
The Typer (4 months ago)
EDIT: Don't want this misconstrued, I think this is a cool video that covers some good topics surrounding the material presented. The following is moreso on the plain and simple "Valve v Bethesda" concept. It should also be stated there's other really great single-player games under other publishers out there, just not ones that "feel" so similar to Valve's strengths. I think it's worth making those distinctions between iD Software and Bethesda even more prominent, even though it's all under ZeniMax and gets "Bethesda" as the parent name a lot of the time. And I think it's worth making that distinction for the following: I'd trade in Fallout 3, 4, 76 and Bethesda's continued weird and busted methods of relying on systems that take away from story and narrative parallel with worldbuilding utilizing names and franchises that have previously been heralded as some of the best RPGs in video gaming, I'd give it all back, even if it possibly meant we didn't have Fallout: New Vegas (a phenomenally underrated game that was likely pushed out fast so Bethesda didn't have to pay Obsidion royalties for high game performance). Though Quake Heroes is a thing and DOOM has had some experimental releases, for the most part iD Software has been HEAVILY focusing their developments on single-player video games first, with MachineGames taking up the helm on Wolfenstein and as we found out today, iD's already working on Doom "2". A different studio is really responsible for Dishonored and Prey. In comparison Bethesda makes an MMORPG to rake in cash and keep some development up in the TES sphere while the next sequel people are actually interested in gets played (because TES's fan base is that strong), they make a giant Fallout game every chunk of years or so but are slowly implementing online-based systems into it to try and bring in Borderlands/Destiny/"lifestyle game" systems into a franchise that is now a giant experiment hub for the company, which in turn slowly strips away the elements that got people into these games, and they're making a new franchise for the next generation / platforms / next engine essentially. Quantity doesn't equal quality, even if it does mean nothing gets released and I'm willing to say both Bethesda and Valve have some shady business methods to sitting on top of their piles of money. And I agree, having some of these titles is FAR WORTH IT, but I really wouldn't say as of that result, that Bethesda's any better. It's just a really good analog for saying that Valve doesn't release enough titles anymore (because Valve used to actually release more quality titles more often, of a far better quality than what Bethesda Actual is going to be giving us in the next few years).

Maintaining tf2? I- Kinda can't agree on that. The team is small, and the game could do much better...
Sergeant Brown (4 months ago)
Huh. I was expecting something a bit more hostile from the "Valve vs Bethesda" title, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't genuinely surprised from its content. Definitely gonna expect more out of this series; of that you can be sure. As for the topic in question, I'm just dropping my two cents here when I say I was never really attached to single-player FPSes. I once bought (and still cherish) a physical Orange Box copy exceptionally for TF2 back then, but I eventually tried out HL2 and Portal -- and believe me when I say I tried; I gave up on HL2's Nova Prospekt after being 2-shot killed out of nowhere by a Poison/Fast Headcrab duo on a random corner of the map, and I also stopped playing Portal 1 after getting stumped on one of those platform-riding hallways over a sludge pit. To this day, I have yet to beat those two as well as Medal of Honor: Airborne (of which I wish I could play again if it weren't for superior graphic card shenanigans and ghfzndjfzdzjn...), I have yet to play both HL2 Episodes, Lost Coast, Portal 2 & Half-Life 1, and to this day the only 1P FPS game I've ever finished -- of all things -- is Medal of Honor: Heroes (yes, *that* PSP game). So maybe 1P FPSes aren't for me; maybe the seamless experience is a bit too exhaustive for me (I remember Ravenholm still being exhaustive on my mind even as I was reaching Nova Prospekt, so yeah), or maybe it's just the 3D aspect that doesn't work out for me quite like 2D action-based adventures do. Either way, it's just my two cents on the matter, and I have been wanting to speak about my 1P FPS experience for a while now, so yeah.

stoked for this. Prey 2017 is my fucking jam.
the dunce (4 months ago)
What does Prey have to do with Half-Life other than being an FPS and science fiction? I mean maybe in a universe where System Shock and Deus Ex don't exist I could think they're related, but that is a pretty baseless comparison.

I like this series so far. Keep em comin.
Toàn Khánh (4 months ago)
This sounds stupid as shit. Doom is fucking Doom! Prey is a System Shock 2 clone. And Wolfenstein is nothing like Half-Life (sorry but the gun play is just better).Today sure is a slow news day.
SPΛCEBOY (4 months ago)
I agree with you completely. I was just watching your videos a week ago and wondering if you or someone else was going to make a news network series on something other than valve. because lately valve is being dry on big news.

Nicolas Dussias (4 months ago)
I have faith in this new series. In a sucker for game reviews, especially fps.
Juiceyboy Johansen (4 months ago)
Not every single FPS is half-life inspired, a majority of Bethesda games draw inspiration from other works. Sorry your channel is starved for content but maybe you should of thought about that before basing your entire channel around one company. Shit changes with time and now that your speculation is dead you might have to adapt.
Jonnie Collier (4 months ago)
There's probably not enough content in it to warrant a whole video, but Titanfall 2 has (imo) one of the best singleplayer shooter experiences in recent years.

Zoshi (4 months ago)
I don't want Valve to make Half-Life over and over. That would get stale.
Nigralurker (4 months ago)
Keep in mind that much of the gunplay mechanic improvements for Fallout 4 were created by Id software simce both were under the banner of Zenimax. I'm not a fan of Bethesda's take on the Fallout series nor am I happy that IS software's Doom butchered modding in the form of their editor which is barebones and very much constrained. However they are making strides that is embarrassing to Valve. I'd be a bad day if Bethesda takes a leap towards their own service eith exclusive titles.

Bethesdas lineup of games was so nice until the crappy Wolfenstein 2 came out. That is the worst game I have ever played. I like the other two machine games ones

As much as people dislike Bethesda for releasing the same game over and over you really gotta appreciate the fact that they actually make games.
