-Hires people who make good mods so they have bigger budgets to work with
-Doesn't force deadlines upon his employees
-Every Valve game is a must-play
-Steam revolutionized digital distribution which in turn revolutionized PC gaming
-Doesn't believe in ripping off customers, believes in making them happy
-Puts on great sales all the time, I showed some console gamers the Steam Sale a few days ago and they couldn't believe their eyes that such prices were possible
-GabeN has done so much for gamers, it would be next to impossible to find a gamer that doesn't like him

Among hardcore fans, yes. He's well-respected among most PC gamers. If you consider the industry to be the people actually involved with the business, probably not. I don't know how well Valve is looked upon by most of the Video Game developers and publishers considering they have a virtual monopoly on PC distribution and discount their games so often.

We know how EA feels about Steam sales. But in terms of customer satisfaction I don't think any other developer or studio could match up to Gabe.

Of course not, but he's the founder and owner of Valve. He outlined the company's mission statement and the culture at Valve.
