Why can't Gaben just come out and say, "We have no plans for releasing Hl3."

I don't see why Gaben can't just come out and say, "We have no plans of developing Half-Life 3 in the foreseeable future. At this time we are focusing on multiplayer experiences and gaining as much of the console market share as possible."

That way the fans of the series can move on and quit getting their hopes up year after year with every Valve announcement.

Half-Life 3 has been in development since 2002. Just be patient.

Every Half Life game has been revolutionary for the time they came out. I'm guessing Valve are waiting to develop a new engine to make the next one just as revolutionary.

HL is overrated.

We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

HL is overrated.


So is every "insert popular or highly rated game" as well. There's no such thing as an overrated game. You either like it or not and in some cases more people like a certain game than those who don't.

Valve should say (and probably already did say) "we have no plans to make HL3, when we do, we'll let you know". And then everyone should just go on with their lives.

Because HL3 is Valve's saving grace if Steam ever goes down in popularity

Why can't people just let it go? There are numerous HL2 mods, you can make your own levels and games with Forge etc. and there are more than a few cinematic FPS titles out there. You're literally swimming in a sea of choices when it comes to gaming (not all of them great, but more than few standout or at least "good" titles) and you're harping on one game series.
