Steam users have suddenly started review-bombing Dota 2.
Of course, there’s a reason behind this sudden influx of negative reviews.
Last week, ex-Valve writer Marc Laidlaw, who had previously worked as a lead writer on Half-Life, posted a the entire plot of Episode 3 as he would have envisioned it. This made people realise how long it’s been since Episode 2 came out, and that they’re probably never getting another Half-Life.
You’ll see that most recent negative reviews have the worlds “half-life” somewhere, either lamenting the release of Episode 3 or the lack of a full-blown Half-Life sequel.
Some have even decided to mention poor experiences with other Valve games, like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
“Hl3? i think not,” wrote one. “I would really like this game, except it murdered one of my favourite games. Rest in peace half life, i loved you,” said another.
