holy shit wtf Valve
You might not know it, but right now an epic battle is raging. Valve are through to the Semi Finals of March Mayhem, a developer tournament hosted on EscapistMagazine.com. So far, Valve have smashed the opposition. Now, they're going to face the tournament darkhorses.
Zynga (the creators of Farmville) have gone through NCSoft, Infinity Ward, Rockstar and Square Enix to get to this round. How Farmville beats COD, GTA and Final Fantasy, I'm not sure, but I know one thing.
This stops here.
When zynga took out Square Enix in the quarter finals, 14,000 votes were cast. 6,500 of those were cast AGAINST Zynga, but still they emerged victorious. As seperate groups, as clans and as friends groups, we are to few to beat the horde. Together, we stand a chance.
We are all united by one thing. We are gamers. Whatever your chosen game, whatever your favoured platform, we are all gamers. So stand with me, rise with me, and VOTE VALVE!

Please, come and vote, show your support, not just for Valve, but for Gaming as a whole.
