Bioware only got 10k votes against Blizzard. Valve got 20k+ votes.

But Zynga not being a real developer helped. We will see against Bioware.

True but a some of those Valve voters will probably vote for Bioware next round. Valve was being backed by the united forces from all over the internet. It was essential gamers vs (part of) facebook. The finals will be a fair fight between just the gamers, don't expect such numbers behind Valve again.

Well, this will be a tough vote. I love Valve, but I also love Dragon Age. Bioware makes great RPGs. At least I can say I wont be disappointed no matter which one wins.

Gabe Newell says, "If Valve does not win, then we will cancel Episode 3 Permanently."

Surprisingly the Developers of the most overrated games in the world have been conquered. (Bungie - Halo, Infinity Ward - MW)

this one is easy for me personally. Valve kinda brought me into PC gaming. Bioware's mass effect helped along with it, but I dont think that was as memorable as portal of tf2. (part 1 that is, dont know bout part 2).

vote valve

it would have been closer if it was vs Rockstar or Nintendo I guess. A lot of people jumped on the valve train after the Zynga victory

vote valve
I wanted to vote BioWare, but for reasons stated by Avalanche, I voted for Valve. Dragon Age is a cool guy and all, but the Orange Box got me on PC.

Would have to go with Valve. Just really really love TF2 & 1 vs the Bioware RPGs.....that & I think I've been spoiled by J-RPGs, its really hard for me to get into western RPGs. Valve on the other hand, can just pick up & play a game of TF1/TF2/L4D & have hours of fun ;P

Not to mention it's was the best deal in video game history.

Gotta love Valve for deals like that.



That video is awesome.

Valve has a 2% lead and there is 1 and a half hour left to vote.

And the voting is closed. Valve has a lead of 200 votes, which is not much in this case, and the twitter votes haven't been added yet.

Stay tuned, the end is nigh.

It's unbelievably close. My God it's close.

Yes!

All is right with the world...

Oddly enough, if I hadn't heard about the Zynga thing and you just told me Valve had won some contest I would have thought "Duh". Now it seems like a huge accomplishment.

I'm hoping Bioware gets Mass Effect 3 just right, if they do I'll be rooting for Bioware heavily.

Someone on the Escapist forums had the crazy idea that BioWare and VALVe would merge. BioValve.

The world would implode from the awesomeness. We are not ready for that.
