    Funnily enough, there's a huge WAR going on over at the Escapist website over a competition they're running on the best game developer. Todays vote is Valve vs Zynga, the company responsible for all your Facebook favorites such as Mafia Wars and Farmville.

    You'd think it'd be an easy choice for the gaming community, but it's almost a 50%/50% spread at the moment. What's OTs take on this?

    BTW, that thread has over 500 PAGES of drama, flaming, and heated arguments over this. lol

    So it's pretty much gamers vs. everyone else.

    Who cares what a dumb poll says, Valve is by far the better developer.

    Well, not really. I'm a gamer, and I play both. Half Life 2 for some action, or Farmville when I'm chilling on Facebook.

    I'm pretty sure he was just saying that any gamer is going to vote for Valve, even if they play the facebook games too.

    Let's compare Game of the Year awards and Metacritic scores and see who's the better developer... :mamoru:

    The only reason Zynga is even in the finals is because they are offering free Farmville items to people who vote for them. :ugh2: Fail.

    Both sides are "begging" for votes on Facebook. Both sides also have Tweets up about the competition, also asking users to vote for them. So, no big deal there, imo.

    looks like valve has pulled ahead, but the fact that they aren't blowing them out of the water makes me question some of the gamers these days
