    Escapist magazine is doing this poll where you pick the best game developer. For those of you who don't know who Zynga is, they make mindless facebook apps like Farmville. By commanding the sheeple that play their mindless games to vote for them, they are currently winning against Valve. WTF???

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/532.184375-Poll-Round-5-Field-of-Four-7-Zynga-vs-1-Valve

    First of all, Zynga doesn't even belong in the same category as the other developers. Second, they don't deserve any sort of "Best Developer" title when the only thing they have done is create glorified progress bars that you click on to make them advance, and pay money to make them advance faster. Yet they have already managed to beat several other developers, and the only two that remain to fight against them are Valve and Bioware.

    So if I were you, I would go to the Escapist right now and vote against these fuckers. It would be a great injustice to gaming if they ended up winning. Also, they totally suck as developers. They stole the idea for pretty much every game they made, and watered it down to mindless clicking. Their games are riddled with bugs, and they choose not to fix them. There's also this whole thing where the CEO admitted to being a scammer. More info on these topics is buried in the escapist thread.

    So sad
    all those games remind me of pyramid scams, since they try to make you get your friends to play aswell to make you stronger in the game.

    It's not about Valve, it's about a shitty game developer getting the prize for being the best developer. Think about that. :p

    I think we're too late. Voting seems to be closed.

    Go Go Go Zynga! Valve should have better worked on Episode 3 than on their Left4Dead full priced expansion pack.
