This page is within the scope of WikiProject Video games, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of video games on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
This task force has been created to help co-ordinate work on articles relating to Valve Software, of which quite a large amount are in a terrible state at present. -- Sabre (talk) 16:54, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
Why is it part of this task force? --Mika1h (talk) 23:23, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Its a logical extension of the task force's scope: Valve did TFC and TF2, hiring the creators of TF1 to do it. TF is intrinsically linked to Valve, so it makes sense to add one article that is of historical importance to the company. -- Sabre (talk) 08:32, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
This article is desperate need of more info. This article should be FA by now. It has no gameplay or no information about the game whatsoever. Can article have a complete revamp?. --SkyWalker (talk) 05:34, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Half-Life: Uplink (film) under discussion for deletion
The article entitled Half-Life: Uplink (film) is being considered for deletion. I understand that this article is not under this task force, and I also understand that it is an unofficial part of the Half-Life canon, and is not endorsed by Valve. However, since it is related to Half-Life, I thought it would be worth notifying this task force, as it probably has members on it who are interested in all general apsects of Half-Life. Thank you for reading. OpenSeven (talk) 00:02, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Right now the articles/categories/lists are mixed between "Half-Life 2 mods" and "Source engine mods". "Half-Life 2 mods" was the status quo from a while ago before the mods started being for the Source engine, not just Half-Life 2. Should the remaining usage of "Half-Life 2 mods" be converted? If so should a Source engine category be created to separate Half-Life 2 articles from the mods/technologies? BJTalk 19:23, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
The remaining usage of "HL2 mod" should probably be put out of commission, mods tend only to need an official Valve game powered by Source now rather than HL2 itself, thus making "HL2 mod" somewhat inaccurate. Category:Half-Life 2 mods should just be renamed as "Source mods". -- Sabre (talk) 13:28, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
the page to which this link leads has been deleted -Resolutionsmasher (talk) 22:27, 14 December 2011 (UTC)-
now that i think about it, the page was probably deleted for a good reason, I personally own steam and have viewed their catalog, it is absolutly massive. I couldn't all those games on 20 of my computers, so maybe a set of lists would be more efficient. On the parent list, have a list of all the different game manufacturing companies that Steam sells for(i.e.-E.A Games, Gearbox, Crytek, etc...) Then have each manufacturer linked to a list of games that they sell on steam. Steam provides a list of their manufacturers, so it shouldn't be too hard to do, just time consuming.-Resolutionsmasher (talk) 22:26, 15 December 2011 (UTC)-
Just a suggestion, but maybe we should cover Mods for the games as well? Example, Garrys Mod. I want to make this project my main focus so i'll definitely work on adding them to our coverage if necessary. Catch me on my talk page if you need anything. G. Fire (talk) 21:28, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
If there is a framework for which mods get 'accepted' by the task force I'd say this is a good idea. Perhaps mod's that charge (such as again Garry's Mod) would be a logical benchmark.--Senor Freebie (talk) 22:41, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Exemplary mods are probably the only ones that need coverage, an easy way to tell if one is that good is to check with valve, they often aquire rights on the best mods and offer them through Steam(sometimes free, sometimes not). -Resolutionsmasher (talk) 22:05, 15 December 2011 (UTC)-
Attention, all contributors to the Valve Task Force and the articles it constitutes!
I am here to announce that I will be re-vitalizing the Valve Task Force, aimed at universally improving articles constituting Valve Corporation, their employees, associates and products. This specific task force has been dormant for quite some time and with two very notable releases coming out this year, I feel like this is the appropriate time to re-stimulate the general aim of this group. For those who are not already members of the Valve Task Force, feel free to add your name to our members list and contribute to whatever articles you feel your contributions may prove beneficial for. Valve, its products and notable employees have proven to be essential to the progression of the video game industry, so I'd like to make a call of arms for this cause.
