all big titles that came out 2004, even halo 2 came out before hf2 even if it was by a week, but I played ut2004 and it has vehicles(it came out march)
bf1942 was released 2002

the only thing new was the source engine, the game half-life 2 by it self wasnt any marvel of its time, but it had a great story and was well made, but frankly it doesnt and didnt stand up to bring in new things into game play mechanics for its time

I never saw that half-life 2 had so much more to add to game play compared to half-life 1, the only thing i remember was that you had car\boat you could drive around and a weapon that lets you pick up things to throw, like saw blades at zombies
Really there wasnt much it did do revolutionary in game play when it came out, alot of different more games were released at that time that did have more game play mechanics that half-life 2

CS:GO dosnt have all the new things, heck it is a very basic game compared to even TF, so new things are neat, but we can see that new things are not all that is needed to have a good game

I could go to say that maybe valve has a writers block for the story or the developers like mojang got tired that people(players) expected to have it all now now and as great it is in their(playes) mind that the developers got tired of it and said fuck it, I move on

that must also bring alot of money, why dont they talk about that or add that to the calculations?, that they own ebay, paypal and other companies that they own and doesnt have the google-sticker on them that bring in the cash, play market aswell?

maybe ads will not be their main income in the future? but they will still have enough cash income from ads to roll around in it

maybe because while apple products are expensive the other manufacturers focus also on low budget models that doesnt give them the same profit
other phone-manufacturers doesnt receive the income from the *market aswell, when it comes to android, goggle takes that bit
and thoose well-engineered refinements are usually made by other companies and not apple, for now they dont just sell a phone/computer they sell a brand, like those nike shoes that cost 400 us-dollar but they do that they are meant to do, make people being enough comfortable to use them and feel like they are using something top-notch when in reality it is made of the same stuff as the 20 us-dollar shoe

what I understand is that ISP's already "voluntary" block content, that content mostly involves sites with child pornography, that thing people can understand is blocked, but to begin to block hate messages content could lead to "voluntary" blocking of peoples opinion that a state/eu doesn’t like
