GaryPatterson writes "We all had a bit of a laugh last week when Valve founder Gabe Newell said there were three reasons Apple doesn't help developers. He didn't so much list those reasons as talk around general issues. Today Tuncer from Inside Mac Games wrote a blog claiming Newell asked for a cool million dollars to port HL2 to the Mac. It's an interesting read and sheds a different light on Newell's recent comments."
sports fans usually have favorite players and teams, and love the fact that they are able to play as their own specific team/player. the espn games aren't simply branded as ESPN. they have the look and feel of ESPN telecasts as well as ESPN announcers and commentators. this just adds to the overall experience of the game which is supposed to be a recreation of the NBA or NHL or whatever. the fantasy league game would be utterly boring.
