Valve is arguably one of the best developers out there. They have developed some of the best first person shooters and it’s surprising to see that none of their work has ever faltered. Today we take a look at ten of those awesome games developed by Valve. So let’s get started.

Editors Note: This listing is random and is not ranked.

Half Life

Cast as a weedy scientist called Gordon Freeman, Half-Life tells the story of an alien invasion as seen through the eyes of the unlikely hero. A failed experiment has created a rift in time, through which hordes of slavering monsters are emerging. Initially with only limited security clearance and a paltry weapon, Gordon finds himself the lone hero in a running battle and left to gather his wits and whatever weapons come to hand. With the action using a stunning first-person viewpoint within a 3D landscape, the player must do whatever it takes to end the alien threat. But everything is not as it seems and the presence of Government SWAT teams further complicates matters.

Half Life 2

Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player’s presence affects everything around him, from the physical environments to the behaviors, even the emotions of both friends and enemies. The player again picks up the crowbar of research scientist, Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted and its population dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people — people he cares about — are counting on him.

Team Fortress 2

Team Fortress 2 was an all-new version of the legendary title that spawned team based multiplayer action games. The game’s daring new art style features the most advanced graphics of any Source-based game released to date.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • next you should name 10 pixar films in no particular order

  • Did you seriously list Portal, TF2 and the Orange Box seperately?

    Also, what Valve games AREN’T on this list? Throw TFC on there and you have their entire catalogue. You might as well have listed the 1 game that wasn’t in the top 10.

  • Never played Ricochet and hated Alien Swarm.

    Valve is my favorite gaming company next to Rockstar.

    The Orange Box isn’t considered a game, just a bundle pack.

  • This list might as well have just been called “The 10 Games Valve Developed”. You guys also cheated by including The Orange Box AND it’s contents on the list.

    • Omfg that’s exactly what I was thinking lol! I like how they ran out of slots so they put Alien Swarm and Ricochet in there to pad it out.

  • Seriously? This is your idea of an article?

  • Ricochet????

    Rashid when you get up wake up 😉

  • seriously? …and TFC is still better than TF2 anyway.

  • Agree completely. You copped out with the Orange Box entry. Start looking for a new hobby.

  • This is weak. This is pretty much just a list of games Valve has made through the years. Now please make a list of titles that didn’t make the cut. How many are left out?

    Also, how should Counter-Strike:Source and Day of Defeat:Source factor in as anything significant? The source versions are just remakes of the third party-developed mods CS and DoD. Whatever makes CS and DoD worth mentioning as games is not a product of Valve’s effort, but the efforts of he original mod teams.

    How this topped Digg, I’ll never know…

  • Yeah, I didn’t even know Valve had made 10 games…

  • That’s like….all of Valve’s games. o.O

    This doesn’t qualify as an “article”.

  • CS > CSS

    I have a 6 digit steam account

    Ricochet was soooo bad. Wanted on the other hand, was badass. FPS cowboys? Count me in. You could use scorpions as mines, have a cannon on your shoulder, six shooters… now that game was cool.

  • Yea, lets be real guys… page 3 didn’t even try.

    Here is a link to the list of all the games they made:

    Deathmatch Classic? Blue-Shift and Opposing Force? Hell, even Condition Zero Deleted Scenes are all other real options as opposed to making “The Orange Box” a pick

  • Pingback: Super.licio.us | Superlevel()

  • It should have been a top 3 or 5 at most. Would have made it more challenging.

    I didn’t now they’d even made 10 games. I thought Valve mainly just recruited modders who made the games and then slapped their logo on it, or else they just took over other franchises that were made by other people. Case in point: Counter-Strike. At least that wasn’t on the list. Oh, and Portal, Team Fortress, Day of Defeat, DotA, etc. They were all originally games or mods made by other devs or modders.

    Still, to their credit, the games they have made are pretty damn good. That’s the Half-Life series and the Left 4 Dead series. Those are what I consider “true” Valve titles.

  • this site is f**king sh*t!

    author basically listed all the games Valve published…wtf!?

    Ricohet? yes i know this guy is retarded and this site is a piece of sh* and a time wasting!

  • rak33n

    mos def half life 2 that game was mind blowing !
