Watch: the moment Valve disappointed its fans with new game

Whenever video game colossus Valve announces a new game, it’s almost guaranteed to be greeted warmly, to say the least.

After all, this was the same company behind Half Life, Left 4 Dead, the Counter-Strike franchise and several other titles.

However, as this week’s announcement showed, if there’s one genre that will be greeted with a negative reception, it’s probably the collectible card game.

This was the case when Valve showed a brief announcement trailer for Artifact, the Dota card game. The delayed “the Dota card game” line perfectly separates the rapturous applause from the mass disappointment.

Check out the clip below.
