You guys seriously need to tone down the whining. It's ten freaking dollars. Nobody flies off the handle at having to pay $5 for Force Pit access, which is just early 1.3 information, whereas Gmod is the most popular mod on the internet. Garry's put in a lot of time and work into it, even winning Mod of the Year. $10 for that isn't a curse, it's just free mods are a blessing taken for granted.
You've had 9 free releases and countless free updates, which you can still play even when the monopolised version's out. Fileplanet...heck even ESF-World charge for a 'premium' service where you get more when you pay, the same logic applies here.
I would have cared if there was anyone (at least 1 (one) living soul) that had the knowledge and talent to set up a decent scene.. 99.999% of the GMod sets look like crap, fail at humor and totally look unrealistic (while the source engine is capable of producing realistic looking images)..
I wouldn't mind paying ten dollars for a game. This...isn't a game. And it's probably made from simple physics debugging software that completely unprofessional valve left attached to the game's source code or something.
This does not take talent. This takes like, set_gravity 0, set_jointlock 0, set_physics 0. THIS IS NOT WORTH EVEN ONE DOLLAR.
Wow how about acting like an adult and not calling people childish names?
VALVe has been talks with Garry since it was first released, its different than other mods, much like CS and DoD for their time. VALVe decided to give Garry a free Source engine license and do what he wanted with it, $10 isn't breaking anyones bank, heck doesn't to me and I'm unemployed right now.
Too many people have been complaining about this on EVERY single forum. They think all mods will start selling, which is horribly wrong. Unless you have a license to the engine you aren't selling it at all. Oh and Garry's mod won't be considered a mod anymore since now he can start changing more things than previously in the SDK.
