    So long as capitalism reigns it'll take a lot more than a CEO change to make a company move away from focusing on profitability...

    Remember how piracy was going to destroy all gaming development?

    well it depends on the CEO, they may want to take it or restart a different direction, we know Gabe has no interest in the game development but rather just want to keep the dollars flowing in . A new CEO will want to make his mark

    A CEO doesn't control their own targets.

    What you're talking about is the board, who are representing shareholders, decide they don't like money any more and no longer expect to see a return on their investment.

    And even if a board took this stunningly rare approach, it'd simply get them voted off the board by said shareholders...

    The article we're commenting on literally mentions that he appears to only own roughly half :-P

    And even if he has the 51 percent controlling stake he can still be voted off the board for making decisions that reduce their sustainability by reducing earnings...no joke.

    I wonder if he would pay me any money since I've clearly done my part in getting him there.

    if you were around at the beginning of steam, where it's was mainly a hub for patches, mods and online play for half-life based games, it's amazing what it's turned into.

    Turned into the capitalization incarnate. Sure it was lacking in many ways in the early days but the mass flood of games, terrible store front page, shit support and all the other bs no one waned ruined it for me.

    GOG just shits on steam for my needs.
