** The most well known was Gabe Newell's initial reaction to the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, which he said that the system was a "[[http://www.1up.com/news/gabe-newell-ps3-total-disaster total disaster on so many levels]]". This caused many of the early adopters that dared to adopt the then expensive platform to respond. Even though Gabe didn't see the [=XBox=] as very good of a platform, either, Valve decided to develop in house for it. Gabe didn't help smooth over relations with the [=PS3=] fanbase by outsourcing The Orange Box's [=PS3=] port to ElectronicArts, in which was seen as a total disaster. Over the years that followed, Gabe tried to slowly mend the relationship while still holding to his convictions, with having a new criticism for the system when a previous one was either fixed or debunked. Gabe had even admitted that he had many requests for Valve to develop for the system.

* {{Vaporware}}: Half-Life Episode 3 is legendary in the industry for becoming this: Episode 2 is considered the high point of the Half-Life 2 series, and it ends on a postively '''nasty''' {{Cliffhanger}}. Fans eagerly awaited news for the next game, which sadly just never came. Now that the series lead writer, Marc Laidlaw, has left the company, it's safe to say that the game has been unofficially cancelled.

* PoorCommunicationKills: Valve has become infamous for their lack of community interaction, which reached its height during the [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2013/11/02/valve-forgot-diretide-halloween-and-dota-2-fans-are-not-pleased/ Diretide controversy]] in 2013, where they canceled a highly-anticipated event for ''Videogame/DOTA2'' without actually telling anyone, resulting in a massive outcry, though they have since stated that they will interact more with the community. This becomes worse four years later with their announcement of Dota spin-off game ''Artifact'' that predominantly dislike by all Valve fandoms and ''even'' Dota fans were underwhelmed about this of ''not'' expected other Dota game that clearly they don't want and this finally cause [[BrokenBase fanbase to become disillusioned and accuse of Valve themselves]] as [=Sellouts=].
