It's as simple as that.

Valve: 'We try to make it easier for us to be successful'
by Daniel Carneiro

Unlike the last few years, Valve had a massive presence at this year's gamescom. In celebration of their newest game, Dota 2, they held a massive tournament called "The International." During this contest, we were able to talk to Valve co-founder Gabe Newell in an extensive 12-minute video interview.

Topics discussed include Valve's keen eye for new talent, the viability of the free-to-play model, the community around Dota, and what the company is planning on doing with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
