This is ridiculous and untrue, I play a game on steam that has had the same exact bug for over a year.
I mean specifically Valve owned/acquired/produced Steam game. Not the tons of independent devs or EA or other developers. Gaben obviously doesn't patch those or have much of a say patching those. Sorry if that was unclear.
With the above clarification, I stand by what I said 100%. Give me one example of such Valve/Steam game bug even approaching this magnitude.
For example, a bug which causes the end of a TF2 round to result in a loss for both players? Valve would patch that in closer to 1 day than 6 months...and wins/losses don't even matter in TF2.
