Portal 2 music video contest announced

A News for Portal 2

June 15, 2011 - Valve, creator of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source) and popular recording artist The National, today announced a music video making contest based on The National's song "Exile Vilify" which is featured in Valve's best-selling game, Portal 2. Starting today and running until midnight July 15th, the contest asks the community to make a music video for the song "Exile Vilify" using whatever visuals they choose.
Once aspiring video directors have completed their work, they may submit their videos on YouTube using the tag PORTAL2NATIONALEXILE. After the deadline, Valve, The National, and the community will select the winner who will win a prize package including a guitar autographed by The National plus a collection of Portal 2 merchandise. "Exile Vilify" was penned by The National specifically for Portal 2, which is the year's highest rated multiplatform game release.

Then after, Valve altered the game so much that it didn't even look like what Turtle Rock had even created, and quite a few people still wish Valve kept the game the same to this day. Community thoughts =/= Valve's interests, which is money, just like any other company...

    Ugh.. how many times do I need to remind people. Valve didn't CREATE CS or L4D. Turtle Rock Studios did. Valve merely "updated" and published them.

    Another one after the tf2 video ones? I think valve is going to start creating one contest after another, is this some sort of new hype?
