Your Turn: February winner

Date

Zoom in on this story. Explore all there is to know.

Is Valve using its power well? This month's winning Your Turn asked just that.

Is Valve using its power well? This month's winning Your Turn asked just that.

February was an unusually quiet month for our Your Turn initiative, with only three reader-submitted articles coming in, and two of them were from the same writer.

Ryan Linegar kicked off the month with a fascinating analysis of the current state of the video gaming industry, concluding that it will need to change how it does business if it wants to survive.

Ryan was back the next week with another great piece of industry analysis, this time looking at PC gaming powerhouse Valve and asking how well they are using their power.

Finally, Leigh Martin gave us an interesting take on hype cycle, talking about the many interlocking parts of the promotion of an upcoming blockbuster game.

I've decided to hand the "best of the month" title to Ryan for his great discussion about Valve. When a company holds that much power, it's interesting to see if they will use it to achieve something good. Ryan wins a Sony PlayStation Vita handheld gaming machine, courtesy of our friends at Sony Australia.

If you'd like to score a Vita, send an article of your own to SPYourTurn@gmail.com. It can be industry analysis, personal experiences, or just a straight-up game review - everyone is welcome to participate.
