It's really hard to say anything negative about Team Fortress 2.

I've been writing for Kotaku since a year before Valve released its cartoon-flavored online multiplayer shooter, and in all that time I can't think of a game that's more universally adored by players, press and casual observers. It's really odd, especially considering how quickly fans can turn on a competitive first-person shooter when things don't go their way.

I guess people just really enjoy hats. We make fun, but Valve's really on to something here.

So thanks to Smosh Games, I'm downloading Team Fortress 2 again. Jerks.
