Half-Life, Portal scribe leaves ValveFaliszek was thrilled to pose for this Ars Technica photo back in 2009.
Chet Faliszek, one of Valve’s most public-facing personalities and a key writer behind some of the company’s most well-remembered games, has left the company after a 12-year stint, according to GamesIndustry.biz.
Faliszek insisted to GamesIndustry that there is “nothing exciting or drama filled” behind his departure. “I worked there 12 years, shipped a bunch of great games and some amazing hardware and wanted to change things up.

There’s no news on what’s next etc, I will let you know when that happens.”
Long-time fans of snarky gaming commentary might remember Faliszek from Old Man Murray, an irreverent site he ran with Eric Wolpaw. Wolpaw and Faliszek would both be hired by Valve in 2005 and go on to help develop the unique voice behind two Half-Life 2 expansion episodes, both Portal games, and the Left 4 Dead series, among other titles.
