The origin and definition of ''It was worth the weight''
Worth the Weight
A joke about the heavy founder of Valve, Gabe Newell, a game developer that creates great games but is terribly slow. It stems from Gabe himself saying that a certain game will be "Worth the wait" when it comes out,the original line, however, did not use the word “weight”, but rather “wait”: “After 9 years in development, hopefully it would have been worth the wait.” It is often used to mock Gabe’s weight and large physique.
