I still never played the Half-Life games...Even when they were 75% off. Probably because there are so many different versions of them (seriously, which ones should I be playing?). I'll still try this out though.

there are two. One has two expansions.

Start with Half Life 1, then Half Life 2, then the two expansions for two.

There is also a deathmatch which doesn't have a whole lot to with the games at all.

Then there is the Lost Coast which is basically a tech demo.

There's actually 2 full games, 2 spin-offs and 2 expansions.

Half life
Half life: Blue shift (Barney the security guard story from half life 2)
Half life: oppose force (the story of the marines)
Half life 2
Half life 2: episode 1
Half life 2: episode 2

If you have a DC you can play half life 1 and blueshift on one disc (like I did)
Or half life on the ps2 which also comes with those two chicks story (like I also did)
Then the orange box which comes with all the half life 2 (like I did)

Opposing Force came first, actually, and it wasn't a combined story - it was the story seen through the eyes of one of the cover-up soldiers. :-)

I'll get it once it's on Steam. Should be soon enough. All the other downloads are painfully slow.

Amazing. Especially for those who missed it.

this guy....

Well I have to admit I wasn´t always a Half-life fan... For me it was no different than Doom or Quake at that time... hell I had more fun playing Duke nukem 3d

When the Orange Box came out I decided to give it a try since I had already played Portal & already knew about the Cinematic Mod (7.0 at that time)... I loved it!

Now I couldn´t do the same with HL1... Despite I already knew this was the game that started all, I just couldn´t go back the 90´s. I saw the videos I and told myself, there´s no way I can play that. Then Black Mesa surfaced more as a "what if" project rather than a real posibility. Now is here!!!

......I don't believe it. I just don't.

8 years of waiting and it just poops onto the internet with almost no fanfare? WHAT DA FLIP

DAMNIT, I'm at work. I wanna play really bad. It hurts my soul waiting for this. They deserved for me to take off of work to download this.
