Have You Played… – The Orange Box

Nave360: "Have You Played..." is a new weekly segment from the creator of "Do You Remember?", on asking gamers if they have played the game in question. It's similar to "Do You Remember?", but it looks at current generation games, no matter what platform they are on! The segment will ask you at the end if you have played it, plus what your score for the game would be, so this segment gets you involved. If you have not played the game, at the same time, Charlie will give his score on how badly this needs to be played and if it's for you.

Now I did a "Do You Remember? - Half-Life" before, so I felt it was only fair to do the Orange Box seeing's as they both fit. The Orange Box is one phenomenal package, and one that you really need to play, whether it's for one week or one hour. (PC, PS3, The Orange Box, Xbox 360)

Update What should next weeks "Have You Played..." be?

It's between Darksiders, Brutal Legend or Metro 2033. Decide in the comments.

I haven't played through the Orange Box since '08.
I'm gonna marathon through it this week!

I thought "what the hell" and picked it up cheap a couple of years ago on my PS3. It was awesome! Worth it for Portal alone. The way people were going on online you'd think the PS3 version was unplayable but nothing could have been further from the truth. I think I got stuck in a wall once in the 3rd episode. Never really got into TF2. Excellent game all around.

The Orange Box = The gift that keeps on giving
I think the Orange box is like the greatest combination of games in one package ever. (Well excluding Square Enix entire PC library for $80 on Steam a few weeks ago).

I play through HL2 or the episodes at least once a month. Team Fortress 2 PC gets updated like every 10 hours. And since we are getting so close to Portal 2 i'm sure i will run through that in the next few weeks.

with so much of an awesome value i wonder what will Valve do to try an top that? Any ideas for the Orange Box 2?

HL2, ep1, ep2, ep3, Team Fortress 3, Portal 2.1, Day of Defeat 2, Counter Strike 2 Beta key... now that would Kick Ass

It's a two-way system though. Thanks to the OrangeBox, there's a lot of people that tried TF2... which eventually led to the big cashcow that buys anything and everything linked to pointless TF2 hats.

I know it works because I pre-ordered Shogun2 just for those damn items. =(
(Well, I actually played the demo and ended up liking it... but I probably would've waited for a steam sale if it weren't for those damn, pointless, items)

As for a second Orange Box... err... Dota, Portal2, All the half-lifes (+ new ep) and... Black Mesa source? Urgh.

I honestly don't know a single gamer in real life who doesn't have the Orange Box.

I got mine on PS3 lol. Sure, it was a bit inferior to the other versions, but that didn't stop me from having a hellofalotof fun!

I think its the only game in my PS3 collection I dont want to bother touching anymore. Team Fortress was unplayable, period. Portal was fun, but was short as hell.

Half Life 2 and the expansion I heard so many great things and how it was like Doom etc...only to find out its not my type of game.

Thus Valve cant excite me much anymore. Portal 2 looks cool, but the whole FPS not about shooting and becoming strategy is already becoming apart of other games.
HebrewHammer  +   1288d ago
Blasphemy! Half-Life is EVERYONE'S type of game! Got it?
theonlylolking  +   1288d ago
Yes, half life was disappointing, the orange box was ok, and portal was/is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
