While stylistically, I don't agree with his post, the man has a point. CS : S crashes on me, HL2 crashes on me. Researched it online, nothing fixes the problem. There are thousands of people with stability problems, and have wasted time updating drivers, flashing BIOS's, toying with game settings like lowering texture and sound quality, and it's still happening. Valve hasn't said a thing about it yet. It's been a couple of weeks now. Come on Valve! (Incidentally, NO other game I have is crashing, including Doom 3, Far Cry, IL-2 Forgotten Battles Expansion, Call of Duty, everything is running perfectly BUT HL2.)

I have to point this out although HL2 is more fun to play -- I didn't have one single problem playing Doom 3, and they still haven't made a patch for it.
