Half-Life2 came with my video card. Last time I actually bought a Valve product was when a some of us pooled money for one of the Half-Life packs with CS, BlueShift etc... and we only did that for the CD keys so we could play Natural Selection online (Never even opened the CD sleeves).

Steam doesn't work properly or efficiently.
Half-Life2 was nice, but the Source engine aint that hot (multiplayer wise).
Counter-Strike was old *years* ago... Source version doesn't fix that.
DOD:Source... meh, gimme Call of Duty2 (Yay, no Steam!).

And WTF happened to the mod scene?

/me cries

Stuff it... I'll go gank some Alliance to make myself feel big.
