Valve Games on Origin

In an interesting twist to the competition between Valve's Steam and Electronic Arts' Origin, the Origin store is now selling some Valve games, as seen in this buy two get on free promotion, where the games in the "buy two" part include Counter-Strike: Source, Left For Dead: Game Of The Year Edition, and Left For Dead 2. Thanks Joystiq.

Misleading title. These games are electronic and require steam. So you can launch them through Origin but you need steam.
No, it's not misleading. All Steamworks titles - wherever they're bought - require Steam.

Steam is absolutely free and does not advertise or sell your personal information. I've used Steam ever since it started and not one game company has ever contacted me with a bulk mailer or anything that would lead me to believe my information had been sold. And, I've never paid anything to use Steam while they continue to provide updates and patches for every game that they support.

Thanks for providing this opportunity to see Steam as a value added product.
