Day of Defeat: Source Free Weekend Underway

As promised (story), the Day of Defeat: Source Free Weekend is now underway. All that's needed to sample the World War II shooter is a Steam account. Word is: "Day of Defeat: Source is the latest version of the WWII online action game from ValveŽ. This weekend, everyone is invited to try DoD: Source for free. Join the ranks as Axis or Allies troops located in Western Europe during the height of the war in 1944."

Isn't that the value of EVERY game?
You obviously need to play some games other than Valve's. No, my statement isn't true of even most games let alone every game. With most FPS games you get at least ten multiplayer maps. And, in the rare cases where that isn't true, you usually get a series of single-player maps to play through. With Day Of Defeat Source you get neither.

I don't recall one game that I like just for the original game.
That's not my point. Almost everyone if not everyone likes at least some user-created content for games. The point is that the game as delivered from the developer should offer a lengthy and complete experience on its own. User-created content is a free bonus not a crutch to make up for a sparce game especially when those users who created the additional content weren't financially compensated for their efforts.
