The Orange Box Turns 10

The Team Fortress 2 blog notes the 10th anniversary of the original release of The Orange Box, which bundled Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal all on one package, as games used to be distributed in places called stores on these things called DVDs. True to the blog, the post focuses on TF2, though they also reveal that Valve was never happy with how The Orange Box was marketed at the time. Speaking of unhappiness with how things were marketed, there's this little matter of being promised a three-part episodic expansion for Half-Life 2 that's gone without a part three for a decade now, but we're not getting our hopes up that we'll ever hear anything more about this, much less ever get to actually play it.

I quit playing team fortress 17 years ago.

Who says the games industry has stagnated?
Yeah well... I bought the Orange Box mainly because of Team Fortress 2, but quickly noticed that it wasnt nearly as good as TFC.
I played TFC for almost a decade and still laughed my ass off every day, because of funny situations, made possible due to its design. While in TF2 all the humor came solely from the graphics design, which only lasted a few hours. Its gameplay was far inferior, because it got dumbed down massively.
Never understood how it got that popular.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
