"monthly fee"

How would that work with older copies of Half life? I cant see them being able to charge for HL/CS(1) surely that must be voiding some kind of EULA?
The Steam EULA allows Valve to change the terms at any time for any reason.

And it isnt like any more patches come out for HL1 is it.
Yes, but the current STEAM version of Half-Life only works if authenticated by Steam. The old version of Half-Life no longer functions for online play because the WON CD key authentication system is gone.

I just cant see the pay monthly thing working for HL
I can. Valve already has the system in place and everyone converted to Steam, so all it needs to do is simply flip a switch (metaphorically speaking).
