    Coming next week - Valve discover nobody has downloaded the HL connection because literally everyone owns it already

    Although damn I bet there's a ton of younger people who have no idea about the original game. There's people on Steam now who were born AFTER HL2 came out!

    Literally I have never owned, nor ever played, any of the HL games. Literally, you are incorrect. Literally.

    I can quite easily find you a good handful or two of other long-time gamers who have also never gotten around to HL too, if you like?

    Thing is, I'd have taken this offer, were it not time-limited.

    I did add the games to my library, but like you, I'm unlikely to play it as I doubt I'll have the time in the next two months to complete the lot... and I am not too keen to buy these games...

    Re: Complete Half-Life Series is free to play until Alyx is released

    To be fair, I borrow HL1 and binged it in a day when it came out. It's not a long game.

    I think I was more "into" the experience by the time HL2 came out, so probably took more time about it - but from memory, you can easily just run through the thing.
