Can't start a new game
Ok, I cant seem to start a new HL2 game, and it just drops back to the main menu instead of starting. I get the message in the console screenshot below. So far I've tried verifying the files and restarting. I've also tried deleting the local files and re-installing the game. Also the lievel select does the same thing, but if I load an old save from a few years ago, it starts right up on the start of the game. Anybody else got any more ideas.

Try deleting your actual file directory (steam/steamapps/account-name/comon/Half-Life 2) then delete your local content.
You see, when you uninstall a game with the "Delete Local COntent", all that will do is install the game with the same error. What you wanna do is what I said above, delete everything, make sure it doesn't exist.

OK, thank you, that worked. Didn't think to manually purge the directory.
