YES!

GET THE VALVE COMPLETE PACK ON THE SUMMER SALE, IT'S SO WORTH IT!

Ignore "Mindjacker", he's just a troll. This game is amazing. Sure It's mostly just a generic FPS, but the story is epic, the game is immersive, and the characters are believable. And If you agree with game scores, it's the top rated game of all time on MetaCritic.

Okay, well thank you for your advice anyways!
I just downloaded the demo and its pretty good, I'll admit. I'll probably wait a little while before I get it, it'll probably drop in price in the next sale or something.

If you wait for sales it's a sin not to get it. Besides being a really great game, Half-Life 2 and the original Half-Life are milestones in the FPS genre. Plus the tons of mods that you can play. Saving a few bucks it's not worth!!!

Get it. The Half-Life series is fun and challenging as well as brilliantly written. I started playing it and I could not stop unless breaking for my TF2 addiction. :3

Ya, it's great. And it's now also available on Linux. Love <3

the campaign of Dr Freeman is awesome as well, in all hl2 ep1 ep2 or even lost cost. Best story and gameplay with tricks and adventures. just no ordinary one.

Speaking of HL2, check out what this crazy but talented kid (with too much free time on his hands...) made with Garry's Mod a few years ago (it won the '08 Ivy Film Festival Machinima Award for best video). It's a clever take on HL2 with a Hitchcock theme. Almost professional. One of the best done for HL2, IMHO:
