Complete Half-Life newb
First let me say I've had the "valve pack complete" for like a year, but haven't played anything.
I just started playing "half life 2" and my god this game OWNS!
Few questions: There are a million "half life" versions in the valve pack. Can anyone (with like an hour on their hands) run down what all the half life versions are? There are literally like 10 half life games.
PS: How bad is it that I'm playing half life 2 before half life 1? (Can anyone give me a 10 second review of half life 1? What happened storywise that I should know?)
PS 2: I also have all the counterstrike games. Are the counterstrike games like half life? As in, storyline etc, or are they all multiplayer FPS?
I appreciate any advice or info you can provide to this newb
