VALVE Complete pack. To buy or not to buy...
Guys,I am in a dilemma here,confused if valve complete is really worth 99.99$?? I already have dota2 and portal 2. I can get orange box(retail) for only 13$ in India.Hence,Is CS and L4D worth it?I don't have many of my friends on steam... Also Are the Half Life games good?? Please give me suggestions.

DOTA2 is free to play and won't be included in the pack.

If you only have portal 2, then you have to ask your self "will I play all of these games?".

If yes, then get the pack or wait for a sale (should be one coming up in the next few months).

If no, then pick the pack with the games you want in it. Do the math. Is the pack cheaper then the games you want?

Thanks for the reply... And I don't really have any Idea if I wanna buy the games..That's why I came to discuss.. ... Btw when is the sale coming??
Also.. Dota 2 is in in the pack for 29.99$... but I already got for free through a generous guy who was giving away Dota 2..

Dota 2 its self will be free to play. The one in the pack contains in-game items. That is where it gets it's value from. The one you got from your friends didn't give you any items.

Easter is right around the corner as well as spring. I would say a spring sale is on it's way.

Ohhh!! I didn't know that.. What about the other games? How are they, to play in 2013... Like Half-Life or L4d or CS??

CS 1.6 plays fine, though visualy a bit dated. Half-life, Blue Shift and the Opposing Force offer a good story that continues in Half-life 2 and episode 1 and 2.

Left for Dead 1/2 was fun when I played with my wife and brother in-law. No so much without people you know.

Portal 1 was just as fun as Portal 2, though no multiplayer.

Was never into Day of Defeat myself.

Team fortress 2 is free to play.

That is all I can reneber off the top of my head.

Personaly, I'd go for this pack: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/715/

and get Portal 1 when it is on sale. That's me though.

It drops to $20 every now and then. Usualy during big sales. Possibly the Spring sale (not 100% sure they will have it, but likely will.).

I stopped playing CS a long time ago. CS:GO has gone for less then $8 before. I've seen L4D2 as low a $5.

you don't have to buy it via steam. Old games are usually sold cheaper on other stores.
