Garry's Mod
So, I heard from a friend that in order to play Garry's mod, you need to have a source game. Now, Team Fortress 2 is free, and I'm pretty sure it is built with the source engine, so is that enough? Do I have to buy Counter Strike? Do you still have to buy Counter Strike Source? I'm not really sure. The steam page says nothing, but my info is probably old. I just want to know before I buy it.

I know Gmod isn't free. What I'm asking is if I have to buy another game to play it. I heard you need a Source game to run Gmod, but I'm not sure if Team Fortress 2 is enough or not.

GMod is indeed not free and comes with minimal content but its uh 'playable' by Gmod standard, you can also download a nice (free) amount of stuff from steam workshop to play around with, so yeah you can buy Gmod, download TF2 for free and have more stuff to play around with.

you only have to get CS if you really want said content.

Since the winter sales have started word of advice; Gmod can be bought cheaper, I bought it 75% off during autumn sales.

edit; I spell gud

Garry's Mod - The commercial "game" is not free. You buy it through Steam and you don't have to have a Source-game. It's a source game itself.

If you're thinking about the pre-commercial version of Garry's Mod v9, it's completely free and you just need to have a Source game, as it's not a game, but a Mod. It's old as hell though.

TF2 would work but I highly recommend you get CSS and HL2 and the HL2 episodes. Almost all of the online content uses it and without it you won't be able to play gamemodes like gmtower or trouble in terrorist town.

TF2 will work, but if you own other source games too such as Counter-Strike: Source, you will unlock more content for it, like props, weapons.

You don't need a source game Gmod comes with its own little engine now.
