    Especially since you can already play from more than one PC with any one steam account.
    Unless you meant simultaneously....

    This part of the page linked in the OP seems to be relevant:
    You will also see gift links beside your previously purchased games in your "My games" list. You can also find your gifts under the "Games" menu listed as "Manage gifts and guest passes".

    That would require someone to buy a copy of Half Life 1 for you. That isn't very likely. ;-)

    I don't think this thread is for Steam gifting, because the title says it is for "The Orange Box" gifting. Meaning it is for the kind folks here who already bought HL2 or EP:1 in the past and got a free copy of it via The Orange Box to let us bums see what we've been missing out on at no cost to themselves.

    Apparently you either have to be on my friends list or give me an email address if I want to give you something. Or am I missing something here?

    When one purchases Episode 1 from Steam, it includes Half Life 2: Deathmatch as well. Is this true for the gifted copy of Episode 1 as well?

    If so, I would love a copy and would be forever grateful. SteamID is the_r0b.

    If not, you can obtain HL2-DM via an ATi card (or a friend with an ATi card), and this handy link.

    You beautiful, beautiful man! Thanks much - I have fulfilled my DM needs and will no longer need Ep 1. I'll edit my previous post to indicate this.

    I just realized that since I got the Orange Box for Christmas and was previously gifted HL2 + EP1 by a generous PAer I can now gift away a copy of both HL2 and EP1. So, post and it is your's.

    My housemate is getting a new PC tomorrow, and has never played Halflife 2, if anyone could hook him up with a gift of HL2 and maybe even episode 1, that would be fantastic.

    Edit: No steam ID yet, I'll register him an account when he gets his PC.

    Edit2: Veitsev is sorting me out, so consider this request fullfilled, thanks a bunch dood!

    Out of interest, does a gifted copy of HL2 include HL2DM and CS: S

    There's also another offer for Nvidia which includes a Portal Demo that goes until before you get the orange shot, HL2 DM, HL2 The Lost Coast, and a bitching HL2 Themed Peggle Extreme.

    So basically you can only gift Half Life 2, right?

    Since I just upgraded my PC, and I'm currently on a budget right now, anyone willing to spare one of their HL2 copies to me? I haven't made a Steam account yet, but I plan to do so when I get home (in about an hour).

    I'm dying to try the available mods.

    Apparently I still have a gifting option for Episode 1, because whoever I sent it to before never activated the gift thing.

    I guess PM me if you need it.
