    Half Life 2 + Episode 1 and 2
    Portal
    Team Fortress 2

    I have half-life 2 already but from i hear of ep1+2, there's not enough gameplay time to validate the money spent

    plus I'm not an EFF PEE ESSS type dude

    I'd play the fuck out of portal but man, it's behind those other 2 things something fierce

    on Steam's website, it says that Portal is 20 bucks stand alone.

    sounds good to me. unless the game is short.

    also, can't run it.

    It is very very short by appearances

    Had it unlocked for 1h45m and I'm on the last test which will, at a guess, take about half an hour

    But then there are bonus levels and challenges, and achievements and the inevitable custom maps soooo

    I wouldn't pay $20 for it but I would pay $45 for it, TF2, and ep2 (well $50 now I guess)

    I don't know if it has one now but the only reason it wouldn't have one sooner or later would be that gabe newell was replaced by his evil twin brother llewen ebag or something

    that was funnier in my head

    Well I just got the dual portal-gun.

    I'm stuck in a room with... well there's a set of stairs off to the left, that lead to a small but empty room. Then in front of me the floor is made out of that black, un-portal-able material except for the very end, which is then followed by a glass wall with a forcefield on top. Behind the glass wall is another puzzle room, with an energy ball launcher.

    Not sure if anyone can tell where that is. Doesn't seem to have a number.

    EP1 was fucking awesome man. Sure it was short, but it was just 20$. Plus, you now get EP1 AND 2, Portal and TF2 for the price of one regular game.
