What a nice treat for those interested who don't own these games yet.

You can just click on Steam's link and then not continue with the installation to add the games to your Steam library.

The Half-Life collection was the first time I had to use Steam (Member since 16 November, 2004).

I wasn't overly happy about it back then as I remember. Now I can't do without it.

Very disappointed that Half Life 2 Episode 3 never happened but this is certainly good news for those who have never played the games before.

Same here Chucky. Got all the original games and then got Half-Life 2 in 2004 along with Steam. I had gotten that box set with strategy guide and t-shirt. The only ones I did not have via Steam were Opposing Force and Blue Shift which I do have the originals though.

With this Alyx game coming from out of nowhere I hope they have some other Half-Life stuff cooking. Would be nice to get a Half-Life 3.

I still don't understand why Valve made "Alyx" and exclusively VR game. What percentage of the total PC gamer market owns a VR set? I'd say no more than 10%.

It sounds like commercial suicide to me Panzer.

You need to play black mesa source.

VR set sales are increasing of late, and a built-from-ground-up for VR AAA game might just be the big push needed for it to become widely popular.
