Steam is free, but HL2 is not.

So just install, enter product key, open program after download complete, and play?

It was written by the man that played the Captain... after the Real McCoys and before Rambone.

If you can find the later update packages elsewhere, I'd say to avoid Steam totally.
But that's just me.

When I installed HL-2, it helpfully "updated" HL-1 to "current status" (note that it did not give any CHOICE, it just DOES IT) and the result of this was that from then on, HL-1 would crash on startup.

Of course after about a year, HL-2 wouldn't work anymore either. When Steam tried to log on, suddenly it says "incorrect password", even though there were no other indications that my PC ever got hacked, I only ever played from my home PC and nobody else ever played it.

Valve would not answer any emails.
Valve's rules say that they can kill ANY user account/serial, if it is caught using cheats. It doesn't matter if your account info was stolen or not. I can only assume that was what happened. I never got any info at all out of Valve.

No more money for Valve, and no more user info for Valve, they can go suck a dick.
