I think Team Fortress is the most online-y of the group.

It was already a bargain at regular price. On sale it's even better. Not sure how many folks are playing TF2 though.

Only TF2 has online play. It's fucking brilliant, though. I bought the PC version and haven't really stopped playing.

The Orange Box is probly not only one of the best gaming experiences in a long time, but also the most cost effective. You're getting 5 games (HL2, HL2 Ep 1, HL2 Ep 2, Portal, and TF2) for less than the price of one.

I'd pay 40.00 for Portal.

By itself.

Plus, now you'll be in on all the hipster in jokes from Portal!

Portal is earning raves from pretty much every corner of the universe.

Portal has the best ending of any game released in 2007.

HL2 will start out very slow, but I hear it gets better.

Glad you liked it. HL2 and the two eps were fun, even if I had no idea what the hell was going on, but Portal is probably my favorite gaming experience of the year.

The basic story of Half life is that Black Mesa hires Gordon Freeman to work on a dimensional rift project. The day he arrives all hell breaks loose with the portal(not Freeman's fault), and all kinds of aliens and insanity comes pouring out.

Gordon fights back, and at the end after he manages to close the portal, the mysterious guy in the suit(who know one has any idea who the hell is, or who he's working for), captures you and puts you on ice for a rainy day.

Then in Half life 2 it's who knows how many years later, the man in the suit has let Gordon loose to do what he does best, and the world has gone to shit from the aliens, and god knows what else going on.

I personally like Episode Two more than the majority of Half Life 2.I hope there's an official, or fan made patch for Episode One and Half Life 2 that will included the graphic updates in Ep2.
