I think all these games have been split for well by now. Few weeks ago there was still the winter holiday pack that included all Half-Life 2 based games and CS:S I think. Your best bet is to wait on another promotion, also I think that current GOTY version at retail has the CS:S in.

if you go to www.steampowered.com you can see all the different packages thru steam. there are a few with CS:S in it, in fact i think almost all of them have css in 'em cause im looking for plain hl2. i already bought the css, dods and hl2dm package hehe but im tryin to buy it in the store... last time i was in target, they let me buy the css package only by telling my moms birth date, im only 14 kekeke

Note: Do not buy the Half-Life 2 box that has Gordon Freeman and Alyx on the front. Only buy Half-Life 2 GOTY Edition, plain edition does not include CS:S. Around Christmas time Valve released this new box that does not include CS:S. I bought the Christmas pack, which does hold HL:S, HL Deathmatch, HL2, HL2: Deathmatch, CS:S, and Episode One. If you find a Valve Holiday 2006 pack, buying that would be a nice choice if you do not have a majority of those games.

Or like the guy above me, go to steam's website and look at the packs you can purchase.

I thought the christmas pack was only availavle on Steam? From what I've seen every GOTY edition has same cover art with Freeman and Alyx.

Here's the HL2 box I am warning you about, I can't find GOTY edition anymore that's why I bought the Holiday 2006 pack.

Half-Life 2 box to avoid: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16832128131

Valve Holiday 2006 Pack: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16832130204

Oh, if you buy the Holiday 2006 Pack and you already have a Steam account the opening menu when you put the disc in will not say (Install Holiday 2006 pack) it says re-install I believe. Just click that and it will install the games like it should.

If you are having second thoughts on whether or not you should buy it, it is worth it. I can play so many fun mods now.

Interesting, these are all editions that were available in Poland: Half-Life 2: hl2box150.jpg Half-Life 2 Collector's Edition: 9330053_561a91f77a_m.jpg Half-Life 2 Game of the Year Edition: 76559-HL2GYpcPFTpegiUKENG.jpg Half-Life 2: Episode One: 79245-HL2EP1pcPFT.jpg It's funny, it looks like the age requirements went down for Half-Life 2 in Poland, as these are exactly the boxes which were released here. Also, I wish we'd have this version of collector's edition, it looks very cool: B0002X7Y2C.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpghl2_box.jpg Content though appears to be the same, except for CD case isntead of DVD box for disc storing.
