I was watching some videos for HL2 DM and i wanted to know if it was stand alone or do i need Half-Life 2 to play it? I ask this cause on steam when i go into browse games it has HL2 DM for $10. So is it stand alone?

If you buy Half-Life 2, you get it for free.
If you decide not to buy Half-Life 2, you can buy it as a stand alone.
If you buy HL2 you'll get Counter-Strike Source, third party mods and the great game itself. So I'd recommend Half-Life 2.
Also as far as I know Half-Life 2: Deathmatch is no availalbe as a stand alone in retail. Only with Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life 2 or Half-Life 2 - Game of the Year Edition.
I didn't make it!
So, let me get this straight, I just re-installed the game after a long hiatus. I see where I have C.S. Source and H.L. 2 installed and I can play both...but, when I highlight H.L. Deathmatch it won't load.....I remember when I first loaded this game H.L. 2 Deathmatch was in the options menu........I just wanna know how I can play it.
You might want to right click on the game, choose propertys option and then on last bar, try veryfieing game's content.
