I think you can enable it in the advanced options. Then the ~ will work.

Actually, here is what you must do to enable the console: Right-click the Half-Life 2 icon on your desktop (or whereever it is), select Properties. Where it says 'Target,' go to the very end of the directory and type the following in (or cut & past from this post it's more convenient): -dev -console

Example: "C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 220[COLOR=Red]-dev -console[/COLOR]

Beware though, that you cannot access the shortcut manually by going through C drive, Program Files, etc.; you must access the game via the desktop shortcut.
