Steam? Sorry, I am very new 2 half-life (maybe not so new, my friend has #1 on PS2) but thats not the point! And im sure my specs r fine......
You had to install Steam in order to use HL2.....
....aside from that if your not connected to the internet while playing it will sometimes cause the crash to main menu.

ur supposed 2 be connected to the net?!? :Censored: :staff:
heh yeah, Broadband too. The thing with Steam is not all of the games files are on your computer, a small amount of them have to be accessed through Steam via the internet.
Yeah you need to be connected to the internet to play most of the Steam games. And I'm pretty sure an internet connection is a requirement to install them (although I could be wrong).

That's why everyone seems to hate Steam. Consider it your introduction into the world of Valve marketing, since you seem new to the HL2 community...
It is one reason you do not need to have the CD in the drive to play the game. It also automaticaly updates the game and source files when any changes come out.
