Well a friend of mine gave me his copy of HL2 to play since he finished it. Will I have a problem using the cd key and all with it with a new account? Im clueless to steam since I dont play anything they have anymore.

Yes, basically the only account that can use that CD-Key is his. I wouldn't really recommend using the key too. Valve might even disable it thinking it's being shared :(

Damn I knew it had to be some sort of lame scheme. Theres no way to disable it or something? I just want to play the single player, I dont care for cstrike any.

Tell your friend the only way you can play the game is with his login. He gave you the game so he might as well give you that too.

Yea, I was just wondering if I could just not use his account. O well.

Install it at your house
Have your friend come over and log into his account
Steam will update the game and you wont half to play online anymore
Dont think you will have to log in then for singleplaer
