Hmm, I have had some annoyances with HL2, but not quite enough that I'm willing to get a refund for it (although I WAS extremely disapointed by the "collector's edition" of the game...what a waste of money). It is something to consider though...almost might be worth it to get a refund and use the money to buy the Silver account from Steam, now that I see how crappy the retail versions are. Wait...if you send them back the game...they unlink it from your Steam account, right?

Yep. I assume you need to send in your CDKEY,etc.

My logic is that HL2 is crappy on my system now, and there is going to be a fun legal battle between vivendi and valve this summer. I'll wait until HL2 is available Steam-free. And if its not, oh well.

****, I assume original proof of purchase implies a sales receipt and not the barcode on the box.

Funny how this shows up about 100 days after the release date of the game. Anyone who bought the game the week it came out is screwed ;)

Not that I mind... I havent been playing it much lately, but I still think its a great game.

100 days? November 17th to December 17th, December 17th to January 17th, January 17th to January 28th...I'm only counting 71 days there, CaptN.

I wonder what kind of problems people have had. I have the retail Collector's Edition and got it for christmas. I haven't had one crash or problem here. I keep hearing about problems, but it's a miracle how it never happens to me. :eek:

Me too. I have the same "collecters edition" and the only problem I've had is the stuttering (which is a widespread problem). One problem which now after I tweeked my comp a bit, is hardly a good reason for me to turn over my copy.

I did also think the "collecters edition" was a slight waste, but you did get one more "game" with it (I mean HL2: DM and not CS:S) and I happen to like the shirt. This little "guide" that came with it though was a waste, I thought you'd get the whole thing. Too much to expect I guess.
