Default Re: Who will buy Half Life 2 on Steam or DVD?

$3+$3+$70= $76 to play HL2, save $48
Yeah but then only one of us can install the game

He only has room for one CDROM because of all his case modding, and that space is being used by a burner.

And its not really saving $48 when I can just buy the game on CD for $50.

Believe me, if there was some way to work this out and get the DVD version, I would. But it costs too much and requires things I dont have, so Im going with the CD version
