Default Steam Games And Half Life Series

I noticed that after i installed all the half Life 2 stuff, it only shows HL2 Episode 1 in the Vista Game Browser.

I open it and i get the steam launcher with my games.

I was hoping for HL2, HL2 Lost Coast and ect.

Is this normal for this install or what?

I dragged the shorcuts for HL2 into the browser but i don't get the boxart with other than the HL2 Episode boxart.

Any suggetions for this to get tham all or is this cuz the games are embedded into steam?

It's normal Mr Man. I only have Ep1, before I reinstalled Vista I had two Ep1s. Is it really necessary to have boxart? Shouldn't you be gaming instead of looking at boxart?

I noticed that episode 1 downloaded. Isn't that a paid game cuz i own the DVD for it but it downloaded it for me from Steam.

When you install it off the DVD, it and Steam become one. So it will act like you downloaded it. So you now have the choice. DVD or Download. If you have the bandwidth, just download. Just set and forget. Like a heatseaking Bigman Javelin pocket rocket.
