    You know. Sometimes I am really glad I don't buy any Valve games.

    On paper it sounds like a good deal, but most people already have all or most of these games. Certainly there is nothing here that begins to be worth the extra $50. Especially when my L4D pre-order cost me £20 ($32).

    Just played though the first movie of Left 4 Dead. Worth every penny. And TBH the percentage of people that pre-ordered left 4 dead but don't own any other valve games must be very small.

    Honestly the only games from that pack i don't have are the early hl games and tbh they're not worth $50. So who doesn't own the orange box and went on to pre-order l4d?

    They probably figure that if you pre ordered left 4 dead that early you already own at least half of the valve games already.

    Valve are just flogging a dead horse now. They did the same thing with Half Life 2 on PC, then Orange Box etc.

    It's getting a little long in the tooth now.

    You sir, are missing out on some of the best games EVER!

    I must admit this is the second time they have done something like this. But everything else they do I love. They still beat EA any day of the week.

    really Harry.. I think you're making a big deal about nothing .. so Valve made a new pack of games that cost twice as much .. I don't see anything foolish about paying less than half for a brand new game ..especially as most people pre-ordering (I'd wager) already have a majority of those games

    Because the people who preordered L4D for $50 don't already have all the Valve games they want

    I beg to differ.

    I bought HL1, and yes, that was good. That said, the appeal of the games they cough out has gone down since that game. That's not to say they're bad games exactly, just that they do not appeal to me. I realise that my post came across a bit.. "Valve suck" but that's not what I meant :B

    I don't understand. I saw this on steam at least a week ago.... Actually the same time I pre-ordered if I remember correctly, which was three days before the demo came out.

    Besides there's a lot of junk in there. Seriously, the valve Day of Defeat, Ricochet, HL: Deathmatch, TFC, CS:Condition Zero, good luck finding servers for those games. As much as I loved (I mean really loved) TFC, you can't play it anymore. Last time I checked on servers was about a year ago. I think there were 4 and all had mostly bots. And DoD died when valve took over let alone when the source version came out.

    Besides L4D, I've already got every Valve game. I imagine most people that pre-ordered have more than a couple as well.

    I just looked at the contents of the Complete Pack and guess what... the only thing I don't actually own yet is Left 4 Dead.

    I already have every valve game (except CS:CZ). Hell i even have a few extra copies of games, but this would be good for a new steam member...but then why would they have per-ordered it at all. Please save this article for when people complain about Valve not giving and discounts on old games. They have been offering the valve complete pack for around $100 for a few years now and they just keep adding games to it.
