Half Life is an excellent game and very innovative. Although is an outstanding game the full price was not an option for me, but as you said it was for other players. When the Orange Box was released you could buy it for 20€, so that is what I did. Orange box had many extras not included in the standard game, but was still less expensive. Although half life is an outstanding quality product (bugs, extras, ...) the 50€ was a large profit margin for valve. The prof is orange box that had more extras and was cheaper. So my question is who benefits from this 50€ prices?
