Half-Life Turns 10, Valve Celebrates Anniversary Giving it Away for 98¢

Today, Half-Life turns 10 years old. What started off as a humble beginning for Valve software, using dated technologies licensed from id Software, now stands as one of the greatest PC games ever made. At 10, Half-Life enjoys a lavish Metacritic score of 96%, an aggregate of all known participant reviews.

To celebrate the occasion, Valve is giving away copies of Half-Life via Steam for 98¢ (US $ 0.98), to symbolize the year 1998. This offer ends 12:01 pm PST on November 21. Visit Steam Games for more details.


Go Dr. Freeman!

Definitely on my Top 10 list of all time games. Played it again a few months back and had a ball. I wish some of the modern FPS were as creative as Half-Life was for its time.

they should have sold it for 96 cents, and used that as an advertising thing.

I'm buying it! I loved the HL2 series so I want to play the original. If its anything like Doom and Quake from those times, then it'll be great.

Before that, I had carmageddon. Ace game...
