I guess that would defeat the purpose of Steam but I'm a hands-on type of gal. I would love to have all the HL games and Peggle extreme.

I'm not sure about Peggle, but I know that Half Life 2 and the 2 episode packs are available through retail as discs.

That's really cool, I don't have many of those games (except the half-life 2 games)!

Will the older games run under Vista 64?  If so this will be a great way to pick some games I missed along the way.

 When i've purchased Half-Life games off Steam, that include games I already own, I've been able to give my duplicates to someone else (I've been nice and just gave them away) however, I think if I get Left 4 Dead via this pack, I might re-sell the extra games as I have all of them (except for Peggle Extreme)

Actually, according to Steam's support, you can only gift duplicates in very specific circumstances - https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=4502-TPJL-2656

 It may be possible to gift them since the Orange Box is included with the all in one package, but I'm not sure. Either way, its still nice to see them expand gifting duplicates beyond the Orange Box (which was the first package they started this with)

 To brc1980 above I'd suggest searching the Steam forums for threads regarding Vista support. From what I've heard some people the games run fine while others have had issues.

 

Lastly, why isn't this listed under the Gaming News section as well as the main news?

Will that kill my Comcast Bandwidth cap? Or will I get a Cease and Desist notice because I'm downloading so much at once? ISP CEO's and advisors don't think about crap like this...or maybe they do so they can charge customers more...whatever, it's a cool package I think since I don't have any of those games except for Half-Life 1.

Have you already gotten a nastygram from your ISP? Then you have nothing to worry about.

Of course! Companys want a cut of the profit, so they enforce these low bandwidth caps so they can make money.

They have always offered all of there games in a giant pack for $99.99. They simply added Left 4 Dead into the pack.
