Yes .........If you have PAYPAL you select it in the payment method. After you pay through PAYPAL you can immediately download the games and goto town. The download through STEAM is pretty fast depending on your connection. You may also have to download the STEAM download manager if you don't have it. It is actually kinda useful. Good luck. I just finished HL2 and I am starting EP.1 .........Really good game !!!!!! I am gonna get CSS next.

You can buy it at the store. The version I bought (with the G-Man on front) came with CS:S.

OK, here are your options.

1. Look for Half-Life 2 GOTY edition in stores.

2. Get steam (www.steampowered.com) then get the Christmas pack (here: http://www.steamgames.com/v/index.ph...ubId=201&cc=US ) This will give you all you want plus Episode 1.

3. For $10 more, the Source Premiere pack will give you Half-Life: Source and Day of Defeat Source.

4. Newest version of Garry's Mod is $10 off of Steam. Alternatively, you can get Gmod 9 for free, although it's harder to find mods for. To see what it can do, go to www.facepunchstudios.com or www.phwonline.com or best of all www.waroftheservers.com (on June 24)

As the above people said, you can use Paypal if you have one. Also tell your mother that Valve has been a very reputable company, and I have bought a number of games off of Steam. Not sure if you'll convince her, but I suppose she has a right to be paranoid)

FYI to those who don't want to buy on Steam:

You can purchase any of the Half-Life games in store, then grab Steam when you get home and input the key. Don't bother installing from the disc's, just put in the key. It will ask you to put in one of the discs for verification. Then it will download the rest from Valve's network.

If you're unsure how to do this:

Grab steam @ http://www.steampowered.com/v/index....steamnow&cc=CA

Install it, create an account (put the info somewhere safe), log in. Click the "My Games" tab, then the "Activate a product on Steam". Follow the directions.

You can do this for ANY of the Source engine Valve games you find in store, AFAIK. Some of the third party one's allow you to do this as well, but not all of them.

Anyone tried this mod?
FakeFactory's Cinematic Mod (v4.0 Full)

Currently downloading via a torrent, taking a while but it looks really good.
