Among the best values in gaming... anyone at all interested in the games would be nuts to not pick this up.

I also note, with some irony, that this is now just as much as Portal: Still Alive costs to download by itself.

I think most of us picked it up during the Thanksgiving sales, but thanks.

Worth it, just for Portal alone.

they did this to match ToysRUS's sale price. That said, this game (or collection of) is a steal at 14.99 new.

Man, what about us that paid 60 at launch? :lol:

Crazy how often this game is constantly going on sale.

I got it for PC a while back but only played through Portal. Now that I have a 360 I'm tempted but I know it'll drop $5 more as soon as I submit the order.

Grr I don't know what to combine this with to get free shipping. And just two hours ago I ordered Prince of Persia Fallen King on DS. I tried to cancel it so I could combine it with this and get free shipping, but it already says "Item shipping soon" and won't allow me to cancel. Lame.

Excellent deal for those who don't have it.

Bought it during a B2G1F sale at TRU a year ago, and it was worth the money even then.

In for one. Also I suggest combining it with a book, I just got Guns of the South by Harry Turtledove (that dude's an awesome author plus I love alt-history).

My buddy almost swung at me when I told him what I'm getting this for -- he paid $30 in-store about a month ago and thought he got a deal.

OB contains the original full game of Half Life 2 right? I just installed HL2 on my piece of garbage PC and would rather play it on 360.

Anyone who doesn't have this already and has even a sliver of good taste should get this.

It was worth it for 60, if you don't have this buy it

stating the obvious a bit, but yes. Full HL2 plus eps one and two, team fortress, and (the real value of the deal) Portal.

All of that could've been found out by looking on Amazon, OR READING THE BOX

Bought it last year for full price. Played Portal last december, played HL2 for the first time a couple weeks ago, and playing though Epi. 1 at the moment.

AWESOME DEAL. Quite possibly the most enjoyment I've ever gotten from a single home console disc.
