Half Life 2 Episodes 1 and 2 have been stuck in updating mode for a month.

Basically it has been updating at 0 % all the time since last month and the update meter never makes progress. Steam even has a topic on this, but Valve doesn't seem to care about this situation. Anyone having trouble playing the games because of this?

Ahhh, I've got them both uninstalled as worthless wastes of disk space (I've already beaten HL2, and Episode 1, and played all I cared to play of Episode 2)... that explains why I haven't had this problem... now if I cared to install it, I wonder what would happen?

Maybe you should try moving the files somewhere else and tricking steam into downloading the whole thing over and see if that cures it...or try turning updates off and see if that lets you play... Alternately, see if there's a beta you can opt into and see if that changes anything.

Try verifying the files. If not, try reinstalling.

if you attempt to play the game, the problem will correct itself.
