I just wish it would get released on GOG already. I don't like owning old games on Steam as in my experience a lot of mods for older games won't work if the game is in Program Files, and sometimes they still won't work if Steam knows where the game is at all (Thief and Thief 2 are examples). So you end up having to install the game, copy the directory to some place Steam can't touch, then mod it there and play without Steam. This works for those two games because they're actually the GOG versions.
Have any non-Valve Source games ever been released outside Steam?

I feel like I should love this game but I can't get into it no matter how many times I try.
How far into it have you gotten? It took me a few tries to get into it but once you do, Jesus f***ing Christ it's hard to put it down. The story is my favorite out of any video game I have ever played and once your skills get up a bit higher the gameplay is great fun.
I bought it in a sale a while ago but I hear it's a broken and buggy mess. What do PCH?
People like to exaggerate. There's a community patch that fixes most of it. Still has a few bugs but is far from unplayable.
The moderation staff and system on this website are both absolutely terrible.
