You guys remember when disc 1 was needed to be in the drive to play a game? This caused me to lose disc 1. Well I have 4 out of the 5 discs for Fear and Half Life 2. (I'm also missing the serial keys). Any ways to play these games without re-buying them?

No... you're out of luck. Especially without the cd keys.

If you buy anything and lose it, you have to buy it again.

That is the incentive to NOT lose it.

Having said that, don't you have the code for HL2 that you can punch into Steam?

Oh wait . . . you lost the keys too?

Then . no, there's nothing you can do.

One very easy way. Not legally without a second buy (which would be on the second hand market NOT to the benefit of any creators for an old title)

You bought the game though so my conscience would be crystal. Do what you feel you gotta do

Thanks. I did buy these games but they were release day buys for me. So we are talking like 2004. While cleaning around I found these disc but both have disc 1 missing.

Funny Story. I was super excited about getting Half life 2 that as soon as I got out of high school (9th grade) I went to Frys and bought a copy. I took it home and could not play it because I did not have internet to install it. A month later I got internet and still could not play it since my GPU sucked. Then a month later I was able to play it after all the kids were done talking about it.
