Hey, I just beat Half Life and loved it. Now I'm looking around to get Half Life 2 and this seems like the best deal. I've downloaded both the Half Life 2 and Portal demos off of Steam and they both ran fine, so I'm assuming I won't have any trouble running the full games. But before I go out and buy this, should I play Blue Shift and the other expansions to Half Life? Or is playing the original Half Life all I need to get the full story?

Ok, I just bought this at best buy. I put in the CD, and registered the CD key code so why am I downloading the games from Steam instead of installing them from the disc? And why is "Half Life 2: The Lost Coast" and "Serious Sam HD: Second Encounters" on my list of games currently downloading? I'm confused.

Ugh. Now whenever I exit ANY of the games included in this compilation it won't let me re-enter it. So if I play Portal, then exit and try to play Half Life 2 it says "Cannot run more than one session (or instance, I can't remember) of this game at once". I have no idea what its talking about because whenever I exit any of the games I simply hit the escape key and click on the exit option. What's wrong and how do I fix it? I'm playing this in offline mode if that makes a difference.
