Default HL2 Help

OK, i have dial-up, and i am trying to play HL2, is there any way i can play without getting online, mabey like a crack or something? You have to download stuff, which takes forever, and i don't always have internet access.

You can purchase the game, and just put the cd in without downloading off the internet.

you dont have to download the updates if you dony wish to. In the play games window just right click the game of your choice and choose properties and then simply change the automatic download settings so it doesnt auto download

you just have to authorize it once and you are done. It shouldnt take too long to do. You dont have to download any of the large updates.

yeah most people hate steam but atleast you will only have to do it once. And however long it takes you is worth is cuz HL2 is the greatest game of all time.
