i just bought h-l2 do i have to pay to play online?
i installed it and everything, played it but i cant figure out how to play online. i go through steam and to the server list but when i click on one it goes to a screen to purchase h-l2 and others, but at the bottom it says regester a product you already own, so i do that and it says you already have these games or something like that.
am i doing something wrong? or do i have to buy through them.
sorry if this sounds like a noob question but i have never played a pc game and i have def not played one online.
