The Half-life 1 Anthology feels like a great collection, even though I'd love to see Half-life: Source included as well. But on the other hand it's very good even without it. It includes Half-life, Half-life: Blue Shift, Team Fortress Classic, and Half-Life: Opposing Force. Four classic games for a pretty good price. Half-life is a real classic. Although not looking as good as the modern shooters, it is the game which started the who whole Half-life hype. If you haven't played it yet, go play it instead of wasting time reading this. Then there's the Blue Shift, which expands and follows the original Half-life up. Opposing Force is another add-on to the Half-life game, but it's a standalone with its own story (related to the main one though). And finally Team Fortress, which is what was later to evolve into Team Fortress 2, probably the most popular online shooter on steam now. Four must-play games in my opinion, even if only to see howsome of the currently popular franchises started.
