Deals – Valve Complete Pack For $100 Includes Left 4 Dead

I’ve been impressed by Steam for a long time, and am always more than happy to purchase a new title via the service. I think Valve really found that balance between giving the customers the freedom to actually play their purchased games when and where they want, and still combating piracy. Honestly, in order for a service like this to work, it not only has to be something people don’t mind using, but something they actually enjoy using. Of course, having excellent package deals on your games doesn’t hurt things either. Every now and then you’ll find a huge bundle of games for a good price, and right now is one of those times.

The Valve Complete Pack was recently made available, which combines 22 different Valve titles. The $99.99 price tag does seem a bit steep, until you look at everything you’re getting. Sure, you’ll see all of the titles from The Orange Box, but even its value pales in comparison to what you’re getting here. Hit the jump for a complete listing of games.

  • Counter-Strike
  • Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
  • Counter-Strike: Source
  • Day of Defeat
  • Day of Defeat: Source
  • Deathmatch Classic
  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life 2
  • Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
  • Half-Life 2: Episode One
  • Half-Life 2: Episode Two
  • Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
  • Half-Life Deathmatch: Source
  • Half-Life: Blue Shift
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • Half-Life: Source
  • Left 4 Dead
  • Peggle Extreme
  • Portal
  • Ricochet
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Team Fortress Classic

I’m sure that you can look through that list and pick out several titles that you already own, and thus conclude that the $99.99 price tag isn’t worth it. However, you may have overlooked Left 4 Dead, which is a $50 game itself. So just imagine getting every other Valve game for just $50, now that’s a deal. So what about the games you already own, do you just get two copies for yourself? No, with Steam, you can simply send the duplicate games to one of your friends with a Steam account. I don’t know about you, but I know a couple people on my list that wouldn’t mind playing Portal on Christmas morning.
