Title
It's still unbelievable how The Orange Box exists. At the same time, three of what were (and still are) some of the greatest games of all time were released alongside each other, along with two games that were already out as a bonus, but they too were some of the greatest games of all time! There's not a single thing to miss out on in this collection. Half Life 2 alongside Episode One & Two are still unbelievably good games that still hold up, Portal is an undeniable classic puzzle game, and Team Fortress 2 still holds up with it's amazing combat loop that still hasn't been beat in the team shooter genre.

Without context, hearing of the existence of this collection would be hard to believe already due to the abundance of 10/10 games in it, but what's even harder to believe is that all of these games were made by the same company, which is quite the inspiration.

Title
Really not much to add, it contains 3 games that are considered classics, Half Life 2 with its expansions offers one of the most revolutionary 1st person shooters and is still incredibly fun to play. Portal is a solid puzzle game and one of the most innovative games of its time, even though it offers little replay and is short, it still is a good experience during the first playthrough. Team Fortress 2 is a game I never played, but many see it as one of the best multiplayer games and it is still going strong today, and is a precursor to games like Overwatch. The games stand their own and don't really need to be reviewed again, this is a good compilation of Valves best games.

      some collections add very useful features that make them an arguably better option to play those games, if it annoys you that much just exclude them
