Hi guys first let me just say I am not trying to pirate anything. I buy a lot of old games at the flea market and play them no problem (well not TOO many problems) but I am struggling with this one
I have a physical Copy of The Orange Box (Hafe Life 2 Ep 2) and I can't install it. I do have a Steam Account, though I don't really have a use for it, and it will not let me redeem the key.
When I try to install from the game from the disk I have the same problem as it will not accept the key. I also have another old Game called Counter Strike Condition Zero which Steam would not let me redeem the key as it has been used but I installed that on my XP rig and it runs fine anyway.
As I own the physical product, I am sure I am on the moral high ground when it comes to playing the contents of the disks I bought, and in fact EU law even says that is the case.
So how do I play the game? Pics to show I do have the physical game..
And as an aside, even games that are a only a few years old now will be retro games faster than you thought, So what is going to happen in 20 years time with the retro gaming scene if we can't buy and play old games?
