Due to the nature of the DRM that Half-Life 2 leverages, one cannot simply treat Half-Life 2 like any other legacy game and install it conventionally. The game will forcefully update upon being installed, and this is not a trivial update, especially if one plans on matching it with old equipment.
So, long have I been wondering about how to recreate the experience that some hundreds of thousands shared back in 2004. The obvious solution that springs into mind involves performing a certain nefarious act, but resorting to such methods seems absurd when I have my original optical disc right here.
Do not refrain from refusing to stop hindering yourself from the opposite of watching nothing other than that which is by no means porn.
