Video Awesomeness Valve Edition

This Week’s edi­tion of Video Awe­some­ness will be on Valve! For those of you inter­est­ed in the give­away I’ll high light some of the quin­tes­sen­tial titles list­ed that have made Valve what it is today!
Start­ing off the list is the game that made the house of Gabe Hewell and Mike Har­ring­ton known as VALVE what it is today. Released in 1998 to make a horned-rimmed glass wear­ing, crow-bar wield­ing sci­en­tist a total bad ass is HALF-LIFE! Here’s a fan made trail­er which is total bad-ass:

Next on the Valve list released in 1999, intro­duc­ing the world to the sweet­ness that was Team Fortress Clas­sic most­ly team based mul­ti­play­er shoot­er this game tru­ly lives up to the word… Clas­sic! Check it out:

Anoth­er great mul­ti­play­er clas­sic released in 2000 that was orig­i­nal­ly a mod for Half-life was Counter Strike. It to is a team based mul­ti­play­er shoot­er but with a more seri­ous edge that many games try to emu­late today check out this clip:

Then in 2004 came Half-Life 2 and the mod­ding com­mu­ni­ty went crazy with the PC ver­sion! This was what a sequel should be from sto­ry to graph­ics of the time this was one of the best check out the trail­er:

In 2007 the Orange Box was released for the PC and intro­duc­ing some of Valve’s biggest titles to the con­soles which includ­ed Half-life 2 , episode 1 and episode 2, Team Fortress 2 and a lit­tle game cre­at­ed by a cou­ple of grade stu­dents known as…Portal here’s a Por­tal video because the por­tal gun rocks:

Now in 2008 the zom­bie Apoc­a­lypse hit the video game world with Left for dead fea­tur­ing some of the great­est co-op game play, unique vs mul­ti­play­er modes and one of the most dia­bol­i­cal AIs The Direc­tor which con­trols the zom­bie hordes in the game. Here’s some video of the zom­bie mas­sacre:

In 2009 the Zom­bie Apoc­a­lypse con­tin­ued to the sur­prise of every­one with Left for Dead 2 which again was just as good if not bet­ter than its pre­de­ces­sor with engag­ing co-op, vs modes AND an even more devi­ous Direc­tor AI this game will keep you zom­bie killin to the wee hours of the morn­ing! Check it out:

Now I didn’t cov­er all of the games in the Com­plete Pack but I think I show cased some of the best. So enter the give-a-way and win the awe­some­ness that is Valve!!!!!
