Good

Ok Calm down about all the games

Namco Museum titles give you like 10 games and no one drools voraciously over them...

Firstly, Half Life. I played HL2 on PC and never did get around to playing the expansions. I find that the control schematics don't really work all that well on the console. Specifically all the time on vehicles with shooting. I really only replayed it for the gamer points having not been such a big fan that I would replay it again so soon. As an aside why can the gravity gun move a car but no toss a human combine body til the end?

Secondly, the expansions. I, personally, did not like how they went with the story. I was rather pleased when the seemingly killed off Alyx at the end of HL2 - it seemed a rather dark twist for the game to take. Other than that it's HL2 again. (At this point I haven't started in on the second expansion.

Now for Portal. I love this game. It was one of the main reasons I got the title. It's too short. Basically it felt like half a game. It's fun and simple to learn the controls and the only downside is that too many of the puzzles are easy to figure out.

As for TF2 I haven't logged in yet, so maybe playing this will make this game amazing - who knows.

Everyone with a gold live account needs to buy this just for TF2. It is a rediculouly fun and addictive multiplayer game. I am enjoying it more than Halo 3 mutiplayer. Plus you get Half-Life 2, Episode 1, Episode 2 and the very interesting action puzzle game Portal. This is the best deal on 360.
