    Interesting mine is legacy also. Where can you find out when you created an account I can't seem to find a date and can't remember.

    If you created an account just to buy HL2, then this will be accurate:

    https://store.steampowered.com/account/licenses

    I'm getting old :eek:

    Btw I'd totally sell mine if someone offered me a decent amount for it.

    Decent wrt the amount and type of games contained.

    Yeah i have had a few messages over the years from people wanting to buy my steam account from me, but i don't understand what the big deal is with older steam accounts, mine is from 2003.

    I'm guessing it's because your profile is public, if you set it to private then people can't go looking through your list of owned games.

    Somehow I did not carry on the same account that I used to get HL2 on, sadly, so mine's not that old tbh. 2011 I think. But yeah, HL2 made me get that steam account.
    Oh, the outrage back then for forcing you to have a steam account (compared to HL1 ofc)... :rolleyes:

    Just imagine what worth the account 42069 might have these days... or even 69420

    Ohh gosh.. Sin Episode 1.. I wish they would continue that.

    What does it mean by Complimentary btw? I would have thought it would be "Retail", I mean, My HL2 copy is the box edition with Alyx on the cover, so it's a retail copy.

    ^^Yeah it was supposed to be the next big thing, what happened to it. lol

    If have no idea why they are showing as Comp because they were all bought on steam and i don't think you could buy the likes of Rag doll Kung fu anywhere else but steam at its launch.

    Exactly!!!!!!!

    *edit*

    Looked it up on wiki, the studio "Ritual Entertainment" was purchased in 2007 by MumboJumbo, which then messed with Sin Episode.. which was going to have 9 parts.. after the purchase lots of the people working on the game left the studio.

    Yeah it's sad Sin Episodes never made it past part 1, it's a cool Source Engine shooter.

    I wanted to see more of next gen Elexis! Literally :p

    Actually made a vid of arena mode

    Something to do with a database transfer steam did many years ago. From what I can find, many games purchased early on were marked as "complimentary". Normally it means you got the game in some kind of "free to keep" promotion.

    ^^^Well that would explain it as i most certainly rememebr pre-ordering HL2 silver version from steam for about £25 as i think you got CSS with it, and DOD.....and i do remember waiting almost a week until i could get steam to activate it, everyone remember that nightmare at HL2 launch. lol
