I am definatly going to buy it, it wouldnt cross my mind to warez it. I find that disrespectfull to a good game dev company like valve. I only warez sucky or dumb games that I atleast want to play once, but thats it.
maybe the topic should read "Will you BUY hl2?"
thats a whole different question with all the warezing and p2p and stuff going on now
i for one will buy it for sure, but that doesnt mean everyone will
guess many think "why buy a game when i an get it for free?"
i buy games that i think are worth it.. mostly because i want to support the company, and also couse i dont feel like a criminal when i buy the game
and i love reading thru gamemanuals
