I don't remember exactly, but I assume it was probably for CS 1.6 as well since those were my CS and DoD days. It's funny; back then the general consensus of the community was "OMG FUCK STEAM, IT'S TERRIBLE." 11 years later the same people worship at the Alter of Gabe for the same piece of software.
Member since September 29, 2003. Long since the days of CS 1.6. Got the voucher for Half Life 2 when I bought the ATI 9800 XT. It's been THAT long?! Time flies.... I didn't realize steam issued me a 10 years of service badge.

I was aware of Steam at launch, but I absolutely refused to use it for the longest time because I thought that digital distribution was an easy way to get screwed out of owning anything. I eventually caved, though I didn't make my first store purchase until the 2010 summer sale, which coincided with a newly built gaming rig.
