Does Half-Life 2 have to be played over the internet or can I play it
just on my system?

Most games, including Half Life 2 have an offline game with a story/plot
called a "campaign". In fact, several campaign walkthroughs are available
for those Half Lifers who get stuck. :-)

It does need an internet connection at least initially to register, and
decrypt the files, however once that's done you can put steam into offline
mode so you won't need an internet connection to play.
