Half-Life 2 Launches on Mac With 1984 Commercial

Steam launched on the Mac OS X platform earlier this month, and today Mac users are finally graced with the opportunity to play one of the finest PC games of all time without having to Boot Camp into Windows.

Valve today launched Half-Life 2 for the Mac and is putting it up for sale at 30 percent off at $6.99. Of course, we recommend that you pay $20.99 for the equally discounted Orange Box bundle and get Half-Life 2, Episodes One and Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2. It was the best value in gaming when it launched at more than twice the price and it's an even better value now.

To celebrate the new release, Valve has released a new teaser ad that recreates the famous 1984 Apple ad but with fresher faces. Check it out below.

    I thought that, given the current state of Apple, the 1984 commercial was comically ironic.

    The Valve version of this commercial is just kind of depressing. Valve has always been so encouraging of the open source and modding community... and now they're developing for Apple. If the FCC were to make a platform, it'd be the Mac.
