    ive got the orange box and i was wondering is it worth playing through half life 2 before playing the other episodes ,i mean will it spoil the game if i start playing the other episodes while playing the half life 2 or are the episodes different ,does it matter where you start.

    Definitely play HL2 first, not just because of the story but because it is still one of the greatest games of all time.

    As you may have gathered, play HL2 first!

    The episodes are a continuation, so you may not get some things if you haven't played through the main game (or, some things will make more sense if you've played the original).

    Out of curiousty, why would you want to play through the episodic conent before finishing the full game? While the episodes are really good (especially episode 2), they're not a touch on the experience of Half Life 2. Just in case you need a fourth person to clarify, do yourself a favour and play them through in the correct order; the story deserves it. :thumbsup:
