    What should I buy? I beat all of them but I feel like replaying them. Or should I save my money or future PC games?

    Also, no orange box b/c I can save around 5$ if I buy them seperately.

    Portal isn't really worth a replay from the beginning, unless you're going to be playing it with custom user made level packs.

    Don't see why anybody would want to replay HL2: Ep1, either.

    It doesn't matter if it's a new account or not, it's just limited to once per unique Nvidia GPU.

    I don't like Half-Life at all, but Portal was so good I bought the Orange Box for it. So you should get Portal and don't get Half-Life 2 or the Episodes.

    If you do want to get them, you might as well wait for Episode 3. That way you can play all of them, and you'll probably be able to buy them in a cheap package.

    For re-playability, I would say Portal if you haven't done the achievements. And as someone said, the level packs practically add a new game for free.

    If you buy half life and portal separately you're going to spend about $40 when the orange box is $30.... From steampowered.com anyways...
