'ey, Gabe's gotta eat.
It's funny how everyone's accusing Valve of being moneygrubbing bastards for making the damn game free.
Seriously though, I bought it when it was $10, and yet, I don't regret it one bit!
One little extra bit of information you may want to consider though: Free vs. Premium
Those who've already bought it already have a Premium account .
That's just my opinion, no need to be an arsehole.
I've been inconsistently playing TF2 for over 3 years now, having been a convert to the Orange box back in 2008. Hearing about this announcement made me apprehensive at first, thinking of how many new players there would potentially be who wouldn't know how to play. However, I'm not that good so now I can pretend to be a noob. :P
Seriously though, I think it's a really cool decision. Valve knows they have enormous amounts of money, and instead of sitting on their mounds of cash and laughing they're giving something back.

got it and it rocks
I bought the Orange Box in mid-2008. So i have that 'Proof of Purchase' hat. Still got nothing of those new weapons except for the Tomislav. Neither played that new Payload map.

Never looked back on the god awful mess that is the console ports.
By the way, I'll allow the posting of TF2 vids. Especially to help those trying to get those Replay Achievements. Have some examples of my recordings over the past couple of years:
Soldier Replay Test
Bringing a Bottle to a Gun Fight
More Spy Shenanigans
I'm having an issue with servers. I can't seem to join one, it always says the valve server is full, and when I go searching for servers none appear. Anyone help?
What is are your opinions on idling? IMO it's fine as long as it's done as a server meant for it. While I was playing on one of those, I teamed up with a guy on the other team and we built each other teleporters to our bases so we could kill the AFK people. That was fun.

That must suck for those who just recently bought it.

I'll check out Team Fortress 2 sometime this week. I always play those mod severs in Team Fortress. A lot of players mod the **** out of their character. Like playing as Darth Maul, Batman from Batman Beyond and James Bond from Golden Eye. Man, good times good times.
I had a skin modification of the Scout once, to make him look like Travis Touchdown. Good times, good times.
Add me on Steam, because I might be playing TF2 from time to time now. Harrishun.
/me is practically pissing his pants waiting for morning when he can download TF2!
EDIT: Downloading it.. 11 F*CKING HOURS!!!
