| | Re: how big is Counter-Strike: Source?
I'm not sure at all, as I bought a hardcopy DVD of HL2 and installed it from there, but you have to bear in mind that there have been quite a few updates and new maps for Counterstrike: Source since it's original release. Although having said that, 3.6gb does seem on the excessive size. The only explanation I can think of is that it may be designed so that people can buy and run it even if they don't have Half Life 2, so it may also include the Source engine to allow independent operation. That's just a wild, uneducated guess though, don't quote me on that or anything.
