Valve wants you to get ready for the release of it's VR-only title, Half-Life: Alyx, by playing the entire Half-Life series. They say that "the best way to enjoy the new game is to play through the old ones, especially Half-Life 2 and the episodes, so we want to make that as easy as possible". So from now until March, the entire Half-Life series is free to play on Steam.

That includes:
  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • Half-Life: Blue Shift
  • Half-Life 2
  • Half-Life 2: Episode One
  • Half-Life 2: Episode Two
  • Team Fortress Classic
Half-Life: Alyx has not been announced for Linux at this time. However, it's not unrealistic to expect that it will be available at some point, given Valve's history supporting Linux.
