What Source game do I need to play?

Ok. So I know i’ve been asking questions about the game, but I actually do not own it yet. I’ve been playing on a friend’s computer, but to the question.

What NPC’s, Weapons, etc… will I have if I purchase the game with Counter-Strike, but I don’t have Half life (2)?

I purchased the bundle on the Steam store, and I’m downloading now.

I know it sounds stupid, but I just don’t quite understand.

Without half life 2, you can’t play gmod at at.

but it only says it needs one Source Game.

You can play gmod without hl2. You will get all props and npcs.

Ok. I hope this is true, because I don’t have much money to spend and I sure as hell don’t want to waste it on something that won’t work properly.

You’ll have all the HL2 things and the CSS things. Other games’ props (e.g. TF2/Portal props) will not show up if you don’t have the game.

You’re so very wrong.

You can play GMod with just Counter-Strike: Source installed. I believe you will get the regular NPCs because when I first got GMod 7 I started off with CS:S.

But, I still suggest getting HL2 because not only do you get a kick-ass game, but you get some pretty sweet NPCs for your GMod :wink:

Here’s a list of games that will allow you to play Garry’s Mod. You only need to own one of them on the Garry’s Mod account.
