I don't follow. How did you go from having played Thief 1&2 and wanting to play Fallout 3 to wanting to buy the Orange Box? Those titles have just about nothing in common with each other beyond the first person perspective.

1: There's almost nothing to learn. Point on enemy, click on enemy. OK, it's a little more involved in that but Half-Life 2 and TF2 are just plain shooters. Portal is a little more brainy, but the game starts out simple and introduces new obstacles one by one.

2: Yes.

3: Have you played Thief - Deadly Shadows? If not, you should.

Are you saying that you want to test Orange Box because it's an FPS, just because Fallout 3 can be played in FPS?

First person shooters is something you get better at the more you play. There's nothing more to it than practice, practice, practice. If HL2 is too difficult for you, try to lower the difficulty setting.

Yes. More than enough.

If you want an experience that is somewhat similar to F3 open environment, I would have picked a game such as Far Cry, Crysis or S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

But do not forget to play Portal.

I'm quite sure I've seen Portal here stand-alone already. I think the last time I saw it was in an Gamestop or/and EBGames shop.

Yes, Episode 2 and Portal are available in retail now. I believe run about $14.99 if you buy them seperately.
