The Orange Box Turns 10: Shacknews Remembers Vanilla Team Fortress 2
It's led to memorable bloopers or highlights, long before Twitch ever set up shop. For those that spent night after night on a TF2 server, 2Fort was a magical place to unwind and just relax, practicing with each of the game's classes in a casual environment, and worrying more about having fun than actually capturing the intelligence.
Valve As it turns out, the Shacknews Chatty community has some fond memories of the original vanilla Team Fortress 2. And it actually involved the playing against an actual team of Valve developers.
Here's an anecdote from Chatty poster NastyJack: It was my first experience with intense, seriously-coordinated play while still playing in a fun atmosphere. Easily some of the best times I've ever had gaming. Want a look at how our Chatty regulars did against bonafide Valve employees in their own game?
Let's watch the video below. Just beware of some NSFW language. The PC version of the game would soon receive individual class updates, via Steam, keeping the game alive for years to come.
Later updates, like the Mann-Conomy Update and Manniversary Update, would not only keep the game alive, but would also change the face of video games forever. This is not a hyperbolic statement. The free-to-play model, the Steam Wallet, Steam Workshop, the cosmetic hats, microtransactions and so many other game-changing elements that would find their way into video games for the next decade first originated with Team Fortress 2.
But what about the folks that just want the original game itself?
Before the weaponry that created seismic shifts in the game's balance? Before people started decking out their characters in silly hats? Is there a way to still get that back? The obvious answer is the original Xbox iteration of The Orange Box. TF2 was released back when console updates were an inefficient proposition.
Why wait for the long Microsoft certification process when Valve could simply go through its own PC gaming architecture and deliver updates in a timelier manner? Why spend thousands of dollars for individual console updates when, again, Steam was right there?
That's why TF2 on Xbox never went beyond vanilla, so it's still there, for anyone interested. As for PC users, a nostalgia movement has surfaced, with a non-profit community project looking to spotlight Team Fortress 2 as it used to be.
TF features a special Steam overlay dedicated to helping users find the best vanilla TF2 servers around the world. In addition to helping players, it also helps server owners that are looking to get their server out to the masses and assists them with tools, such as free monitoring.
The site has not started taking donations as of yet, but will soon allow the public to donate to their efforts. Today, Shacknews salutes 10 years of Team Fortress 2, remembering the game as it first began. Our Chatty community recently weighed in with their memories, which can be found in this thread.

He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. As Soldier comes to inspect him, he hurriedly throws away his cigarette Heavy takes so long deciding a move that Medic flips the board.
Look at Soldier when Medic's shield is revealed. The others are covering their faces. Soldier covered his crotch. Sniper and Scout pretty much strolling along behind as Heavy, Soldier, and Pyro carve the way forward. They bro-fist each other because they have nothing to do.
The other team has Pyro on communications duty. Scout is visibly annoyed. Scout muttering "Please let there be pants" over and over as he sees some bare legs standing in the middle of a blood covered floor.

In no particular order: He jumps through a wall, leaving an Australia-shaped hole! He uses Scout as a springboard just to punch the Yeti, leading to the aforementioned explosion! And doesn't seem to want to acknowledge the fact that means he won't get another. Scout's reaction to pretty much everything Saxton does is one of sheer terror. Saxton Hale recounts everything others said to discourage him from building Yeti Park which amounted to how life will find a way and the creatures will eventually break free.
It's not like he's going off to do anything brave either; he just runs away. Update Day Three has a picture of Pyro hugging Hale thank-you for the new weapons in a super-girly way. It adds to it that Pyro is significantly shorter than Hale.
In the text, Valve once again dodges the question of whether Pyro is male or female.
