Hah! You're lucky!

Back in the day we had dial-up, which crashed out if somebody else in the house lifted the phone ... or the wind was blowing ... or the stars were out of alignment.

I bought a copy of Half-Life back then, only to find it was this new-fangled "Steam app" thingy, and it wouldn't run until Steam had updated itself each time (do note that Half-Life was not an online game). Since it took considerably longer than the average "time to die" of dial up to download the steam update - and no, it didn't resume - I never got to play the game at all ...
