    Steam games are normally just download games.

    With Half Life 2, there was a collectors edition, where you got a cap, some posters and other stuff sent to you, but the game stays a download.

    If you preordered it, you can already download the games and play Team Fortress 2 in an open beta.

    The other games will be on your harddisc in an encrypted format. When the releaseday is there, Steam will automatically get the decryption key and will unlock your game right away.
