I really like Team Fortress 2, and would like to play the game that started it all. After some intense searching, I couldn't find it. Have any ideas where I can grab it from?

It is available for purchase from Steam, under the name Team Fortress Classic. At the time of writing, it costs $4.99/€4.99/£2.99 in the primary regions.

You also get it as part of the Half-Life 1 Anthology, the Half-Life Complete pack, and of course the Valve Complete Pack.

@JeffreyLin: The Orange Box doesn't contain TF1, only TF2. – Michael Madsen Jan 5 '13 at 22:31
The original is a mod for Quake. Team Fortress Classic is a remake of the original mod. – StrixVaria Jan 5 '13 at 22:48

The original Team Fortress is a Quake mod, of which version 2.8 is still available online here. There are also modded versions of the original, such as MegaTF and CustomTF.

Team Fortress Classic is a remake of the original Team Fortress for the Half-Life engine and as mentioned by Michael Madsen, is still sold on Steam. It uses different players models and some of the game mechanics have changed a bit.

Honestly, though, you're better off sticking with TF2.
