Perfekt Past: Half-Life

Sure there had been shooters before Half-Life like Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, Star Wars: Dark Forces and later fully 3D games like Quake but they all stuck to the by then firmly established formula. Dark Forces moved things along a little by having the first jumping and ducking mechanics and the little known Terminator: Future Shock created the now standard free-look mouse and keyboard control combination but Half-Life was the first of a new breed of smart first person shooters. Right that's enough videogame history 101 lets break out the microscopes and dissect Valve's opus.

The story is too old to be commented.
