Half-Life fans, get ready to wet your pants because this my friends is the best tribute to this classic game. James Benson had a vision and this trailer is the result of that. It clearly is mind-blowing. Someone should definitely hire this man. If you are a die-hard gamer, you really need to see this. It has 1998 graphics, fair enough. But still, it’s ‘F’ unbelievable. Just watch it, it’s pure art!"
