Half-Life 2’s Most Magical Moment

Well, if we're going to be doing more recent games for Total Recall, we'd better talk about Half-Life 2 sooner rather than later. As is true for so many people, HL2 is one of my favorite games of all time, an evergreen gem that I replay about once a year. (Half-Life 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Remember when Resistance 3 ripped off this moment almost exactly? Actually, that was most of the game, now that i think about it.

My favorite moment is when you are going through the courtyard near the end of the game and you have the blasts coming down from the sky and the big long-legged bastards are everywhere, and you have to climb the building looking for more rocket ammo. No game has ever captured that feeling that you are saving the day the way HL2 does.

so many great set pieces. and what's great about the set pieces in HL2, as opposed to a lot of really garbage games that get WAY WAY too much credit, you actually get to PLAY them and not just watch them in a cut scene or some BS scripted moment that always plays out exactly the same way.

Playing with dog, that was a magic moment, then the Combine had to come and ruin everything.

If I had to pick a top moment it would be something involving Alyx Vance, possibly the very beginning of episode one. I'm so creepily obsessed with Alyx it's really not okay. I can sort of fall back on the fact that it's probably because the first (and probably only) girl I ever really fell in love with was pretty much exactly a caucasian Alyx from the tomboy attitude down to the grown out short dyed hair, the ass hugging jeans and (weirdly) her exact skin tone. I can use the fact that my obsession with Ms. Vance is probably subconsciously based on this real girl I dated in the real world but I know it doesn't make it okay, I'm still pretty much head over heels for a completely fictional woman to the extent that I'm looking forward to Half life 3 mostly because I just want to see more of her.

Ps. As if I didn't already sound crazy enough, I should remind anyone from Valve who might be reading this that if Half life 3 rolls around and Alyx has been redesigned to look like some tacky supermodel (or redesigned at all in fact) I will personally murder you all to death until you die from it.

You sound like a reasonable guy.
