For what feels like the umpteenth time, rumors have begun to fly
about the possibility of a Half-Life 3 announcement at this year’s E3. While I’ve prepared myself for these rumors to be completely false (Valve seems to think they are), I can’t help but feel as if Valve has been mum for far too long regarding the Half-Life franchise’s future, and that this really could be the year that we see Gordon Freeman and Co.’s next big step. Expectations are high in general, but given just how insanely influential Half-Life 2 was on the shooter genre when it released, mine could be considered astronomical, unrealistic even. I expect nothing but near perfection after almost 8 years of waiting, but I believe Valve is up to the challenge. Here’s what I want to see.
