Half-Life: Alyx is coming in March, and Valve are celebrating early by making all games in the Half-Life Series FREE to play for Steam users, from now until the day it launches.
Even thought the games are dated, HL has some great set pieces, HL spin-offs are enjoyable, and HL2 has the best damn physics.
Games are boring now to be honest. Even back in the days, it wasn't really that great.
I can name many a game today counted among the current gens opinions as masterpieces that wouldn't have been a thing had it not been for half life.
Half-Life wouldn't have been Half-Life without GoldenEye. Cool tidbit.
And goldeneye wouldn't have been goldeneye without Doom or even wolfenstein. Almost everything draws influence from something else.
Or maybe its just your taste
I don't care if that is only your opinion, your wrong!!
Yeah I must of beat it decades ago and thought the same thing. I figured I was just too late and it didn’t hold up for me. I went on to make myself beat hl2 and by the 3rd episode I just gave up as I couldn’t make myself like it or understand what the fuss was about. I just wish I could remember when I beat them, has to be at least 15 years ago. Anyway just got a quest so I’m gonna try it in vr.
Almost bought hl1 bundle at full price for oculus quest but didn’t since I have hl2 already and was waiting for a sale. There is a side loaded vr version I want to try tonight.
Played Black Mesa through and am now on HL2. Great games.
