I normally try to keep the games I review or talk about fairly new, or if they are not new at least not so well-known , so I can still give a somehow new opinion, but with games like half-life what can I say that hasn't been said already?
There is really no point on going through every detail of the game like thousand others already did over the years, but yesterday something different happened.
So with this red letter day I decided to talk a little about how I feel towards the series, but not so much a full review, since as I said, I can't really add much because almost everything has been said.
Personally my favorite game was the first one, the pacing, enemies and overall feel of the game was just perfect, and being one of the first games that tells you the story by actually playing through it and no cut scenes, was really something new back then, after that the HL2 series, which includes HL2, Ep. 1 and Ep. 2, supposedly there was supposed to be Ep. 3 next, but after so many years in development, people think it migh as well just be HL3, anyway the games fell revolutionizing again and I admuit there are about one or two sections that the game could be without, the game is still a perfect example of how shooters should be done, and of course with HL2 was introduced Source engine, which was and still is a milestone of gaming.
Basically, one of the few series I can pick up any day and start playing it all over again, a great addition to video-game history and hopefully HL3 won't be any less good.
With that I say good day, and enjoy the Super Bowl.
