Half-Life 2

Okay, for the people who have played this game, how many of you loved it when you first booted it up?

I like Half-Life 2 so much because other FPS go for a more cinematic approach or to try and do these cutscenes that make the character look all badass. And truthfully, it just makes them seem too fantastical, and less believable.

Half-Life 2, the characters, enemies, and environments all seem believable and real, you can choose to mess around during the story sequences, and all the cool badass moments, it's not just some scripted cutscene where you can't do anything, YOU actually do it, and it makes it feel more real.


What are all your thoughts?

You know you have a point, not all games allow you to interact with cutscenes. Though I didn't have a good impression of it when I first got the orange box (the motion blur actually got me sick lol) But when My power went And All I had to do was Single player I really was impressed by the Combine's AI and the uniqe plot the game had to it.


Also, I know you have photoshop, So go nuts... :P

Dang, Well... I guess We'll just have to wait for Mac version or something... Either that or I could convert a .vtf into a .tga if you'd still want to make something on you own.

Assassin's Creed let you interact with the cut scenes. You can walk around in them.

Got all the Half Life games now, I love them to death, I don't know what it is about the game that makes it so damn fun to play, I'm going to try play through the games using only the crowbar/grav' gun (unless I have no other choices (gunships/snipers, etc)). I want ep3 or HL3 already : < I can wait though, seeing how I waited for SC2 for aroud 14 years and am still waiting on a console Starfox.

So far, the Freeman and Breen are my favourite characters out of that game, speaking of Breen, dead/alive or other?

Well sh!t... his voice was the best thing about him. *sigh* May he RIP. Breen did mention something about a host body, maybe he has moved to someone else?

There is actually an achievement in Episode One for that, you can only fire one bullet for the entire game so you can open a gate. Otherwise you can only use the Gravity Gun, the crowbar, Rocket Launcher, or Grenades.

It's difficult, but I managed to pull it off.

Nice. I might have to check that one out as well.
