It doesnt have a dull moment. It goes like rocket on coffe from the first scene to the ending.

It still looks cool as hell.

And, mostly, it has the most simple yet inhumanly cool playable main charcter in the story of gaming. Valve makes you a silent unassuming being but makes you do incredibly intelligent yet uber-brutal stuff. You blow up stuff, but you always do it in a clever and hilarious way (my favourites are still freeing the road from obstacles with the gravity gun, or smashing people to a pulp with a working crane...)

Freeman has zero stuff yet is the ultimate badass with a simple croiwbar and a few crates.

Also, alyx has a nice ass.
damn you dude. i kept jumping in and out of the thought of playing this game for the same reason. i'd play the whole thing over again. favorite part is the spider walker in the tunnel and you're running away and kind of shooting and its like an action movie.

A sci-fi action movies but conceived by ironic sci-fi geeks.
Splatting zombies by dropping giant cars on them. Using the gravity gun to rearrange the roads and drive ultrafast. walking on an eiffel like tower, while branding a rocket launcher.

Per-fect

Half-Life 2 just got so much right. Even though the technology has been surpassed, I still think that HL2 + episodes are the definitive statement on the linear FPS.

Funny you should mention District 9, the first thing I thought when I saw both that and Children of Men was 'looks like Half Life 2', I wouldn't be surprised if they were influenced by it.

Am I the only person in the world that just couldn't get into Half-Life 2, even though I loved the first one?

What was it that you had a hard time getting into?

I think you might be the only one, dude.

I don't really know exactly. I started it ages ago and made it to Ravenholm, then stopped. Then I started it again and played a pretty significant chunk of it, I believe. (Right after I wrote that last sentence, I went and looked at the synopsis to see how close I was to finishing it. I was about a half-hour away. Huh.) I just kept playing it, trying to complete it, but feeling like I was just kind of floating through it and not feeling engaged somehow. I just remember being glued to my monitor when I played through the original Half-Life back in the day.

I wanted to play some Halo 3 online for the first time in a while, but when i tried it says i have to buy all of the new maps before i can! Does it bother anyone else that a game you spent almost $60 on won't let you play the best part unless you pay thirty or forty more dollars?
