thought i'd make a place to discuss probably my favourite game franchise: Half-Life! post your game tier list, post your own Original Creations related to Half-Life, or talk about why you think Opposing Force is the worst Half-Life game, among other things!

What are your favourite chapters in the series? Mine are Blast Pit and Surface Tension.

cannon to propel myself into a wedge below the dam to skip the
helicopter part. I used the speedrun the game for fun, and I would
finish sometime around an hour.

I personally miss Half-Life! I actually got it for my PS2, and because of that I also had the lovely chance to play Half-Life: Decay with my lovely sister.
Funnily enough when my sister and I were trying to buy it for the PS2 the first time we got ID'd for it even though we were both 15 or over lol, we kept going at each other at why we possibly got ID'd for it xD
I don't think I am going to lose that memory, it's a good one!

Half Life Alyx is honestly a gaming revolution, anyone who bitched and moaned that it was VR only is just a nerd and is sad that can't play. The Jeff chapter would not have the same feeling at all on desktop and has to be played to be in the know. If you havent played it, go buy an index right now and get playing!!!! Its life changing.

called Team Fortress: Wasteland (just a map im messing around with
working on) and yeah. I really want Source 2 but dont have alyx yet lol.
ive started following this hl mod with a modified HLA SDK that isn't
VR. the mod is called Half-Life: Quarantine and looks fun. I'm really
excited about s&box too! off-topic but yeah.

I certainly hope the Half Life community on here is a lot nicer than the one on Garry's Mod.

HALF LIFE FOR LIFE. PLAYED EVERY SINGLE TITLE. VALVE ARE GENIUS, starting from HL1 to Half Life Alyx. Every single HL title is genius and perfect and every title is polished AF, especially when it comes to the soundtrack. I love Half Life. I love the gates it has opened for other videogames, such as Counter Strike and Team Fortress. I am not a big fan in Garry's Mod though, might be a bit old for that (late Millenial).

I have one controversial idea that HL1 haven't aged well graphically. That's why Black Mesa remake maskes sense. I get so much backlash for saying it but if gotta be honest HL1 always looked ugly. It looked impressive back in the day but still looked ugly. Since it's an ambitiously realistic game, due to it's limitations at the time game can not provide enough photorealism. Xen levels looks hideous.

honestly, i dont think there is a worst half life game (they all have their own unique strengths), but if there was i'd definitely say half life for the ps2. it is quite literally unplayable and i dont think theres a single person whos a legit fan of the game LMAO
but i do agree that op4 is pretty weak, and relatively overrated, but its still fun to play every once in a while whilst on the annual half life craze phase

The AI didn't actually smell, they heard sound queues for things that would smell bad in real life and would react saying that the smell was bad/asking what the smell was when it happened. Like gibs hitting the floor near them and they'd comment on the smell. So it was sound based not smell.
