Forum: Games

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!


i've recently been working on some maps in goldsrc / source which i hope to post here but nothing substantial yet

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

I like Surface Tension because the maps really make room for fun combat with the soldiers. Blast Pit has fun alien combat and the player being directed around to defeat the tentacle is simple but very fun.

Surface Tension is the best chapter, and I like using the tau
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.

Also what's wrong with Opposing Force?

Half-Life: Alyx was absolutely amazing! Other VR games just don't compare to it at all. It's been hard picking up another VR game since beating HL:A (except maybe Star Wars Squadrons).

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.

^ That Jeff chapter was genuinely terrifying, definitely one of my favorite chapters from that game.

I've been messing around with hl2 hammer and modding. I made a TF2 map
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.
HL2 is my favorite Half-Life, that game REALLY made me love games more. I really want Half-Life: Alyx but don't have a VR Ready Graphics card. I have a Quest 2 that I play VR games on tho.

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


I'd say that HL2 was a formative experience for me. I absolutely fell into deep love with the aesthetic and story, and I would say it was the first PC game that I've played from beginning to end with such insane amount of detail that I was taking my time and soaking up every section I could.

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).

Half life Alyx is probably the scariest game I've ever played, it's definitely in my top ten games ever.

Is Opposing Force really that bad? I’ve been thinking about replaying Half-Life and all the expansions after I finish replaying Half-Life 2 on the original Xbox.

I actually got really into the custom coop scene for Half Life 2 Deathmatch. So many hours and so many cool people. My favorite server is still going too! Its called "Bouncyball Coop."

They all blend so well that it's difficult to prefer one over the other. Though if I had to say:

Favorite: Blast Pit gives you a clear goal which motivates you to finish the chapter and has a very rewarding ending.

Least: Any of the Xen chapters. They're way too lengthy for me.

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.


HL2 aged so well. Huge leap as graphics and physics. We Don't Go To Ravenholm and HL2 Episode 1 had mild horror game taste. I also liked the journey feeling of the HL2 and the episodes.

With the ending of HL Alyx for me, it's cemented that G-Man carries the game. HL Alyx players wanted a good ending and G-Man delivered it. I still watch HL2 Episode 2 Heart-to-Heart cutscene from time to time, brings me chills.

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

as much as i love half life 2 and the half life beta community made mods, half life 1 ran on goldsrc, which had smell sensing AI.

unbelievably funny to me

I enjoy playing with the maps from HL1 in garrys mod. Endless fun.

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.

Personally, HL2 has a special place in my heart as my favorite game, but HL1 is just so classic, you can't really go wrong with it!
