Half-Life: SpaceHey

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?

i've not made any content for it, but i'm glad to see a topic relating to half-life. the lore took over my aspie mind growing up and i will forever go on tangents about it if people ever ask.

Best game ever! There is the free mod on steam called sven coop that I enjoy playing. Talking to randos and just getting some custom maps done

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.

Getting into Half Life, I beat the original and Opposing Force. I can see why those games were basically the earliest to have a large fandom on the internet.

Fuck headcrabs though

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.
