post #21 of 42
Wow, can I get in on this Half Life giveaway? I've actually never played them either...

the way half-life 2 was developed you really dont need to play half-life 1 to play but it sure does help a lot with understanding the story if you play through

The original half-life is ultra classic, and the first 2/3's of the game are really awesome. The last 1/3 of the game is some what terrible though, but I still recommend playing thru the original first. It's mandatory for any one is a PC gamer.

Wow, a lot of generous people on here! Way to go. You'll like Half Life 2, it's considered a classic for a reason.


Oh, and I still like Half Life 1... I get over 9000fps in it.

Thread Starter 
Just an update to say I have finally finished all 3. Got to the last level of Half Life 2 but had to take a break over Christmas, fired it up and finished it this morning.

Thought I might as well do a bit of ep1 and 3 hours later the credits are rolling so I figure I could get a few levels of ep2 done before I head to bed. Well now its almost 4am and the credits are rolling again.

Really am glad I got round to playing them, amazing games and a huge thank you again to TheCanadian and Pez.
For anyone who like me hadn't got round to it, go and play them now .

Anyways im heading to bed but I shall have to get the original Half Life tomorrow .

Or do they just use the same world with completely different storylines?
I played Half life 2 and the episodes first. I only just finished Half 1. I enjoyed it but if I hadn't completed the rest I dont think I would have finished them. Now I am waiting to play the second series for the 4th time but this time once my Novint Falcon arrives from US. Cant wait. They are fantastic games and Ii considered myself a gamer b4 I played them but looking back I dont know how. Its amazing shooting head crabs and looking up to see a stream on big 3 legged walkers andn combines crossing a bridge in epic proportion. Fantastic games. If you are going to purchase them get the orange boxset. Its like the bible of vale. Fantastic. Just remember the cake is a lie and free the freeman!!!!!! love it

U don't need to play Half Life 1. Cos it was in Black Mesa,
and in Half Life 2, it's like "O.K., now forget about Black Mesa, all of a sudden,
your in some random pseudo - european city and soldiers in gasmasks took over the place."
