    hmm moden games try to be too much like films but it dosen't work if the game lasts 20hrs odd. Freespace 2 had one of the most amazing moments in gaming where you come through the clouds and find a VAST fleet of the ships that you thought there was only one of. The one you destoroyed took several missions and sevearly depleted humanities forces so the moment you see them you kinda know its the end for humanity
    its not

    Have you heard about HL: Source? It is the original HL rebuild with Source... Only this one has been made by Valve

    It was a bit of a waste I've been told ... just rehashed textures not a proper source jobbie

    Pretty much. Nice if you have it, and a great excuse to replay, but nothing beyond the original.

    QFT. It looked essentially identical to the original and had a bug where it didn't auto-save, so when you die, you go all the way back to the beginning.

    What really set HL2 apart from, well, pretty much everything that had come before was not the graphics (which were incrediable), but the characters and the story. HL:S made some minor improvements to the graphics, but didn't do anything about adding the essential elements of HL2, and so it was really a sort of a fail.

    Is there any way to skip the train introduction sequence on the original half life? It takes ages, and all I want to do is play :(

    'fraid not. Just do what I do and start the game and then leave it playing while you go make a cup of irish tea.

    How frustrating. I just wanted to drop in and play in between my revision sessions, but by the time it finished I barely got any playing time.
    Ah well, will just leave it running.

    Having played a decent chunk of it now, I can't actually remember the majority of it. I don't think I ever actually completed it :/
    I've just got to the surface, there's another of those monsters like there was in the blast pit, and there's also a minefield. How far through am I?

    Op:For has one of my all time fave game moments, ever. Its during the training session at the start and you get to test your armoured vest - I absolutely love that little scene, I think its a moment of true genius.

    Oh the years I spent with HL1, those were good times. I remember having LAN's back in High School in my networking class and I got into mapping for a couple of years as well. :) I might have to replay this again after I finish Half-Life 2.
