Named Game of the Year by over 50 publications, Valve's début title blends action and adventure with award-winning technology to create a frighteningly realistic world where players must think to survive. Also includes an exciting multiplayer mode that allows you to play against friends and enemies around the world.
Ah yes, the big one. The beginning of Valve, the rise of new mod creators. The birth of Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, Cry of Fear, Paranoia, Afraid of Monsters, and so many other games.
A game so good, that I would rather play this over Black Mesa, simply because while Black Mesa is an amazing mod with amazing production values and attention to detail, Half-Life is just so iconic and wonderful to play even now.
The audio is fantastic too, every single sound you hear in this game is iconic, the sounds instantly make you think of Half-Life.
A truely fantastic game.
