For those who care, this is why I tend to dismiss mash up, mess up and retexture mods for Half-Life.

My primary argument is that it's not a mod, it's not even an expansion. It's Half-Life with coat of paint. In some cases I can hold up my hands on honestly say that it is a particularly well done coat of paint.

My issue is, as much as I love Half-Life, I've been playing it for over 15 years. I've seen it all. I won't enjoy it any more by running through the same game with new sounds or models. I definitely won't enjoy playing through something that you think is hilarious (speaking specifically about mess up mods now).

That said, I started editing Half-Life skins and sounds back in the day, it's how I got started with making changes to the base game. I'm not saying stop, by all means stick with it, but you don't have to put it online. If you do, don't be surprised if you get backlash from a few people.

I have made thousands of tweaks to Half-Life through the years and you won't find any of them online. They were purely for MY amusement. A lot of it would make me cringe if I look back at it today.

Hey do you think you'll do a Re-Review of the Cthulhu Mod?

Someone has made a Remastered Version which has alot of Map/Model Fixes and Improved Graphics.

What do you think of Overwatch aka Blizzards Team Fortress?

One of my favourite games of all time. If it is 'Blizzards Team Fortress' then it's a Team Fortress without the mountainous pile of hats / cosmetics.

I don't think the comparison is fair though. It's far more akin to a MOBA in that you NEED to coordinate with your team to make any kind of impact, which is why the six player teams work so much better IMO.

One of the best games of 2016, no question.

Yeah I Hate how People are saying Overwatch is a Copy of Team Fortress 2, it's like saying Killzone is a Copy of Halo, Command & Conquer is a Copy of Warcraft, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a Copy of Fallout, and so on.

Those Games may be in the same Genre respectively, but it doesn't mean they are Rip-Offs of one another, well Mostly.

You get the Point.
