I remember playing it on the Orange Box for PS3 in like... 2007 lol. I never beat it for some reason. It was somewhat entertaining though. Of course, in the upcoming years, I realised that Half Life 3 was like the most anticipated game ever. Today, I got intersted in trying it out again. Problem is.... I have no idea where my disk is lol. I looked up a walkthrough earlier and skimmed up to the part that I got to when I first played it. Thos is kind of unrelated, but i went to about the 1 hour 20 minute point and he was at the part with the motorbike thing riding on the water.... I remmeber it taking me like 10 hours to get to that point! I was thinking it was late in the game lol. I really sucked at videogames back then..... I still kind of do.
Anyway, it seems really interesting compared to games nowadays. Something about it just gives me this old school vibe. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the way the game is structured or the way the story is told? I dunno. I really want to play it again though and hopefully not suck this time.
So what exactly makes this game so praised by gamers?
