Being one of the few people that doesn't own a copy of Half-Life 2, I thought this contest might be worth entering as I have been told that Half-Life 2 is amazing.
Why I want it
I'm not a big fan of FPS games but I do have Halo 3, Resistance 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Fallout 3 and COD MW2. All of which I had a mediocre experience with. Except with Left 4 Dead and Fallout 3. The reason I didn't like the the others was because I didn't feel that they gave me an interesting experience. Left 4 Dead encouraged team work and Fallout 3 made you make lots of decisions that can affect you and the world around you. The other games were just shoot the bad guys and move on, maybe get a cut-scene then shoot some more bad guys.
From what I have heard Half-Life 2 makes the FPS experience more enjoyable by using puzzles and developing a great plot as well as shooting bad guys. If this is true then sign me up! Most of the plot I find in a FPS game is boring and simple but if the plot in Half-Life 2 is as good as everyone is saying then I'll be willing to play through it.
.....I don't know what else to say......
Oh yeah, GRAVITY GUN!!!!!!!!!! I WANT ONE!!!!
That is why I want Half-Life 2. But the decision is in Asdman's hands or I'll have to buy it and I am always broke. ALWAYS.
