Revisiting the First Half-Life; Why it is My Favorite PC Game of All Time

   0


All in all, Valve did something incredible with Half-Life. They changed a genre. They showed us that you could fully immerse a player in a character and still tell a story. Even if it was just that one man’s story, it was still incredible. The excellent pacing, wonderful designs, great controls and clever scripting created a shooter that is still being emulated today, 13 years later. As much as I loved Deus Ex, Far Cry, Riddick and others, they likely wouldn’t exist as we love them without Half-Life. The fact that Half-Life not only holds up, but holds up well is a testament to the 1998 games legacy, and for the reasons listed above, that is why Half-Life is my favorite PC game of all time.
