Game Debate to the Death! Favorite Half-Life game?

My vote is for the game that came out on time.

In the previous debate we welcomed the community to vent their frustrations over all the series they wished would just die, and this week we discuss a game that has yet to even be born. As for the winner of the most hated game series of the last debate:

  • Call of Duty! Or Assassin’s Creed! I don’t know!

These debates have grown incredibly large, and when I first started them back in 2006 I hadn’t anticipated the advent of Disqus crowd voting. A vote for Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed rose to the top, but both of them netted a large amount of separate upvote and downvote comments, which really blurred which metric I should be using to pick a winner. Because of this clusterfun of a comments issue, moving forward I’ve decided to experiment with using PollDaddy. Head to the next page to cast your vote and view the poll results!

Before we force Gabe Newell to have a Caesarean birth to Half-Life 3, let’s first cover which of the previous Half-Life games has been the most enjoyed. Yes, I’m counting Episode One and Episode Two as eligible voting candidates, along with Opposing Force and Blue Shift.

Cast your vote, share the reason(s) for your choice in the comments below, and check back next week for a brand new debate! If you liked the header image (wallpaper size here) I chose for this debate, be sure to look through the online portfolio of Darren Geers to see his other art.

Also, from here onwards, I openly encourage you to share these debates online with your friends on Facebook and Twitter!
