My order of Half Life Game of the Year Edition came in the mail today!!! I'm currently dloading counterstrike, day of defeat, and some other stuff for it...hopefully i can get it working online as close as tomorrow morning...hopefully both mods work correctly, I wasn't able to get team fortress classic updated, says that the executables aren't upgraded and annoying **** like that.

anyways...I got the game. I can't wait to play online. =]

Half-Life was overrated....single player was fun but nothing special. Course I only played half cause of a dumb bug they never patched....

Shame you can't get TFC to work, that is easily my favourite mod out of the lot. I played it for about 2 years non stop and I still dabble now and then.

Half Life is easily the best PC shooter ever made even with it's archaic graphics, no game has ever come close for me. I guarantee you will absolutely love the single player.

I like playing that game
as the cave man with the bone in his head.
plus a favourite round is crowbars only.

Dude Half-Life is an amazing game. I played that for hours on end in college [which explains why I was there for so long. :D] I loved everything about it, the story of the sp and the mp was great! :D

You gurantee? Well leXX I didn't love the single player...do I get a compensation prize? Sure, it was fun(It was my second shooter) but it wasn't very special. Walk around, shoot things, no storyline, typical stuff. The online mods are great but I'm not including those since thats the modmakers, not the game.

Is it a pure shooter or is it like JO in the sense you have to do puzzles and all that? or just shoot things........

CS games are tons of fun. We play it everyday in my tech class at school. Gotta love teachers that like to use automatic weapons. :)

Ya, Half Life was worth it for the mods. Still, that was the mods, not the game- the engine is old and icky now, I wish they would transfer the mods to a newer engine. Dunno what they would use- they missed the boat for UT 2003(Which had a sucky server browser anyway) Doom 3 and Quake 4 are single player...Half Life 2, I guess.

As for mods, Firearms was by far the best, IMO. Counterstrike was overrated. Front Line Force was fun. Snark Wars was great. Note that I haven't played these in years so they may have changed. Firearms, I ruled at, I averaged like 15 kilsl per death. My loadout was always kevlar arms, kevlar legs, Kelvar Mark III, 5.56 AR GL, claymore mine.

I never got into the SP aspect of this game at all. I never even played HL ever for long either. I only got it for the mods that are good right now. :)

I thought CS was over-rated aswell, but not being able to play most of the new games didn't leave me with much of a choice either. So I kind of got hooked not to mention DOD which I like better anyway. ;) Say, I'll have to try Fire Arms now. I'm downloading that mod now. :lol:
