Half-Life 2 Hits the Newsstands

Well it seems that magazines with Half-Life 2 cover stories have started showing up all around the globe. It should be obvious that as a matter of respecting copyrights, not to mention plain good manners, we won't post any links to unauthorized scans of content, but CGW and PC Gamer were canny enough to send along images of their covers to whet our appetites, or possibly to serve as visual aids if your local shopkeeper doesn't know what magazine you are asking about. If the covers seem familiar, it may be because they use the same pieces of art as the two European magazine covers revealed yesterday.

But gaming magazines put Half Life on the number one spot, yapping about amazing single player and fantastic multiplayer MODS...

Gaming magazines simply cannot get over the fact that there ARE games out there MUCH better than Half Life

For the record, PCGAMER gave it's "Best Game of All Time" award to Half-life in 1999.

I don't remember counterstrike getting #3 but if it did it just goes to show they rated them as seperate games.

We don't know if they have changed their views since then because they haven't released another Top 100 list. I know they've rated other games higher than half-life since (Alpha Centauri comes to mind.)

Half-life was used as a benchmark to rate all other FPS to after it was released. I don't see anyone using Jedi Knight 2 as one.

So, like I said, they better come up with some mindnumbingly fantastic gameplay, or they are going to go down mediocre lane.

This is exactly the reason to be excited about this game. Valve did it before, I don't find it hard to believe they can do it again.
