I,m truely blown away at how many idiots actually spent time to shit on Valve.Half Life is one of the few games I felt compelled to finish completely.For what ever reason I play multi continuously everyday now for over 2 years and Quake 3 and Unreal sit idle.why, I can't put a finger on it but those other titles dont have what HL does. I've bout every add on and theroughly enjoyed them,and yes I though Dues Ex sucked in comparison along with System Shock 2 ( come on the enemies are monkeys, and midwives for christ sake). I'm sure Valve employee's must sit back and laugh at all you sinical assholes while they create another masterpiece. How much do they seel HL for today? still 40 bucks and System Shock 2 sit in bargain bins for 9.95. I believe the people have spoken.
