The graphics were shit at the time... if you looked in any arcade, arcade graphics were ahead of half life by a long shot. Half life was totally fun, but I disagree it showed us for the first time what immersion scripted story events can create, RPGs have been doing that since their inception. Half life basically took the story telling model from RPGs and put it into a FPS, and with great effect in my opinion. Max payne did the same thing, but used, in my opinion, gameplay to keep you attached for long enough for the story to get interesting. Though it was a pretty lame story, and good but not over the top graphics, the revenge you wish to exact is compelling enough that most people even hashed their way through those god awful maze levels just to fuck up that bitch who made all that valkyr in the first place.This comment was edited on Aug 14, 16:14.
