and as far as FPSs go it's a lot more than most
i disagree... doom3, quake2, dark forces, jedi knight, jedi outcast, jedi academy, medal of honor, unreal2, tron2.0, etc... all these games (and many more) have as much of, if not more of, a plot than HL1 or HL2. what HL2 does better than these other games is: it presents that plot in a way that is extremely intruiging, and very cryptic.
and once again, by playing down to the over-hyped reviews this game gets i'm not saying it's a bad game... in fact it is one of the best and most fun games i have ever played. it simply does not deserve all the credit some people are giving it.
