Half-Life 2, PC

Half-Life 2 was first released by Valve Corporation in 2004. It was such a giant leap forward for games in general – not just first-person shooters – that its reverberations are still being felt today.

Half-Life (one) is a brilliant game, but Half-Life 2 completely blows it out of the water.

Half-Life 2 feels so incredibly well accomplished. The Source engine gives it an unprecedented level of detail in the environments and the controls. The story and pacing are top of the line. The variety in the gameplay astounding.

And Half-Life 2 is still going strong today. Some 14 years after release. So strong – in fact – that Half-Life 3 may never be released. Will Half-Life 2 just last forever?

I have to say that I still play Half-Life 2 today. Combined with Half-Life 2 Episodes 1 & 2, Half-Life 2 is still one of the greatest shooters around.

You can forget all your Call of Dutys and your Sniper Elites – Half-Life 2 is better than all of them. And will long be remembered after all the others have been forgotten.
