Hell yes, Half Life 2 is the best FPS of all time.

I'm a huge fan of Valve games, especially the Half-Life series.

I can't wait to hear what the other two announcements are going to be!

Episode 3 is way past due and needs to come out now!!

If they announce HL 3 with a new engine I'll go nuts!

I agree with everything you say

But I'm affraid HL2 will forever just end with Gordon chilling by that chopper with Dog, Alex and her now impaled deceased father

seriously? best first-person game of all time? lets get real here for a minute. HL2's story was more intelligent than other games, true, but it still had plot holes and repetitive levels and enemies. id rank half life a step above the halo series, but nothing too far beyond that. just cause they use scientific words most 12 year olds and frat boys wont understand doesnt mean the game is better, its just Valve using marketing strategy to create a niche group of loyal fans.

if you ask me the first half life was the best. the HL2 games took it way overboard to the point where the story is just a confusing mess that seems like theyre just making up as they go. id much rather have this released than episode 3, http://www.blackmesasource.com/

I disagree! I really do think Half-Life 2 is one of the best First-Person Shooters of all times. Plot holes? Repetitive levels? Were we playing the same game?

I dunno, are you playing the "sequal" that had nothing to do with the first game, aside from a few cameo's from old characters, in order to just show off Valve's cool physics effects? Or how about the game where you just drive a shitty car for 100 levels while fighting either giant crickets or SWAT guys in a city ripped right from Orwell's story. They didn't even bother to make the driving part work smoothly, it was all choppy and hard to steer, I'm pretty sure the last level of episode 2 was just the developers trolling the fuck out of their fanboys.

I liked the game, it was a lot of fun, but I didn't jizz my pants over it. And despite whether it was even a good game or not, theres absolutely no good reason why episode 3 wasn't released 2 years ago.

I jizzed my pants over it! I still do! The driving sequences aren't that long, and there's a lot of different types of levels, especially if you include the two episodes.

Div quit hatin! You hater!

edit: also yes, Episode 3 should have been out a long time ago

That's probably because you sucked at driving. I had no problem with the driving mechanics. It was abit choppy but it was smooth sailing other then that

Also, I will admit....just like Mankvill...I also Jizzed in my pants over this game......many...many times

I remember when I first played HL2 it seemed to me that the driving portions of the game went on forever, but when I replayed it recently, it seemed fine to me.
