So recently I just finished Half Life 2 and Half Life 2: Episode 1 (thanks dognose!) and shit I've been missing out. The games are just mind blowingly fucking awesome. Never have I played through a game that seems less repetitive, interesting, and fun to play! The only bad thing I have to say about the HL series is Half Life, the first one. For some reason, I could only play a hour of it before becoming really nauseated and felt like I was going to throw up. But besides that, Half Life was awesome as well!
tl;dr: thanks dognose for gifting me these awesome games!
