Yeah,I totally forgot.
Good old days who never come come back.Half-Life & Riva TNT or GeForce 2.
Didn't like it. Better than hl2 but still meh in my book.
At the time (of playing both games), I enjoyed HL better than HL2, even though I recognize that HL2 was more technically impressive, and had a fuller narrative.
There's just something... addictive about HL.
Loved it. It's unfortunate that even Black Mesa can't replicate the fun of HL DM and kinda went HL2 DM style instead.
Personally, I find Half-Life has a better narrative then HL2.
To me, HL2 just felt like it was trying way too hard to be better then HL, and instead came off a bit lackluster.
Still a good game, but to busy trying to outdo the previous title instead of being it's own thing.
But, Half-Life is fantastic (until Xen).
But, November of 1998... I was a Junior in High School.
Old games were more about the gameplay itself. Newer games are about graphics. and the newest are about marketing and cinematics.. :| Gameplay is at the bottom.
Lol, what nonsense.
I'm still waiting for Xen levels to be completed to continue playing Black Mesa.
Its not nonsense. Its absolutely true. Big business ruined creativity!
It is nonsense. But feel free to explain to me how the original Wolf3D shareware had better anything than the latest Doom. Go ahead.
Or how Sensible Soccer did anything better than the latest FIFA.
Games back in the day were primitive. We love them because that's all we knew when we were young. No way in hell would games from back in the day succeed nowadays. Nope.
Btw, we all drooled at shallow games with amazing graphics even back 30 years ago. And most people were making games to make money. If you think otherwise, you need to think again.
Nowadays there are a few exceptions to this "rule" like Stardew Valley and Undertale that have sublimated the GAMEPLAY over graphics, no UBER graphics or graphics at all in today standards but they are a big success.
I loved HL2 , completed it over 15 times. totally love the story
