I don't know if you guys remember but I recently beat Half Life and I right now I think the first one was better. I'm not really sure what it is, the story in HL2 was a lot more in depth and I liked that about it. It could be that HL1 seemed like more of a mystery. I never knew what to expect next in the first game, but in the second game with all the people telling you what's happening and no trip to Xen or many aliens to kill I didn't enjoy it as much as the first. Also, I think it was easier. That could be because I had a better feel for the controls already, but the game does seem easier.
I'm not saying it's a bad game at all, though. One of the most fun games I've ever played, just not as fun as the first.
Oh, yeah, you guys were right. I want a Half Life 3. I'll have to settle for all the expansions (is that what they are?) like Episode 1 and 2 and Opposing Force and Blue Shift.
Anyway, thanks for reading and I'm prepared for the hate but I had more fun in HL1.
