Half-Life: Blue Shift

Blue Shift is still good
In my opinion I think that even if it's shorter and has less weapons than opposing forces blue shift is still a good standalone half life spinoff, it brought back the survival horror side of hl while bringing an interesting story of how Barney got out of Black Mesa.

PS: the HD pack makes the game even graphically good for today

I might sound like a purist but I've always prefered HL1 to HL² (maybe because the story and ambience of the game is too different...).

I still like both game tho and Opposing Force is also great and expand well on the Black Mesa incident's story (kinda how Resident evil 2 & 3 are happening during more or less the same time in the same place (Racoon city).

HL fans shouldn't complain when there's a short but good story about a good and important character: Barney (without him, no HL² because Gordon would be gone to Nova Prospekt)

Also HD Pack = good improvement of the game

Yup, Half-Life 1, Opposing Forcem Blue Shift and Decay are good.

The only downside I can find for Opposing Force is that sometimes the difficulty is too unbalanced (because the game is harder overall) and Decay is kinda short and hard when playing in solo (but is nicely optimized for coop play)
I WANT TO PLAY DECAY OMG

Oh cool, thanks for the heads up. I knew about another PC port a while back but it was a little rough around the edges
