Whats the big deal?
People are so pumped for HL3, but I can't even see the fun in playing 2...

well thats your opinon if you like modern day shooters you might not like half-life. i love the series and thats all i ever want to play is half-life. you just must have a different taste and thats ok, just don't be one of those people who go around and hate on it. just because you don't like it doesn't mean its not a good game.
but to actually anwser your question is that when half-life 2 came out it blew every thing esle out of the water. in graphics wise, in gameplay wise, in pretty much every thing that came out before it, and half-life 1 had an even bigger impact, it redefined all of gaming and revolutionized every thing. back then it wasn't call of duty vs battlefield it was half-life vs halo. we are hoping half-life 3 will do the same thing as its precedors. plus half-life 2: episode 2 ( the final installment of half-life 2 ) left on a huge cliff hanger and it came out almost seven years ago, so you cant really blame the people who love it for getting impatient. ( sorry for all of the bad grammar )

Wow. That's a much better answer than I expected! Frankly, I just thought it would be funny to start ♥♥♥♥ since people get so easily worked up all the time, but I like this better.

I can see where the gameplay is kind of bad.
It's mainly the story as it's a pretty deep one.
Even beyond what is told to you through dialogue.

And the fact Episode 2 was a cliffhanger.
It's just natural that people want to know what happens.
