Which do you think is better? HL1 or HL2?
I personally think HL1 is better... while HL2 is decent I hate how the first half of the game (chapters 1-6) seem like a tech demo to me just showcasing the Source engine. I hope the first half of HL3 isn't just there to showcase the Source 2 engine... I also feel that HL1 is a lot more fluid and "real" in terms of progression.

um black mesa isn't that much better looking then half life 2 I've compared them side by side and yes there are differences but it isn't about the graphics. My opinion I love both games and like neither one more then the other. Both of them get 10/10 for me.

Definitely HL2. HL1 was nothing special. I could never understand the hype around 1st game. I finished it and that was it.
To me HL2 is better in every regard (not to mention I finished that game 4 times, compared to 1 [forced a bit because of boredom] with HL1).

I liked hl1 story more than hl2, hl2 had stacking which was fun, but the driving/boat segments were something that really put me off. Also Ravenholm reminded me a some sort of mod from hl1, can't remember the name.

Overall, hl1 had better pacing/more intresting environments, that's why I think it's better.

Half life 1 also has satchles :-) HL2 doesn't. :(

I personally love both games. While the weapons in the first game were better in my opinion, I enjoy the plot and general play style of Half Life 2. Personally, Half Life 2 episode 2 is my absolute favourite though.

The first Half-Life is my favorite, but I love both games.

Both.

I love both, but HL2 only has ONE Barney, whereas HL1 has about FIFTEEN THOUSAND

HL1 for multiplayer (crossfire omg) and HL2 for single player fun!

10 times the "HEY GORDON!"

Half-life 1 for its amazing story, frightening moments, amazing design and modeling, along with the variation

Half-life 2 was also pretty good, but not as amazing.

>And yes, I do mean half-life 1, not that (Imho) God awful black mesa mod

There are modders who are doing them, but they apparently work with Black-Mesa-speed. Mod for Blue Shift is called "Insecurity", and one for Opposing Force is confusingly named Operation:Black Mesa. Great difference between those guys and BM folks is the first seem to be actually working when we write, and they are doing it good IMO.

The AI in HL2 is much better
