If you're just looking for an opinion then I have to say that Half-life 2 is easily one of my favorite games of all time. It may be hard to notice if you hadn't played it around the time of its original release but it has been highly influencial on the genre. Anyway, I think it's worth far more than its price and highly recommend it to anyone who likes immersive action/fps games.

Half Life 2 is easily one of the best games ever made and definately worth it. It's not even 5 bucks during the sale as well

HL2 is the greatest SP FPS experience ever. Seriously. I got it for 3.49, but even now at $5 it's a steal. I would buy it for >$10 if that were the price. I also recommend downloading and playing the mod Black Mesa: Source for free or buying HL1 as that game is great as well.

lol You shouldn't even have to ask half life 2 is one of the best games of all time. hl1 is very awesome too just lower graphics, but still awesome.

YES! Half life 2 is the best game made

HL2, HL2:Episode 1 and HL2:Episode 2 are all worth the money. There are no other games that compare to the series. You should buy all three IMO.

The question you need to be asking is "why haven't I bought Half Life 2 yet guys?"

I really dont know why everybody loves half life 2
the game is crap I think and I have a reason
the game has bad shooting cheap deaths and your character gordon freeman feels floaty and the story makes no sence

@Cole
Your opinion is theoretically valid but calling the game "crap" is an absurd statement. There is nothing broken in the game, it has incredible pacing, smooth action sequences, one of the best npc sidekicks of any video game, and its cutscene-less storytelling (originally started in HL1) has inspired a number of acclaimed series (ex: Bioshock, Batman Arkham series). Since I mentioned the story, I find it perfectly sensible, each game has had a particular arc (which I could discuss in further detail if you have the interest) while leaving some lingering questions to be followed up in subsequent releases. Anyhow, Half-life 2 is universally considered one of the greatest video games ever made, to so easily call it crap seems unnecessarily hyperbolic. You have every right to dislike the game, however I don't think most people would be as kind about your opinion.
