Half-Life: Before

Half-Life: Before

I'm not going back to ancient half life 1.
Half Life 1 source is bad enough, compared to the excellent half life 2 'Black Mesa' mod which recreates HL1 with the decent graphics.

Now, if this was done with the HL2 graphics then it might be worth checking out, even paying money for.

You sir have no respect for the history of gaming, all because its "Ancient" doesnt mean its not a good game. You have the right to an opinion but dont go telling the creator of this mod about how bad it is because it doesn't meet your standards. The author released his work for free with is a very rare and good thing.


P.s Alot of people are pleased by this mod and dont go being cheeky and snivy on your discussion.

Hey, i respect HL1. I was there, playing it back in 1998 when it first came out. It's earned it's place in history and will be remembered appropriately. But this is 15 years on! After playing Black Mesa i expect no less than that standard :)

And whilst it's free which is awesome, i would have actually paid for Black Mesa. And probably would if this was made in similar fashion.

That is a silly standard to have

It's my standard for the half life games. Not necessarily other games. X-Com Enemy Unknown, Civ 2, even System Shock 2, can get by with their old graphics.

But after effectively re-playing through Half Life 1, with source and the graphics quality of Half Life 2, i cant really go back to that. (thanks Black Mesa team, and i'm not being ironic in that)

Whilst X-Com the 1997 original, and Colonization the 1996 original hold certain features that made them bettter in some ways, than their modern remakes. So they can be forgiven.

Commodus: AM I NOT MERCIFUL !!! :)

So you expect every person that want to mod hl2 got to be black mesa standard? yea because everyone got as much coding scripting modeling experience as the guys who made black mesa...
Leonem Dec 4, 2013 @ 4:34am 
HL1 is still as good today as it was in 98. Even with the older graphics. That's what is making it's charm. Both HL1 and 2 are great in their own ways.

Unfortunately that is the case SCP-049. But as Tasty Toasted Toad so eloquently put it,

'WHAT WE GONNA DO WITHOUT YOU' :)

Freaking graphics ♥♥♥♥♥s... I can't stand people like you. Whats wrong with playing a old looking game? I have just as much fun playing classics like Doom II, BG and XCOM than i do playing a 2013 game...

"OMG the graphics are dated, Run! Run! the pixels will eat us!!!"

*Facepalm*
