Originally posted by Reign Tsumaraki:What disappointed me, is that Valve has released next to nothing about HL3. I mean, they have not said a single thing about it for the past, what, 7 years?
Originally posted by Lord Affe:Either they want it to be mindblowingly awesome, so they wait until they can introduce the next milestone of videogames with the next part. Or they lost interest because the story seems to be a dead end. They might focus on Portal and maybe other games that also take place in the HL-Universe, until HL is forgotten forever :/ Maybe they realised that HL 2 was too linear for today's gamingexperience and they haven't found the right way to change that without losing the uniquness of playing Gordon Freeman like it used to be.Maybe you can compare it to Stephen King's Dark Tower Series, he startet writing as a young man and came to an end after two decades and is still adding something after three. Besides he has established many ties between the Series and his other books. I guess the idea of HL needs to change and grow until the guy at Valve are satisfied with the outcome. It may be difficult to follow up on the last cliffhanger with a new concept, though.And I also don't like the idea of that ship they were talking about and snowy terrain is also not my favourit. I want to go to Xen once more, with other Humans that were drawn there too (in a human body, not in an altered hostbody...) but that's just me.
