Top 5 Half Life 2 modifications
By John Spaztic
Ok, so if you, like me, are interested in modifications for Half Life 2, you're in luck. Today I will compile the top 5 best Half Life 2 modifications out there. *NOTE* I have NOT made these mods, I am just writing about them, so I take no credit for the mods. Without further ado, let's get started.
This is the not so fun part 1. I have to have played this mod to recommend it to you 2. Some of these mods are now games, and you may have a hard time getting the original mod to work 3. No Source mods such as Insurgency, Obsidian Conflict or Black Mesa 4. This list is for Half Life 2, and both it's episodes, not just Half Life 2. You may need the complete pack for all of them 5. However, if you wish to not get the Half Life 2 pack, you may be able to use both Source SDK 2006 and 2007 to get these mods to work
The Hidden: Source This mod puts you into the shoes of either Subject 617, who is a scientific experiment gone wrong, or the IRIS, who are given orders to catch and kill 617. As the IRIS you are given pistols, shotguns, assualt rifles and such, whereas 617 is just invisible with a knife and three pipebombs. This multiplayer mod makes for fast paced action in scenarios that you may not be familiar with. As you may be playing with people you don't know, and 617 can jump out of anywhere, I think it's suffice to say, watch your back. This is the official website for the mod : http://www.hidden-source.com/
Korsakovia This horror mod places you in the role of Christopher, who suffers from Korsakoffs. You wake up in a seemingly abandonded hospital, while the voice of a mysterious Dr Grayson has conversations with you. As you explore the hospital more, the truth begins to become more distorted, and more horrifying. In the end, you decide what is real, and what is not. Sporting horrifying visuals, a disturbing storyline, and one of the most surreal situations ever seen in a Half Life mod, this is worthy of your attention. Be advised, this mod is not for everyone, and some scenes may disturb some people, so be prepared for it. The mod on ModDB : http://www.moddb.com/mods/korsakovia
Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat Another multiplayer experience, Insurgency is a mod where you and your team are fighting in a war ravaged city. The Americans against the Insurgents, this mod gives you the feeling of dread when you're either going into unknown territory, or when there is an impending attack on you. This mod rewards teamplay, and if you try to fight by yourself, you may not survive as long. The ModDB page : www.moddb.com/mods/insurgency
Dear Esther If there was any doubt about this being on here, I don't see why. This beautiful piece of interactive storytelling pulls you into the world of a dying wonderer, who has crashed on this unknown island, and is slowly dying. While not a mod for those who prefer gameplay over story, it's voice acting, script, surroundings and how it all flow together makes this mod a masterpiece and a benchmark for later story based mods to come. The olny problem here, is that unlike all of the other mods on this list, there is not much in the gameplay aspect of things. It is emersive, but all you do is walk around. If there were an update that let you read the books, and closer inspect the mysterious drawings on the wall, then maybe this mod would top the list. The official website : http://dear-esther.com/
Garry's Mod Even though it's not my personal favourite mod, it is the best. A sandbox game that has no goals, you can do almost anything. If you wish to play a detective and solve some crimes, you are free to do so. If you wish to build a spaceship, there is nothing stopping you. If you wish to reinact the Ohama Beach scene from Saving Private Ryan, go ahead. There are no limits to this mod, and the community surrounding this mod keeps getting bigger. Apart from Team Fortress Two, there is not a more famous Source game out there. So what are you waiting for? Go and get this mod now! The official website : http://www.garrysmod.com/
