Of all the games out there, the original Half-Life remains one of my all-time favorites. Iconic. A landmark in video gaming. Seminal. Just this last week, the fan-made complete 100% remake called “Black Mesa Source” was released, for free. If you have a PC and you’re not playing this, I honestly don’t know what you’re doing with your life. I really don’t.
I’ve been waiting for this thing for years on end and it has been delightful, nostalgic, thrilling, and a pitch-perfect re-imagining of the world of Black Mesa. Playing the intro-sequence was so sweet. These guys have hit it out of the park. Absolute must-play.
