    I fired up Half-Life and am playing through the single-player on the hardest mode. God damn I forgot how amazing the original was. Bought it the day it came out, and have played through more times than I care to count. I'm sticking with the OG graphics and not the upgrade pack that came with Blue Shift.

    After I beat the SP I'll be replaying Opposing Force as well as Blue Shift. Looking for to OF as it's one of the best expansions ever released.

    Game brings back so much nostalgia. It made me think of all the mods released, Firearms, DOD, CS, Frontline Force...there were some great times. I remember going to a LAN cafe and playing the shit out of HLDM. I remember playing CS since it's very first incarnation, as well as DOD and more mods than I can even remember. CS with like 3 guns and two maps lol, DOD with dod_caen and all the crazy aiming systems it went through. Nothing beat those days...it was my best gaming years ever.

    What do you guys remember about Half-Life and it's mods? I wanna hear some stories.

    great game. My favorite series too

    It's crazy that CS has been out for 10 years now, I always go back to play at least once every couple weeks. I was in 6th grade when i bought HL, I had to beg my mom to buy me a M rated game :rofl::rofl:

    I also remember I had one of the first releases of DOD, you could strafe down the map while holding down the trigger for the BAR and get headshots all day long.

    It was a great, polished mod. But it wasn't my style. I loved Vampire Slayers, and want a Source remake bad.

    We played the heck out of the VIP escort mod at work. I forgot what it was called, one team were all snipers and the other team had heavy weapons and had to protect the VIP to the end. The VIP had nothing but a crowbar. If you got the "border escort" mod the "VIP" had an umbrella. Those were great times! That with Alien Vs. Predator there was a lot of yelling and laughing in the office when we played.

    I remember playng the demo that came with the PC gamer mag. I played the hell outta that demo, took me like a week just to beat it

    then the game came out I remember sitting there waiting and waiting for the uplink level. it never came.

    Also the Mods that PC gamer used to host, they They Hunger trilogy and that Darkstar mod. as well as Science and Indusry and the SvenCo-Op mod being able to play all the levels with more then 1 person as well as all of their levels like the RPG and the mario and the Cartoon levels.

    TFC was also an epic mod. and I remember when TF2 was supposed to come out like 8 years ago. god those were the days

    installed and still play it from time to time

    They Hunger! That shit was SO fun! I wish they'd do Source remakes on so many of the old mods. Sven Co-op was a lot of fun as well, better than Synergy, but similar on many levels.

    I am waiting for the eventual release of the black mesa mod to play HL again. Graphics look pretty sick for a free mod

    I did that like last month. Started with Blue Shift, then tried Opposing Force.

    Blue Shift is good but short.
    Opposing Force is noticeably longer but at the end, it turns into a game of save/load.

    I had OF for about 8 years but never beat due to my crappy computer.
