I recently wanted to play a first-person-shooter, but of course I didn’t have the money to go out and buy anything. I do, though, have a CD of the original half-life, so I installed it, realized it didn’t work on XPSP2, and then hunted around on the net until I found the latest patch. It still has a couple of glitches, but it worked great. And the concensus? Even though it was released exactly 7 years ago, it is still an excellent game. No boring cut-scenes to skip through, the entire story is given bit-by-bit as you go through the game.

What I find amazing is that this game still sells well, mostly due to the continuing popularity of Counter-Strike, which is still one of the most popular online games.

If anyone reads this, which I highly doubt, do you reccomend any other older games that I might enjoy?
