Half Life

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?

    I think Porter meant to write his comment here as opposed to the last post. It was:

    Unreal Tournament is a multiplayer FPS that has held up very well.

    It’s not as old as HL, though — it’s only about 5 years old.

    Unreal Tournament is a good game, but multiplayer games aren’t really an option for me, since I have no one to play with.

    It’s still pretty easy to find internet servers for Unreal Tournament.

    UT was the first FPS with decent bot support, making it pretty fun to play by yourself.
