Alright /v/, I'm going to take the plunge and play Half Life 2.
The vanilla game looks like shit though, are there any mods to make it look modern?
I think you should just accept that you've missed out on HL2. The graphics aren't the only aspect of the game which is dated, the gameplay suffers too. I loved HL2, still do, but that's because I played it when it was still relevant and somewhat impressive. Going into it now, when it has nothing new to offer, is just silly. It's like how teenagers today try playing Morrowind because they enjoyed Skyrim so much. They just can't enjoy it because it all feels so clunky and unintuitive to them. Then the people who did play the game when it was relevant have to put up with all the shitposting from those teens.
Do yourself and HL2 fans a favour and just skip this game.
it literally ruins the game
cinametic mod is waaaaay overdone and it looks fucking ugly as fuck, also the characters dont make any sense
also hl2 doesnt look like shit, OP is a troll
Last I checked there really weren't any worthwhile mods for HL2. Vanilla isn't bad in my opinion, I think it still looks pretty good. The faces are still better than some modern games.
I'm pretty sure all you have to do is type
"exec xbox" something something, it should autofill and it'll change to xbox controls and prompts, even works with tf2 if you wanna get rekt by every gibus wearer ever.
There probably are some mods that update the visuals and that don't break the game completely like that shit cinematic mod, but it's not really necessary imo senpai. The outdoors sections still look nice.
You can try Black Mesa for a remake experience of the original.
>No, stop playing this shitty meme game.
Little boy you shouldn't use words and terms you do not understand. I know you are trying t fit in, but you'll just end up drawing negative attention to yourself.
You could at least put some effort into your trolling.
