Only thing that could ever be disappointing about Half-Life is the seeming promise of a third that never came. I'm a "millenial", and this, and the Orange Box as a whole, is probably one of the greatest games I'll ever own

Using Ocarina of Time as an example, what if you heard everyone you've ever met say it was an amazing game.
You play it when youre 21 only to find its not fun
so you get disappointed
because you had higher expectations
thats how

I dont care what they say, I bought it much later on sale since it looked terrible. However I was surprised on just haw badly they fucked up the genre. I stopped watching gaming reviews all together back when Cod 5 came out. However I find it interesting to look at scores and reading comments on those scores. Same reason I like reading shit at 4chan

How old are you (underageb&)? HL2 was caused a fucking revolution in AAA gaming when it came out. Yes, compared to some modern games it's not /that/ special, but still bredy gud :DDD.

i never played that. i only knew about half life because my older brother read about it in a gaming magazine and bought it on release day

>>720008072
You should check it out for a bit of nostalgia.
>>
>>720008218
i loved opposing force, i thought that was almost as good as the original game

never played blue shift. not sure why, i guess the idea of playing as barney didnt appeal to me. i regret not playing it now though.
>>
>>720008532
Blue Shift wasn't particularly memorable. Opposing Force was good, I agree. Then there were all the mods which made things interesting.
>>
fallout 4. fuck that shit. nv is so much better. even 3 is.

>>720008218
If he never played it he would feel nostalgia from playing it now.. You only feel nostalgia for things you experienced when you were younger

>>720008763
Wouldnt*
>>
>>720008763
I meant because he had played Half Life, it would be a novelty and nostalgia.
>>
>>720008632
3 is obviously the best one but personally i was more disappointed by new vegas.. 4 wasnt too bad they just fucked up the story but the gameplay was on point
>>
>>720008923
I dont think you know what novelty is either but it would be closer to that then nostalgia for him
>>
If you don't pay for games do you have the right to be disappointed?
>>
>>720009091
Let me spell it out for you, condescending fuck:

He played the original Half Life but did not play the demo, which featured a level not in the final game. Therefore because it is essentially Half Life, just a standalone level, it feels much like the full game. So it would be both a new experience and nostalgic because it has most elements from the full game. Yes, it would be a novelty because it will complete a gap in his HL experience and be a diversion for an hour or two. Do you understand now, prick?

Half-life series is not dissapoinment rather quirky.
>>
>>720004102
It's basically a long tech demo, the only people who think differently are millenials who got told that it was objectively the best game ever when they started playing first person shooters and have believed it since.

Ask any of these >>720004270 >>720005023 >>720005282 fucks what actually makes it so great and they'll draw a blank, because they're just going on reccomendation, or they'll just meme shit like muh no health regen as if that alone makes it special.

yeah, even if you didn't buy it, you've still spent your time on it which is arguably more important than money.
>>
>>720007349
What exactly did Half Life 2 do to pale in comparison? It upgraded all technical aspects, expanded the universe in a perfectly paced manner, and put the source engine on the map.
>>
>>720005470
I agree, Antibirth on the other hand is amazing

name at least one decent well selling game not developed/published by valve that actually uses the source engine.

Only a millennial permavirgins are disappointed in games because they like to prove to everyone they're the authority on what makes a good game. It's a fucking game bro. You play it, and if you like it, you keep playing it. If not, it stays on the bottom of the disk pile. And only a chef and Wendy's no money earning poorfag gives the slightest fuck about the 60 bucks their out if the game is truly so bad they'll never play it again. Get a girlfriend, nerds.

Half-Life 2 was a big disappointment, but the real kicker is just how awesome this game clearly thought itself was.

The gravity gun is a stupid gimmick and they had to design pretty much all the levels around it.

Alyx is a cloyingly annoying programmer's sexual fantasy. Do you know a single real life woman is even remotely like this?

DOG is a classic untrained screenwriter's mistake. He is so ludicrously overpowered compared to the other characters that they keep having to write him out of events. Not only that, but if the resistance have access to this kind of sentient one-man army, and can in theory make more DOGs, why do they need Gordon?

The outdoor sections - and there are a lot of them - looked completely ridiculous. Fake polygony trees, fake polygony hills, fake polygony grass.

The AI for the human rebels is so terrible that it actually yanks you out the game.
>>
>>720010444
waste of good trips you cuck. I never said I pirated you retard. Pretty much everyone who works on a game is paid before it goes on sale, only the company goes out of pocket from poor sales.

If you can afford to buy a game then sure, you should buy it, piracy is still fair to try games. If you pirate a game and then are dissapointed buy it then you probably would've refunded it anyway so its not like a garunteed sale was lost.
>>
>>720010809
The AI for the human rebels was excellent, are you kidding? There certainly was no game in 2004 with better friendly AI, maybe some games had just as good AI.

And the outdoor sections were good. If you weren't playing it back then with graphics maxed out, that's your problem.

When I was a kid I got two games for my birthday, Zelda a Link to the past, and Zoop.

Not him, but I thought the whole game was the most lacking of the three.

Pros: Best combat of the three, skill branches.

Cons: Cheap looking, dumbed down UI, choices you make in the first two games are potentially all shit on in the first hour, cut scenes extended to the length of TV shows, carry weight.
>>
>>720006222
I quite liked skyward sword.
I wouldn't call it disappointing because I didn't really go into it with high expectations.
Besides the annoying as fuck shit like Fi and the description of materials popping up on screen every time I receive one, I thought it was pretty cool.
Sandship and ancient cistern were brilliant dungeons

Don't know why but it just didn't feel like the other games for some reason.
There were some cool bosses like pontiff sulyvahn and the princes but it just didn't give me the same feeling as dark souls 1 or 2 or demon's souls and bloodborne.
I was really hyped for it but the dlc has been out for months now and I haven't even bothered
>>
>>720016075
well yeah but like kid from my perspective am 19 year old babby :3

it was too similar to the others.

felt more like an expansion than a new game.
