I first got Half-Life a couple of years ago, while I was still in college. However, I didn’t have much time to play it. I graduated about a year ago, and have given it a couple of tries since then.

I kept getting stuck and not knowing where to go next, which was very frustrating. I also have decided that survival horror games are just not my thing. I really wanted to like it, but I just haven’t been enjoying it at all.

I have been giving Half-Life another try this past week, because I know I have gotten a lot more confident in my playing ability and I don’t scare as easily as I used to. However, it still scares me too much and I just don’t have fun playing it. In addition, the old graphics didn’t used to bother me but I got spoiled by Mass Effect 2 and now I can tell how old it is. Maybe it makes me a wimp but I don’t want to punish myself and play all the way through so I am not going to keep playing it. I do know a lot of people who love the game though, so I’m planning to watch other people play through it on YouTube because I still want to know the story. For some reason, watching someone else play doesn’t scare me at all!

I also have Half-Life 2, but I will give that a try. At least it will have better graphics, and I’ll see if it seems any less frightening for me.

  1. Half Life is one of those great classic games, loved by many, including me. That’s a shame you can’t get into it, but that is apart of gaming. Half Life 2 is a lot better, and is my favorite, so hopefully you can get into that one.

  2. It’s too bad you didn’t get to the end of Half-Life. I played it for the first time about four years ago, and I was still very impressed with it and its level design. To me, it’s a game that actually lives up to the hype that surrounds it – the sequel even more so. I hope you do end up giving it another go because it’s a lot of fun. Though if you can’t, I’d say go for Half-Life 2; it still manages to be enjoyable on its own even if you haven’t finished the original.
