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.
