Valve Software forever changed the face of the first-person shooter with its revolutionary shooter Half-Life. Exhibition, interaction, and realism would all become the standards by which future titles in the genre would be compared, and this is thanks to Valve's ingenious delivery of, by many opinions, the most engrossing and exciting shooter ever. Never before had levels seamlessly moved from one to the next, with the ability to backtrack. Never before had a story been told through in-game interaction and scripted sequences. Never before had human enemy AI been so close to lifelike. The truly amazing part, however, is that the game is nearly three years old! If you've had a PC this long (remember, it doesn't even have to be upgraded) and have never played Half-Life, the time is nowDe mensen met een minder krachtig systeem zouden eens naar het Budget pack: Lock 'n Load moeten kijken waar SiN, KingPin, Soldier of Fortune Platinum en Spec Ops 2: Rangers Lead the Way + uitbreiding in zitten. En natuurlijk de betere budgetbak is voor dit soort gamers een uitkomst.
