Valve’s Half Life 2 has been impressing us for the past eight years. It is hard to believe that such a ground breaking, and arguably still impressive, game was released almost a decade ago. Well, Spike TV and Entertainment Weekly voted Valve’s Magnum Opus the best game of the decade.
Do you agree with their choice for game of the decade? I bought Half Life 2 on launch day and It’s amazing to think I am still using the same Steam account to this day. Gordon Freeman’s last non episodic adventure helped bring gravity based weaponry and rag doll physics to the genre. Even eight years on we are feeling its impact.
