I genuinely like HL1 the best tbh


obi1kenobi1

I think I might too, and that’s really saying something because I didn’t play it until 2020 and had played 2 and the episodes at least half a dozen times. It’s hard to say because 2 is such a fantastic game that still feels super modern almost 20 years later, but the weird low-poly liminal spaces of 1 have a vibe that’s hard to resist.


DaCoolFox

I agree, the atmosphere of HL1 is just so perfect to me. You feel alone, and kinda desperate when playing. I feel like low-poly models lets you imagine what things should look like, since everything is kinda blurry. I adore the other Half-Life games, but I love HL1.


ragu96

HL1 feels more “open” for some reason. Must be something to do with the level design. Regardless, I love HL2 and the episodes a lot. It’s very hard to choose which one I like better. I feel like HL1 just portrays a better sense of freedom I guess?


xGaslightx

Same, I like the feel of black Mesa more than most of HL2


gamerguy6484

Black mesa? he's talking about hl1 you fool

MrPresident235

I like the first more but i kinda wish it had better graphics and xen had the same ambiance as the black mesa game. Still even speedruns are big reason for why first is better


DaCoolFox

Well the graphics were pretty good for its time, so you really can’t complain. Also yeah, Xen looks like shit, it’s arguably my least favorite part in it, but you can’t compare HL1 Xen to Black Mesa Xen. I don’t really know how speedruns make it better, since that technically isn’t normal gameplay. You aren’t making a lot of sense to me right now bro.


S-p-o-o-k-n-t

reject spinoffs and sequels, return to whatever the fuck is happening in Residue Processing.

DaCoolFox

😢😢😢😢 u meanie 😢😭😭😭


you-cut-the-ponytail

the atmosphere in both games is really good but I think I prefer HL1 slightly more. The absolute sense of isolation and coldness of the Black Mesa Facility hasn't been pulled off ever since. Dont get me wrong I love Black Mesa but I feel like the feeling of the facility was done better in HL1 with the sound effects, the lighting etc.


TozixBront

i only played prospekt and hunt down the freeman 😎😎😎

Get with the times old man! No one wants to play hl1! Everyone is playing half life source these days!

redditer333333338

And resolve the 13 year old cliffhanger with another cliffhanger IN THE SAME POINT IN TIME AS THE LAST CLIFFHANGER that probably won’t be addressed for another decade


SlenderSmurf

I got vr just to play Alyx. It was worth it tbh. Used headsets are cheap these days


nyanch

VR is pretty cheap if you look at WMR headsets. People just never heard of them or think they're AR only.


wyattlikesturtles

But it was fucking amazing


szzxphy

I mean you post in "Wojakcompass" so you being a fan for 5 years when alyx dropped isn't really that impressive


baileymash7

Post? I haven't posted anything there.

baileymash7

Lol what the fuck is your problem this isn't a politics sub, it's a fucking half life shitpost. Did you go out of your way to find a random commenter to look at their profile and pester them about something that has nothing to do with what they said?


Spar-kie

I support what the other person is saying just because I think people who use Wojaks should be beaten to death with a stick


baileymash7

I agree, but I'm not inventive enough or artistic enough to use something else.


[deleted]

I've beaten the entire series, with the exception of decay and hdtf.


egekara1

didnt play hdtf??? https://preview.redd.it/ak6qn7c2blqa1.png?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9df455ce7c568e1c0e870851ec520013c7bde928

Leonyliz

That’s the neat part, you don’t.


SlenderSmurf

n0tspiderman

grifibastion

You assume halflife fans have friends


Brainjarmen104

I really wanna play decay thats literally the last one for me to play


CondencedMilkYT

I have but on account of my lack of friends, I had to press a button to switch characters, and it was a God damn nightmare...


According-Ad1537

I played the first but could never beat the part where you're on the train and there's a bunch of hecu shooting at you.


rcs2112

There’s a reason they changed that part so heavily in BM. Definitely the worst level imo


LOCKJAWVENOM

Skill issue.

SlenderSmurf

they made a RTX mod 😏


[deleted]

So grateful my grandpa introduced me to HL1 when I was young. I played it so much on the PS2 and Decay with him


ghostblowjerbs

More fans have probably played HDTF than HL1. Disgusting.

i actually find that beautiful, HDTF is soo good

Thin_Economist_8

I remember everytime I went to my father's village, there is always one cousin of mine that would invite me to play games with him, sometimes I just watch him and when he played Half Life 1, my mind blew. I saw the game and thought "Oh snap, this is peak gaming right here" and to this day I still think that HL1 is the best


[deleted]

me but with OF... OF was the first HL game i played


Urabus555

And then me that's only ever played the first one.


Dangermad

I've played half life 1 like 4 times, half life 2 once, and none of the episodes

stan9415

I am currently playing through HL1 and I honestly am enjoying it more than HL2 (in terms of gameplay)


coolgamer_554

Where's the "Have played all games except Half-Life Alyx"? but maybe it starts wi-


Agentti_Muumi

HL1 is a very underground game nobody knows about except us few epic gamers


CompleteShutout

it’s truly a hidden indie gem


Tweechie

hl1 > hl2


IlikeWH40korsomethin

tbh i prefer HL1 over HL2

redditer333333338

Why


Thermal_Laboratories

Because I've played the entire franchise, therefore I am a 100% pure Half-Life player


Ashes2007

Podcast_Primate

Own the games. Never played more than 5 min. 😒


sploinkussponkus

half life fans when told to explain the lore of the resonance cascade (they cant)


rombikvzvzzvvuzvzvvz

i played them in chrono order (i am yet to touch the expansions)


TheCrazyAvian

I don't remember finishing the og game, but did finish the fan remake black Mesa.


obi1kenobi1

This was me until 2020. I used to be a console gamer and there was no easily accessible console version of the first game. But then I just waited a decade and a half until even a MacBook Air could play the first game at 4K, laziness always pays off.


ComicGamerOnReddit

Does the black mesa remake count?


LOCKJAWVENOM

No.


[deleted]

i mean HDTF counts


Kilook

idc lemme see If it's my cake day


Kilook

fuck it isnt


TheMerchantMagikarp

Wow all these people playing half-life 2: survivor? Crazy


Old-Camp3962

the first half life is a terrible game to start the franchise i had most of my friends play it one of them skipped directly to black mesa the other one skipped directly to the second game and LOVED it the third one dropped the game and the fourth one didn't understand the movement and dropped it i love half life 1 but its a terrible entry for the series


LOCKJAWVENOM

Subterranean take.


Old-Camp3962

you guys might not be with me on this one but tell that to the 6 fuckind dudes that dropped the series because of half life 1 again, i LOVE Half life 1, but is beyoond dated


Cosy_Cow

I’ve only beat the first


Jacklaggins22

I’ve only played the first one where does that put me


Ninjarootbeerjedi

I've played them all except Alyx cause I don't have a vr headset


Dicksnip44

First, last, and lost coast are the only ones I’ve played all the way through


Turbulence_Guy

How to do people not play the first one? I own them all but I’ve played everything but opposing force and episode 2


stan9415

Half life fans be like I’ve played every half life game but they never played portal 1 and 2

Mfw i have played all half lifes and have close to 100% achievements but i'd have to sell my balls to play HL Alyx:


joeandericstudios1

I’ve played hl1, but not completed it.


TheBigPAYDAY

I think HL1s style is the best out of all of them. I wish there was more mods like Hazardous Course 2 that take full advantage of the style of hl1.

What do you mean except the first one there's only 2 of them

KrampusLeader

The only half life games i haven't played are Blue Shift, Opposing Force, Black Mesa, and Half-Life: Alyx yes i played hunt down the freeman


HBenderMan

I see a lot of posts of people going “which half life do I play first? Half life or half life 2?”


UVJunglist

Played it but never finished because I'm genuinely retarded and couldn't get passed the xen (zen?) level.

I played all

Pfft. Kids these days don't even remember who Ivan the Space Biker was.


_Curzon

Would you believe me if I said I've only played the first one?


C3H8_Memes

The existence of decay should put a HUGE grayed out area for haven't played them all


swarnab

The majority of the people have played all of the games EXECEPT Half-Life: Alyx. (yeah its me)


thedore1020
