    I'm thinking of getting it but I'm not sure how well it's aged. Is it still good or does it feel archaic?

    I like it, it's got that papery oldschool fps feel, but there's also the one on the source engine with the same graphics but almost unnoticible default change but tweakable. Then there's black mesa which is on steam early access.

    I recently installed xash on my android phone and have it playing the original half life game files pretty smoothly on lunch breaks, I like it.

    It feels ancient. Blocky, and feels like not enough story or something. Can't place my finger on it but I know I like it for nostalgic reasons.

    It's a game that I recommend everyone should play! It has got this classic feel to it!

    I highly recommend it! It's great for weaker CPUs, and has a great story.
    Don't Half-Life 2 without playing the first one.
