    Cool, I've actually never played them. Are they all canon?

    Oh boy! Now people can replay the games again, then be reminded that Episode 2 ended on a cliffhanger and they will never see the series get finished :^)

    scumbag Valve, introducing more audience to a cliffhanger that has never been resolved since a decade ago.

    You're in for a ride then! HL1 still aged well in terms of controls and level design (crouch jumping aside), and HL2 is arguably one of the greatest first person shooters of all time. Both games still stand out in how they tell a story seamlessly and interactively, without a single jumpcut or cutscene; there's just not many games before or after that managed (or even tried) to do it as well as Half-Life did.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    HL1 is the starting point for canon, HL2 is a sequel that happens decades later, and HL2: Episode 1+2 continue where HL2 left off. Those four are canon. Blue Shift and Opposing Force are side-stories that happen during events of HL1 - they may be canon, may be not, but they have no bearing on overall story (at least as of early 2020), so you can skip those.

    Gotta be ready in case half life 3 comes out before I die, it's like the apocalypse pretty much.

    Team Fortress Classic is also part of the Half Life bundle, so, yay.

    I...think it's safe to say that those who haven't played a half life game at this point in their lives aren't interested in it. So valve is just banking on hoping it'd renew interest from the already existing fanbase.


    Personally: I'd be interested if they got black mesa on it as well, but of course: as that isn't exactly their property (even if it's a remake), I'll pass. I mean...I don't have the cash to shell out for a newer PC that can handle VR (mine is...just somewhat below minimum specs), so...sorry.

    Nice gesture, though. :)

    There is a free mod on the steam store called synergy that adds multiplayer co-op for at least hl 2, ep 1, and ep 2. It does some other games too I think but ya, it's pretty fun.

    That's nice I suppose, though I already own 2+E1/E2 when I bought the Orange box fucking forever ago, and I own Black Mesa so the OG Half Life 1 is meh now.
