Duhh CoD! HL2 won't be anything special until the mods come out which won't be for another year. Get CoD!

HALF LIFE 2:-----19/11/03 -long campaign (40-60 hrs) -bleeding-edge graphics -cool storyline -unparallel technology

CALL OF DUTY:-----4/11/03 -OK campaign (20-40 hrs) -OK graphics (very last squeeze out of the Q3 engine) -authentic weapons -historical accuracy -intense immersion

tell me how i choose.....

Simple buy one, steal the other. I don't know what I'd do, cause I'm just gonna get both anyway.

"buy one steal the other" hmm....... ;) :naughty:

Hmmm...tough choice there, but I'm a sucka for realism, so I'm gonna stick with CoD for the time being, but I guess it really just comes down to what you prefer in a game, I like to be able to associate with the game I'm playing, and I find that games vaguely based on a historical event help me to do so...

Trust me Razor, HL2 won't be anything special unless you were into the story of the first one. Wait 'til some mods release alphas/betas (if any) then get HL2 for like 20 bucks. CoD will keep you occupied 'til they finish DoD2 and Band of Brothers :)

I think HL2 will be a good game, lots are anticipating it I am also. I'm for all high quality FPS which both these games will be. But like Tom said, it will really depend on what you want in a game. I also prefer realism. I also like games loosly based on historical events. WWII games work for me. CoD is everything people thought Spearhead was going to be..but wasnt. It's the game many MOH players have been waiting for. I will be getting both so I can setup both divisions for my clan. But I am the most excited about CoD seeing as it is the type of game I prefer. (also there is no guarentee that HL2 wont be pushed out some more.. I mean..they didnt really specify what holiday season they were refering to, Thanksgiving? Christmas? 4th of July? :)...just joking there but the point is you might be able to afford it when itcomes out..even if you buy CoD. I mean come on.. it's not like it's $500 bucks. Clean the garage out or something between now and then.

That was no help whatsoever but oh well.....

i would just go with whatever you can run at higher quality, sadly for me, im not sure i will be able to squeeze anything but the bare bones out of hl2 :(
