slashmani actually think the delaying was for the best....think about it.....at the time everybody was talkin about hl2 and over hyping it. although its been a long wait its been enough time for every1 to calm down and stop worrying about it. also the game would have been a flop had it been released back then. but for me its gameplay graphics then sound

its called a patch... damn. atleast we couldhave screwed around with the gravity gun while waiting. that would have entertained me long enough

I completely disagree with Oopma and Gimpy. I totally agree with slashman, if they had released it back then it WOULD have been a flop, thats right. You guys are obviously not tru HL2 fans or very hardcore gamers. Of course, a gamer who knows his/hers shit doesnt want a faulty game thats crap that will be "Fixed with a couple of patches". No, they want thier moneys worth and for it to be right the first time

Absoloutely.I want a totally finished product. Patches to add content or add new features are fine to me, but not to FIX stuff. Nik: put {/quote} after "and over hyping it."

I agree that a game should be as bugless as possible when it comes out but the changeing relese dates is sorta cural I would have just gone the id way "It's done when its done". The redelaying it and pushing back release dates is making alot of people think that means its going to be alot better when they are only fixing bugs and so forth thus i think some people will be disappointed. people were disapointed with doom3 even though it is a superb game that kicks butt. I don't want that to happen to Half-Life 2.

EVERYONE who knows anything about computer gaming will BUY HL2, even if it got delayed another month. Remember two words. Perfect Dark. *some people who used to be console gamers will know what im talking about*

its not ganna be right when it comes out... no game that I know of has not patch, every single one has had a bug fix patch of a gameplay fairness patch. I would have liked it back then while they patch it up. Consider this.... in september of 2003 they said it would be done... well it must have been pretty close for them to make that date... and after that it was only little bug fixes and right before they aboutt to realease the hackers come in. so IT WAS basically done... if they released it in sept with few bugs the source wouldnt have been stolen...

I bought perfect dark the day it came out. It was way better than goldeneye and IMO was the best game on the N64.
