Half-Life 2 is generally a good game, sweet graphics. But there are loads of things that still can be increased in the game. Such as the weapons, barely any second / special fires, and the story line could also be improve loads. But the Half-Life series is really awesome due Modification possibilities.

Yea, Black Mesa: Source being an example of this. The pics of it look amazing. I can't wait until it is released. :nodding:
I dont think its the best game ever, but it really fun
The game itself (single player) may not be the best. But the modifications would actually turn this game in the best game ever really.
I like HL2. The things I like best about HL2 are the graphics, the physics, the realism, and the storyline. The story that is evident in the game isn't actually much, but the background story to HL2 can be very complex, although little is actually know.
It's not so much the story, it's the way it's told, and the atmosphere of the game. Thgat alone makes it one of the best SP games I have ever played. Far Cry for example, while on many levels just as good as HL2, had very little atmosphere (probably because of the lack of any friendly characters, and the terrible voice acting)

I do think that HL2 is the best game ever made. However, I miss the great atmosphere and feeling from Half-Life 1. I think HL1 is as good as HL2, although Source did have some very neat features in 2004.
In my opinion, HL2 had a slightly better atmosphere than HL1. It was the oppression, the faces of the resistance members, the way City 17 and indeed most places in the game were so utterly believable that did it for me. However, we shall see what BlackMesaSource will do.
