Okay, got a question, in half life 2 the Normal view is kinda zoomed in...

If you are on coast level, look at a wall.... then stare at the same wall while going into ur jeep, it zooms out..... why is the normal view zoomed in... it limits ur view a bit

if there is any way you guys know how to change this please, post lol

I noticed it. If you look at screenshots of a widescreen you can obviously see more to the left and the right. this also applys to counterstrike and i think it should be fixed immediately.

Valve has posted information about this, and is there for a reason for it. The beta testers for HL2 were getting sick and vomiting while in vehicles. In order to reduce the amount of "car sickness", they forced the game to zoom out when entering vehicles. However, they also said that leaving it zoomed out when walking around cause many of the NPC's faces to be stretched out and look funny. Thus, forcing them to make it zoom back in when getting out of vehicles.

aw well that blows, i highly hate that zoomed view.... it limits our view and its harder to ..... okay.. example you have to look all the way down to see if soemthings on the floor... instead of only looking half way and seeing it......... nvm its hard to explain

its just hard to actually focus when the view is zoomed... i wihs they had an option to get rid of it

I like more of 3rd person kind of view like Max Payne, btw, if you want to know if the player is zoomed or not, just look down to see the feet and imagine the angle of how much you can see of the feet. I don't know and I can't say bec. I haven't played the game yet.
