Many of us know the part of the game where you use the gravity gun to shoot sawblades at zombies. Now I was thinking how cool it would be to chop off just the zombies head. So I took a sawblade off the wall and aimed for the zombies neck. I shot and it cut the zombie in half through it's Torso. I figure I must have missed so I shoot at another zombie. Yet again the same thing happens. I did this about 20 times just to find out that valve made it impossible to chop a zombie in anyother way then in half through the waist. I think this is completely retarded but I still love hl2.
I don't spend enough time here

minor flaw that doesnt affect gameplay...
I agree thats why I still love Half-Life 2. But I remember people complaing that you couldn't cut off the limbs of zombies in Doom3. Half-Life 2 did better but not by much.
What are these damn animals?

Yeah, I think thats kind of stupid, but the rest of the game is so good that it doesnt really matter.

lack of detail there indeed ...but i didnt mind since its hardcore enough to chop them in half :D
your just being picky now :P well on a serious note..... I dont know if this is actually going to happen but, apparantly parents and other people have been complaining about the high level of detail in games and they think it effects people when playing. I.E GTA, people see how to steal a car they so they go out and do it. etc (so these other people that are complaining think) they are thinking about toning graphics and gameplay in games down due to this fact which i think just sucks. apprantly in germany they have already done this buy changing the blood effects to green or orange which i think is just pointless. Put it this way if these effects do ever go ahead i aint gunna buy computer games anymore. only reason why i buy them is becasue of the gr8 gameplay and realisum. I say....wack all the game ratings to 18 and if they buy the game and still try and do the crimes or stunts let them. 18 means your suppose to be more mature to handle things that life gives you.
Like the saying goes...guns don't kill people, people kill people... and just because one whacked out kid in our society decides to use a game they enjoy as a scapegoat...the rest of society has to suffer. Now we get parents involved cause oh no its not my bad parenting that screwed up my kid...its those violent games that I bought (ahem) he got that drove him into a world of violence and anger. Lets face the facts and stop denying our kids of the truth and reality. Its time for discussions with our youths about what is real violence and game violence. Trying vainly to deny them of the facts is as much a problem. Youths without facts, information is a uneducated and misguided youth. So deny our youths...go ahead but I'd rather my kids grow up knowing the truth about our society than have them blinded by what our society judge as unacceptable for their eyes.
Doesn't matter if I am being picky I am just saying it was pissing me off that people were complaing that in doom3 you couldn't cut of limbs. Hl2 is a bit better but not by much.

HL2 absolutely Rapes Doom3, which was just nice graphics and good atmospheres, with crap gameplay.
Anyway, I thought dismemberment, such as the removal of heads, has been made illegal in places like Germany and Australia, so didnt they just stay away from legal stuff?
I know it does.
That would be really stupid. It shows how close we are to being under socialist rule.
