Developed in 1998 by Valve Software, Half-Life is one of the most influential games ever invented. Revolutionizing story telling in shooters by giving the player complete control, managing to tell a story without using cut-scenes, Half-Life revolutionized video games, and set the standard for single player video games.

This mod is an excellent recreation of an even more excellent game.


Perhaps one of the largest impacts of Half-Life's legacy is the series of mods that followed. Influential games such as Team Fortress, Day of Defeat and Counter-strike used the Goldsource engine to rise to prominence.
