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.

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.
A retrospective on Half-Life
Named Game of the Year by over 50 publications, Valve's debut title blends action and adventure with award-winning technology to create a frighteningly realistic world where players must think to survive. Also includes an exciting multiplayer mode that allows you to play against friends and enemies around the world.
I am not sponsored or endorsed by Valve in any manner, I simply love this game.
