I concur with Danny’s assesment of Half-Life 2. He hit the nail on the head. Like Sierra games of the past, which we celebrate here, this is a landmark acheivment in gaming technology and story-telling. The graphics far surpass any other engine out today, including anything from id or Activision. Most importantly, it displays the Sierra name quite prominently, I might add. Yes, the Steam issue can be annoying, but I can live with it.
Yes, yes, I know it is not a Kings’ Quest or Leisure Suit Larry, etc, I love those games as much as the next person hear, but we need to realize gaming genre’s change from time to time. Remember Half-Life 1 was an important part of the “Good ‘Ol Sierra” history and I for one am glad to see its name contune on a very important impact game of today.
