I liked it but I've been a half-life junkie for a long time now.
I can't wait for the next episode...

I played it through the first time with a Radeon 7200. I missed a LOT of stuff though. The whole "rise and shine" beginning was a black screen.
The recommended settings with my 9550 are pretty impressive.

I can't see anyone getting getting more than 2 hours out of it unless they are playing through an Intel IGP.

I often find myself playing with things in the game just to see how cool the graphics are.

Who doesn't! I like a game that does that! It adds an extra dimension to the gameplay.
I also like games where you have a choice what storyline/course you take.

Used to be that a game gave you 40-60 hours of gameplay for $50 and an add on or expansion pack would give you half of that for $20.

But back then people complained about spending hours pushing around boxes and making the same jumps and fighting through mazes or warehouses that seemed unnaturally long.

Also games are much more complicated. There is a whole lot more art work and design needed. I'm not using that to excuse the shortend games of today. But why put in the effort when people are willing to pay for less as long as you tell them about the physics and lighting involved.

Good points all. Added to which I still get them for $20.00, I just have to wait. Which is probably why I felt a fuller offering was in order.

I think I got Doom 3 for $30 and D3R for $20.00

I got the half-life something or other that had HL1, CS, Opposing Force, TFC, all for $40 1 year after it had released. I got at least 40 hours out of HL1 at normal difficulty and I am nowhere near completing OF. And of course CS has no beginning or end, it just sucks your life through an internet connection. One summer I spent over 2 hours a day shooting up de_dust.
