This is the best FPS ever made, seriously. The graphics are great (if you have them on high settings). The graphics are far better than DOOM 3, and it doesn't require that much from your pc. This games doesn't only offer groundbreaking graphics, it also offers addictive gameplay, a gravity gun and top class physics. You could spend all day using the gravity gun to mess around with the physics. No fps at the moment can match Half life 2's greatness. Not Halo 2, not FEAR, nothing. Not only is this game a fantastic one by itself, this games also spawns other amazing mods such as Counterstrike Source and Day of Defeat Source. If you have a pc, an internet connection for Steam, and you have $20 in your wallet, you know what to do. You must experience this game at least some point during your life. If you haven't already got Half life 2, what are you doing!? GO now!
