Half-Life Mods

The following are Half-Life mods I have played

Valve Corporation. All Half-Life 2 mods below are made possible, thanks to Valve Corporation.

Eclipse. A wonderful fantasy mod set in a magical realm. One of my all time favorites. I have not played this for some time and I have heard that it has trouble working on the current source engine. Player beware.

Minerva. A mod that produced an odd feeling of intense loneliness and yet at the same time, a feeling of being close to Minerva.

Someplace Else. The prequel to Minerva. A mod that will make the Minerva storyline even more mysterious.

Weekday Warrior. A very fun mod. A refreshing change from the typical Half-Life 2 mod. Full of bright colors, with a lighthearted tone of gameplay.

Garry's Mod. I used to play around in Garry's Mod back in the day. My favorite thing to do was launch all manner of items into the air.

Combine Destiny. This mod has what I think, one of the coolest names ever for a mod. It really evokes a grand adventure and some great destiny for me.

Mistake Of Pythagoras. Uh, what can I say here. One of the strangest mods I have ever come across. I enjoyed this mod a great deal. It certainly threw me for a loop.

Shantytown. I can't really remember much about this mod. I do remember this mod being somewhat different from the typical mods out there.


The following are Half-Life 2 mods that I have not yet played but I would like to when I have the time

Black Mesa Source. The greatest mod yet to come. Like waiting for an eternal Christmas. Anybody who says their not interested is a liar.

Flipside. This looks like a lot of fun.

GoldenEye. Bond, James Bond. This mod does not seem to have a dedicated website, instead relying on dowload services dedicated to games. This link is for http://www.moddb.com/mods/goldeneye-source

Neotokyo. This looks interesting. I have always liked Neo Tokyo's.

Misc. Games

Far Cry. Wow, just wow. When I played this for the first time, I was just floored. It was so exciting. A real jungle adventure with mutated monsters, a sexy CIA agent, bad ass mercenaries and 2 mad scientist.

Silent Hunter III. A submarine simulator, specifically World War II German U-boats. I liked this game alot. I liked the fact that you could spend days in real time just traveling. Sometimes I would start heading out to my destination and go to bed and then wake up in the morning to find myself hundreds of miles closer to my destination. Very cool.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. I love this game. Vibrant colors and pretty good graphics. The story is wonderful and even made me a bit teary eyed in a few places. I consider this the best DS game ever.

Halo: Combat Evolved. I bought the PC version. This game was slow at first and seemed to be a generic FPS, but as the story progressed, it became more exciting and engrossing. At the very end in the race for the spaceship, it was incredible.

Deus Ex. One of the best video games ever made. This made me feel... hard to describe. A larger than life experience. At times I felt lonely, the world was against me. A vast international conspiracy and worldwide struggle for human rights everywhere. So many paths to choose from, good or evil. I remember New York and the bar. The bar felt alive, it had that desperate times feel, a real sense of foreboding. The amazing travel around the world was also incredible, from New York to Paris, France to the dessert to underground sewers. I will never forget this game in my lifetime. A true phenomenon of our times that mirrors todays real world that we live in. Sometimes when I think of this game and the real world that we live in, I become despondent about our future, but JC Denton does inspire hope for the future. I strongly urge you to play this game if you have not already.

Deus Ex: Invisible War. Pretty darn good follow up to Deus Ex. The one single scene that sums up the entire game is the elevator down to lower Seattle. When you first get on the elevator and it starts to move and the music is playing... wow. The endings you can choose from are gut wrenching. I chose the Omar even as I knew that I would be an artifact of the past, a strange sense of being, choosing something that you are not a part of and condemning yourself and others like yourself to extinction.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This game was the first time I had played in a truly open game world. Go anywhere and do anything. I loved exploring and traveling all the roads and trails. My favorite city is Chorrol and Chorrol was my base of operations, a very pleasant town with a quiet atmosphere.

Rise of Nations. A fun game that I mostly played in sandboxed mode. Never cared for human vs human or computer. I prefered computer versus computer. I always wished that computer vs computer would work over LAN or internet.
