A Tale About A Tail!

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Imagine you woke up one morning with an itch in your lower back. This itch just got worse no matter how much you scratched it. Then over the coming weeks you noticed a protrusion where your coccyx is. This protrusion got longer and longer.

Colour Blindness

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

I’m a little older than the average gamer, not the oldest I know but still at an age where my contemporaries consider my hobby as childish. A typical Monday morning conversation could be:

ME: “FPS Computer Games”.
THEM: “You still play games at your age, I would have thought you would have grown out of that by now”.
