7 Questions for 2007

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

With 2007 only a few days away I present 7 questions that I hope to be answered next year. I probably could have written 70 questions but that would have been a very long, and probably boring, article! Read on to see if your burning questions are included. At the bottom is a short list of questions I didn’t include.

Kill Yourself – Half-Life

for Half-Life

About A simple map that allows you to spawn enemies etc. Not exactly the most exciting map in the world but I’m sure some readers will enjoy it. Reader Recommendations Avoid It!

Poll Question 009 – Which is your most anticipated game of 2007?

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

This week’s poll moves away from the recent trend of discussing the actual gameplay and instead tries to find out exactly what game you are most anticipating for 2007.

As with all polls the answers are nearly always “It depends!”. and this one is no different.

Imagine, for whatever reason, you can only buy one FPS game next year, which one would it be?

Poll Question 008 – Do you prefer to play alone or with a squad?

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

I’m an only child. This means I have no brothers or sisters.

I developed the ability to play on my own. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons I play SP games, who knows.

One aspect that was introduced into Half-Life 2 that I didn’t like was the Squad feature. I recognize that having a squad around you varies the style of gameplay but I prefer to play alone.
