Regular readers will know that I never replay mods. Although that may be about to change. There’s been such a dearth of good mods lately I think I’ll try a few good ones again.
The only time I have replayed a mod was Das Roboss and that was because I needed new screenshots. In fact, that’s another reason I will be replaying a lot of mods over the coming year, I want to ensure the older mods all have screenshots and are in the same format as the most recent additions.
Anyway, eagle-eyed readers will recognize Minerva: Metastasis used in the header image of this poll, and that’s the first mod I plan to replay, probably on Friday. I’ll even try and add some panoramic views.
Back to the topic though. I know a lot of readers replay their favourite mods and probably just as many replay the games but I can’t seem to. I need a much longer gap between the first play and the second. In fact I don’t think I’ve completely replayed ANY of the HL games! I did try to replay HL2 last year but stopped because I almost got bored.
I think it would be a valuable exercise, just to see how my memory serves me. I have recently been rereading some favourite books and I am surprised at how they differ from what I remember. I seemed to have enlarged certain characters and situations in my mind, when in reality both are quite minor. I wonder if the same will be said of the mods.
I am looking forward to playing Minerva again because the first time I played it in the 3 separate parts, but this time it will be one long run through, which in itself will be different.
Some side questions:
What game have you most replayed (Not necessarily HL franchise)?
What mod have you played the most and how many times?
