A few days ago on the HalfLife SubReddit quimralho asked Why is the game called Half-Life? What is the relation of the title and the game?
It’s a question that is often asked, by new and seasoned players alike. Most often people talk about the decay of radioactivity etc but it doesn’t really address the question.
However, this time scriminamp got right to the heart of the issue with a very funny, and quite sad really, answer.
The game is called half-life because it takes half your f*%king life for a squeal to come out.
It was then suggested by Don that this would make a good poll question, so here it is.
Just a quick note to apologize for not having properly prepared the question before it became visible.
