Poll Question 264 – Have you ever immediately replayed map or mod?

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

I have no idea where this poll question came from, it just popped into my head.

I rarely replay mods, even after months or years, so playing it again immediately after is totally alien to me.

I do know that many readers replay the games regularly, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to replay mods.

Let me know of any interesting stories or anecdotes you have of replaying stuff.

Your flashbulb memories of Half-Life games.

Wikipedia defines Flashbulb Memories as “a highly detailed, exceptionally vivid ‘snapshot’ of the moment and circumstances in which a piece of surprising and consequential (or emotionally arousing) news was heard.”

We normally associate flashbulb memories with incredibly sociological events and I in no way want to belittle these types of events or their consequences by comparing our mini-memories of videos games to these events.

“Prisoner is a set of maps for the game Half Life. Unlike most custom Half Life levels, Prisoner does not feature new weapons, monsters, or gameplay elements.

In fact, Prisoner does not feature any weapons, monsters, or gameplay of any kind. Prisoner is a small art project about virtual space and first person perspective.

Games Room – Half-Life 2: Ep2

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

“Your goal is to open the main door, by finding 4 numbers to the door code.

You can obtain this numbers by winning in 4 games. You can also guess all numbers just by rotating the wheels (but this is very unlikely). For now the door code is fixed, that’s mean is not random and it’s always the same.

After you beat the map for the first time, you know the code. My next step is to implement random generated code for the door.

There is no story. Just do whatever you want to do and have fun. Try everything in gameroom.”
