Poll Question 006 – Which type of enemy do you prefer to play against?

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

The types of enemies we face are very important. If they are too difficult, then it spoils the game, too easy and it makes the game boring.

They have to fit with the overall theme of the game and they need to be varied. There are essentially two types of enemy: umanoid (Bipedal – Two legs, standing upright) and Non-Humanoid (Everything else! Headcrabs, Antlions etc).

This weeks questions is simple: Which do you prefer to play against?

Changing Genres

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

I’ve played, or should I say, started to play, a few 3rd person shooters. Splinter Cell Demo (I think), Metal Gear Solid (Again, I think. That’s the the Snake guy, right?) and maybe a few others, but I hated them. Seriously, I really disliked them.

End of Level Secrets Stats

About I’m nearly finished play Star Trek Elite Force 2 and at the end of each level, the image to the right appears just before you exit. It sounds good in principle but the designers didn’t really think it through.

Poll Question 005 – What type of weapon do you prefer?

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

Weapons are a curious thing. We all have our favorite and will fight and argue to the death to defend our choice.

In fact they can make or break a game. Weapons can be broken down into two types: Conventional Weapons (shotgun, pistol, machine gun, grenades etc) and Sci- Fi Weapons (Gluon guns, Hivehands, pulse rifles etc.

So, this weeks poll question is simple; which do you prefer?
