I often see complaints that new mods don’t include new content, such as textures, modles, sounds etc. Personally I’m not too worried about those things because I prefer to have a great map and gameplay than new things just for the sack of it.
So, this week’s poll question is:
Would you prefer new enemies or new weapons in a new Half-Life 2 SP mod?
For me the answer is clear: New Enemies. I can download plenty of new weapons from a number of websites. What I can’t get are new enemies. Sure I can download new skins for existing enemies but that’s not the same.
Of course using a well-designed new weapon is a lot of fun and you only need to look at those download sites I mentioned (But didn’t link to!) earlier and you can find plenty of great new weapons.
The question is: do you agree with me?
Perhaps more importantly “What can Valve or the community do to make creating new enemies easier?”
