We all love the movies, don’t we? Action, romance, intrigue, the Half-Life series has them all. So….
Which Half-Life game would you prefer to see as a movie?
Put the non-speaking Freeman issue aside for a moment. Just think about the settings and story. Maybe go one step further and do a little re imagining like they did with Planet Of The Apes.
Could be a really dark, thriller. Double and triple cross from the scientists etc. Never knowing who to trust and what is around the next corner.
More action than Half-Life. Definitely got a main character that could suit movies goers. Typical Hollywood fodder. Not as much depth as the first but maybe the most successful.
I can just see the trailer now. “A regular guy just doing his job….Finds himself in a situation where his actions could save hundreds of lives….Will his training be enough or will he need to draw on reserves nobody knew he had? Barney Calhoun, a regular guy or hero?”
Could have been made for the big screen…big views, big enemies, big story, BIG ending. What else is needed? Well, perhaps more than just “big”. Is there really enough to keep the viewer happy? Perhaps Alyx is enough?
To be perfectly honest I can’t remember much about this mini-game. In fact I can’t even be bothered to search my cobwebbed memory for the details. Besides the final level, which is one of my all time favourites!
Now, this just maybe the the winner. Plenty of opportunities for story development, lots of actions scenes and an action finale that would blow you socks or stockings off. Not as spectacular as HL2 visually but still very interesting.
Why not also add which actor/actress you liked to see in the starring roles?
