Next year, 2008, sees the tenth anniversary of the release of Half-life. Since we live in a decimal system it only seems fitting that it is commemorated in some special way. I’ve been thinking about how to do that here on PlanetPhillip but still have plenty of time to play with ideas. However, on a much bigger note I think we should petition Valve to organize a convention.
Imagine a two or three day convention with the typical events that happen at those sorts of things: guest speakers, demonstrations, discussion groups, workshops for playing and mapping, Q and A sessions with the developers, meet the voices sessions, trivia quizzes etc etc. The list must be huge.
Somewhere in the desert would be cool or better still some disused military base, similar to Black Mesa. Okay, back to reality, just a regular convention center would be fine preferably in my home town, B.E.C. maybe?. But failing that I suppose somewhere in the USA. Actually there should be three North America, Europe and the Far East.
If I could afford the flight, because let’s be honest there would only be one in the world and that would be in the States, then yes. If enough people reply too this post then perhaps we can really contact Valve and see what they say.
What do you think?
