I feel guilty, I’ve always had this cloud hanging over my head and it’s.something that I’ve never come clean with. I’ve never played Half Life on PC, only on PS2. Even though the PS2 version came out two months later. At the time it still felt special to me, it wasn’t something I’ve experienced before, sure it wasn’t as good as the PC version, I still enjoyed it even with all of it’s flaws on PS2.
When it came out I was 11 and the idea of a first person shooter on a console was still a very foreign to me. It took me numerous hours to complete and I needed the support of my uncle to get me through it.
Now 13 years later, I see someone beat it in 20 minutes and 41 seconds, I now feel as if my childhood is a complete waste.
