  • Black Mesa

In the beginning, there was Half-Life, and it was SO GOOD. Half-Life was a game that changed the world in many ways. It redefined storytelling for modern day shooters, showing that one can be deep, have world building, and yet not take players out of the experience via "silent" cutscenes. Since then, Half-Life has been one of the most important games in video game history. It spawned a franchise, one that fans are still trying to keep alive today. Including remaking the original game in the Source Engine it was born into. This is Black Mesa.

Fans talk a lot about how well they can "make video games", but in Black Mesa, they really do prove it. For this title isn't just a recreation of the original Half-Life, it's a title that does everything it can to make the original experience, and then make it better. The graphics, the sound effects, the gameplay, everything is on point, and everything was made by fans. This game has gotten numerous awards, and it's all for good reason.

You might be looking at this and thinking, "so what, they remade the game, what's the big deal?" Well, it's a very big deal, for as noted, they took the main game and made it better. But not just via details and sharpened sound. They added new dialogue scenes, gave the game completely new voice acting, made the game more stable, more fun, and added lots of unique things that truly makes Black Mesa their own.

Plus, you can play with friends via multiplayer, add your own parts to the game via modding tools, and more! So don't just play Half-Life, experience it anew with Black Mesa.

Black Mesa is a fantastic and very long in the making remake of the first Half-Life, with the only problem with it being that it's missing Gearbox's excellent expansions. The good news is that modding team the HECU Collective are working on bringing Blue Shift to Black Mesa - and it's just released Chapter 2. Black Mesa: Blue Shift began development following the cancellation of a similar mod in 2015, and just received its first release in March this year - consisting of Blue Shift's first chapt...

It was 2004. Nvidia's 6800 GPU was the new kid on the block, mechanical drives wept at Doom 3's crushing 2.2GB storage requirements, and the Pentium 4 was still the go-to CPU. Half-Life 2 had finally lurched from the depths of development hell, overcoming source code leaks and a series of costly delays. After struggling to download patches for the game through some weird program called Steam (it'll never catch on), the community would finally see what Valve had been working on for the past five ...
