I never thought the Half Life series scary to be honest. Sure, when I was 12, maybe I was scared then, but now, it's just thrilling! Can't wait for their release, maybe bundled with Portal 2!!!

For a game we know absolutely nothing about, I know it will be awesome. Need proof? Evidence: L4D, L4D2, HL, HL 2, HL E1, HL E2, TF 2, CS, CSS, Portal, to be released Portal 2, etc. Valve is virtually unblemished in the developer field. How could it not be good?

Valve does a lot of things right. Their Episodic release schedule, however...

Episodic = additional content, same engine. Time = months. Time != years.

The most 'terrifying' thing on HL2 would have been on Return to Ravenholm when those fast things (not sure of know name) would come of of nowhere and shoot you. More surprising than anything, I guess. Still, HL2 is the best PC game I've ever played. Tons of replay value in it.

Valve is one of my favorite game devs out there, with games ranging from excellent to epic ...the only bad thing about them is that they make us to wait years between game relases :/

And IMO i think the delays with the next game of HL series is (rumors say) more related to the fact that valve is working on creating a new game engine... source engine is quite outdeted now, if they want to stay on the cutting edge on visuals (and they usually are).

Striek L4D and L4D2 off that list of greats. Sure, the first one was a good concept... too bad they screwed it up with an ancient game engine and poor coding. Not to mention releasing the second one so soon ended up fracturing the community (kind of like the fans said it would, IMO).

To be perfectly honest, the first Episode (Half Life 2)... scared the hell out of me. In that town at night when those things were climbing up the walls n' shit.. UGH.. freaked me out.

Just this last weekend, I was bored of the recent games released, and was looking over my steam account. I reloaded hl2, ep1 and ep2. I was curious how these would look with 2x5770 CF. These are still beautiful games, and I haven't stopped playing them. Hoping to finish the series again. What a coincidence.

It's hard to believe I was in my mid 20's when I played HL2,now that I'm in my 30's I feel so old but I'm still exited to play HL3.....
I hope I'm not in my 40's when the game is released.

Do not make it scary. Stupid (current) laws in Australia will refuse it classification (as being very scary for us Ozzies to handle) and we will not be able to play it here! /sarcasm
