    No. HIGHLY doubt I will ever play that. Just made a new steam account and picked up the Valve catalogue for $20 and felt like playing HL and the expansions.

    I played it and thought the updated graphics improved the immersion. I had fun. I don't think I'd play the original again, unless I was feeling nostalgic. BM also sticks very closely to the original story. I didn't see much deviation iirc.

    The worst part about this is not the inevitable demise of my last living combatant, but rather waiting for the 30 or so orcs and hobgoblins to take their turns. There's more off-screen.

    Star Wars: Tie Fighter (1998 version) from GOG.

    Using dgVoodooCpl.exe to be able to use 3D hardware setting for anti-alias and some other settings. The mouse didn't work with dgVoodooCpl for me initially, but that was fixed by adding "-softwarecursor" to the short-cut.

    Had to download this to get the music to play during gameplay. Also downloaded this to be able to play in 60 FPS. Otherwise the game is locked to 35 FPS or something like that.

    Apparently, Black Mesa
    Completely inferior to the originals in all regards, bar graphical eye-candy. And it's a pity, because the devs have their hearts in the right place, but HL2 style gameplay doesn't blend well with HL1 set-ups.

    Try instead HL1 mods, start with Echoes.

    I've played a few hours of it a few times at various stages, although I want to wait for 100% project completion to finish it. It's a cool way to experience Half-Life. Since you have the Valve collection anyway, HL1 by itself is definitely worth playing, and it's a game that's worth playing twice so maybe consider BM for a second? If you actualy enjoy HL1 that is

    I do enjoy HL, this is not my first playthrough. I just no longer have access to my old steam account which is why I made a new one.

    The Last Sovereign. It has blobber combat but is best known for its C&C\storytelling.

    Inspired by the other people playing D2, I got Path of Diablo and it's really fucking good once you get used to the old-timey jank of D2 itself again.

    Normal Mode Baal cucked me out of decent loot but the first hour into Nightmare I get a low level unique that's actually useful for casters, WTF!

    Average Codexer opinion seems slightly negative but I really liked it. It's not as cinematic-y as Half-Life 2 but it's more than the original Half-Life. As far as the levels go it's kind of a re-imagining of Half-Life; some places are pretty close near 1:1 conversions with more detail, others are redesigned, some have been added, and others removed. Gunplay is better, IMO, weapons more realistic in the sense that they are pretty accurate and high-damage but have actual recoil that you need to control for. Bulletspam isn't as useful as single shots or short, controlled bursts, which I appreciate in shooters.
