It's time to face facts: Half-Life 2 is officially old—and to make things even more tragic, we still don't have a Half-Life 3. But even if Valve's acclaimed FPS series leaves us hanging forever, their 2004 sequel remains one of the most influential games of all time. On this episode of Retronauts, join Bob Mackey, Jeremy Parish, and guest Kevin VanOrd for a look into why Gordon Freeman's return turned so many heads. And if you'd like to fully recreate the Half-Life 2 experience, you can always run around smashing things with a crowbar while you wait for us to finish talking.
