> join random game called ''noob'' since I've never played this before.

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch. Physics can be really silly, but there are great communities- both veteran and new, various aspects to open source benefits, and much fun to be had.

12 years later, and this game is still alive.

It's the multiplayer DM version of HL2, with every HL2 weapon + the CP stunstick. This game is one of the few Valve multiplayer games without a toxic playerbase.

-Quick Review-
Half-Life 2: Deathmatch is basically Half-Life 2 multiplayer, with custom made maps in Source SDK and a few members within the community still playing.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: Now, this is the story all about how. Atratzu life got flipped-turned upside down. And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there. I'll tell you how I became a red splat on the side of the wall.

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch suddenly appeared in my steam library, I believe it was recently added to a bundle that I've purchased (specifically, with my past purchase of Half-Life 2: Episode One). Half-Life 2: Deathmatch used to be a very large FPS community which started after the huge success of the Half-Life 2 series. But because Half-Life 2 is only single player, the community asked for a multiplayer competitive game, and valve delivered.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=701298322

Gameplay: Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, controls EXACTLY like Half-Life 2. Which honestly I always thought I would be alright at a Half-Life multiplayer FPS, but it's been a long time since I played through all the Half-Life 2 games, so my skills were quite rusty.
You have the same weapons, but the maps/servers are customized. I joined and played a Free for all, and a team death match. There is still several active people playing the game, at the end of one game people were actually congratulating the person who got first!
I'm not sure if it's because so few play the game that they're all a tighter knit group, or I just found the one small patch in space time where people are still friendly, but it was nice to actually play a few rounds with some people who aren't screaming little kids swearing and speaking profanities they cannot comprehend.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=701298307

Conclusion: To be completely honest, I haven't been on a FPS craze for a long time, the game has aged the same way as Half-Life 2. If you ever wanted to play a multiplayer FPS of Half-Life 2 there are plenty of servers, many are empty, you could even figure out the technical know-how to set up your own server and own maps.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=701298347

I actually probably have used source SDK more then Half-Life 2: Death Match. It's a shame to see a community shrink so much, but props to those of you who keep playing one of your favorite games, don't change and keep on shooting!

What can I possibly say that hasn't been said abouth HL2: Deathmatch? It's all good, classic, old-style shoot-everything arena style fun. Though I must say it does tend to drag after about an hour or so playing straight.

If you're gonna get this game, make sure you either find a good server or some friends to play it with because sadly this little gem probably ha slittle online life left. Whenever I get on, more than half the servers have nobody on them and another 1/3rd is way too customized or geared towards veteran players.

Provided you can get some people to play with, this game is awesome. Throwing toilets at your friend's heads at 80 miles an hour has never been so fun. It's cheap and definitely worth the price- get it of you have some minor cash lying around, during a neat sale or just getting the whole damn Valve pack!
