Half Life is a game that shocked the gaming industry back in 1998. It might've not been the first of its kind, but it was certainly one of the best. The graphics, inferior compared to today's photorealistic games, were still amazing when it came out.
(( Do not read this section as it contains major plot details.))
You play as Doctor Gordon Freeman, a scientist working for the mysterious Black Mesa corporation. After discovering an alien planet known as Xen, several experiments are conducted to bring back specimens from this new world. As you come to work one day, everything is normal- except for a test involving a teleportation to Xen, and a suspicious man in a suit warning about unforseen consequences. The team ignores this, and it would cost them nearly everything. The experiment fails, and all hell breaks loose as Xen creatures teleport into the Black Mesa facility, killing anyone and anything. You wake up, during the aftermath of this event. Determined to escape, you fight your way through the facility, all the way to Xen. To find out the rest, you have to play the game.
((Spoilers end here.))
I incredibly recommend this game to any gamer there is.
