Steam & Half-Life
« on: October 09, 2014, 08:03:44 pm »
I've just got around to installing Steam.  I'm not really into games but I think that good old "Half-Life" is a must on any platform.  It maybe old school but its stood the test of time really well ;)!!

Yeah, it runs beautifully.  I haven't got a fancy graphics card.  I just have the Intel integrated chip set - nothing special.

Cool, I may look into buying half life on Steam then .. been ages since I played it, and yeah it's right up there with DOOM/Quake, Wolfenstein,, Duke Nukem, and Unreal
