The Forgotten Tricks of Half-Life

I wrote the other day about Half-Life: Opposing Forcean article which inspired me to return to the 1998 classic. I wrote about Half-Life at length back in 2019 where I talked about some of the joys and downright headscratching moments. My recent foray back to the Black Mesa complex took me to the Surface Tension chapter, it’s a strange one which has some highlights, lowlights and more of those moments where you wonder what Valve were doing.

Most years here at Reticule Towers we do some sort of review of the last year in games, or celebrate the games of the The Reticule years.

Here we have Ross talk about how his 2020 in games has shaped up.

The Reticule Presents – Our Games of the Year 2020 – Ross

The Reticule Presents – Our Games of the Year 2020 – Ross

We might have ticked over to a new year, but we still have thoughts to share on the games from 2020. We have talked about Our 2020 Year in Games, a joyful tale of our adventures in gaming through that topsy-turvy year. This time we’re taking a look at our Games of the Year. Some of us might have multiple Games of the Year, others might just have one, but there is one simple rule, the game must have been released in 2020. Here we have Ross sharing thoughts on his top games from 2020.

There are a few titles that deserve to be here. RökiDOOM: EternalWasteland 3. In the end, though, I decided to settle for just one—and if you told me in 2019 that it would have “Half-Life” in the title I’d have laughed you out of the room.

Here we have Chris sharing thoughts on his top games from 2020.

There are so many games that have come out this year which I haven’t played, yet I know would have been worthy of a spot in my Games of the Year list. I’m thinking of games as diverse as CyberPunk 2077 through to Hades or even Half-Life Alyx. As it is, I’ve still played a whole heap of games, and what follows are some highlights of 2020’s releases. There’s no particular order, but let us know what what you’re Games of the Year were.

Deus Ex: Invisible War – A Retrospective

Deus Ex: Invisible War – A Retrospective

“We plan to give people a sense of freedom and a prosperous world. In practical, historical terms, that’s about as good as it gets.”

There’s really nothing all that cool about cyberpunk visions of the future. They are dystopian nightmares of relentless technological progress at the expense of the human condition and the accumulation of vast wealth by a small, unaccountable few as billions live in squalor. It’s hell, and we can say that with even greater confidence than the genre’s pioneers: we’re living it now.

There’s no escaping it, Covid changed many things this year. The way we work, socialise, shop, eat and more was all thrown to the wind. But also for me one thing that drastically changed was the way I played games!
