The Half-Life Series Mass Playthrough – Taking Place 15th May – 22nd May

News & Rumors Other

I’d imagine it’s been a fairly long time since most of us have thoroughly replayed the Half-Life games – and looking at Episode Three (or should I say Half-Life 3?) and the speed with which it’s moving along, it’s probably going to get even longer soon.

But what if instead of just sitting around, idly waiting for… you guessed it, Episode Three, we did something a bit more impressive? I mean, don’t get me wrong, sitting around is quite the enjoyable activity. But one of the most important components of the Half-Life franchise is its community. Imagine Half-Life without all of the websites, communities, and mods that have sprung up over the years. Quite challenging, isn’t it?

So then, why not show Valve that we are still somewhere around here, still waiting, and that we are willing to resort to some extreme measures to show that. And by that we don’t mean… making more fansites or… sitting around, listening to industrial music.

The Half-Life Series Mass Playthrough – Taking Place 15th May – 22nd May

Introducing the Half-Life Series Mass Playthrough for Episode Three. Starting Sunday, May 15th, and continuing through the following week, up to May 22nd, participants will replay all the Half-Life games they own on Steam. You can play any way you want, although logging in as many hours would be best. It is, in a way, a similar initiative to Surfrock’s “Message to Valve” forum petition from the Episode Two Steam Forums, which we also recommend that you check out.

One might argue that this is essentially pointless and that it won’t speed up Valve’s plans in any way. Perhaps, but does that matter? It’s a great opportunity to replay some of the greatest games ever created, and Valve is bound to notice, which is the entire point of the initiative itself.

So, why not? If you’ve got some free time during that period, then we see no reason why you shouldn’t participate. You can find the forum thread in question here, the Steam Group here, and the Facebook page here.
