The day before yesterday I got Half Life 2 (HL2) and installed it in the afternoon. Although Steam is kind of embarassing it worked fine. Then, still being in the office, I started to play it. And I have to say it is absolutely amazing, stunning, and whatnot. In the evening I continued to play until 2AM yesterday. I do not yet know how to make screenshots ingame, but I definitely have to work that out. There was one scene/incident in a concrete water-reservoir, diving in the water, a corpse of a killed combine-policeman floating above me, and the bubble trails of the projectiles fired at me by his colleague from above, around me. It definitely was the most immersive moment in a computergame I ever experienced—pun intended. As soon as I know how to take screenshots I will try to restage that scene and then will try to provide an atmospheric picture.
