I'm with you mostly. I like Half Life 2, but the original game is just better
. My Uncle gave me a copy when I was about 12 for Christmas and it's a game that I fire up and really try to perfect, even now. It's the intensity of it that gets to me - no video sequences, very little time in scripted motion. It's just pure first-person and I love that.
One of the other games I still play from being very young (3!) is Prince of Persia. I've never managed to get beyond level 7 and it still drives me insane 19 years later.
