Half Life inspired fan made movies

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had great time during the holiday season. I will always remember Christmas 2010 as the Half Life overdose season. The regulars of allround geek probably know that I have too much time in my hands these days. The past weeks I spend countless hours playing all the games from the Half Life universe. I do not know why. I think it started with Portal. Then it moved to Half Life 2. When I started playing again Half Life 2 I noticed that they had added achievements. Achievements were not available when I first played the game so I decided to play it again to do the achievements. 10 minutes into the game I got sucked in for good and I ended up finishing it,then playing Episode 1, Episode 2 , the original Half Life, Opposing Force and pretty much anything that was available. Half life 2 is the best game ever made, period. The gameplay is fantastic, the atmosphere and the scenario are excellent, and the immersion to the game world is unparalleled.

It is no wonder that these games have created such a movement. Many fans went to great lengths for their love and created their own movies inspired by the Half Life universe. Some of them are good, some of them are bad but all have one thing in common: love for the Half Life atmosphere, mythology and world elements. There are two major categories of these films: the live action movies and the ones created using the game's engine. In this post you will find a selection from both categories that I particularly liked.
