        They Hunger is one of the oldest BIG Total Conversion mods for HL1. It was also created by THE PC Gamer magazine. It's mostly cheezy oldschool spooky-a-thon, essentially a Halloween piece.

        i played cry of fear, is afraid of monsters good, since it was the game made before cry of fear i assumed that it was barebones.

        >is afraid of monsters good,
        It's all around more scary, more terrorizing and nightmarish than CoF.
        It's obviously more HL1-like gameplay wise, but it is the game where CoF got most of its ideas. Same author, btw.

        I recommend the later Director's Cut version over the 2005 original.

      Just to provide the opposite opinion, I wouldn't recommend Afraid of Monsters, especially if you've played Cry of Fear. The biggest downfall for me that I cannot forgive is that the game is pitch black all the time, but it still uses the stock HL1 flash light. It's fucking terrible and it makes the game unplayable for me. I've tried on several occasions and can never make it out of the hospital because I get sick and tired of having to stare at the floor like I'm speedrunning Goldeneye.

      is brutal half life good? i don't see a point to the mod, unlike doom that for some really needed a modern coat of paint, that radically chances the gameplay, in the case of half life i don't see what would need to change. More guns are not needed, and the ones that are in the game sound good and are really useful, more gore doesn't seem necessary either, and if you are gonna put it in, then it would be nice if it was quake 2 style of gore, oh and damage shown in the enemies body.

          figured as much, such a shame, half life's mood is very important to the overall story, so one most be very careful with it. We aren't playing rambo here.

        All it does is adding some better gun animations, akimbo mode and more detailed gore on enemies.
        The core gamepaly remains the same but feels much better due to much improved feedback.

        It's basically a "best of" kind of mod, instead of adapting some story it adapts like half of them into its own original one.

        There's supposedly a remastered version, can't say if it is any good. I played an older one.

      wow, thanks for the thougth out suggestions anon. I love atmospheric mods, half life has the comfiest of atmospheres to me, with his graphics, tone and setting really blending into something special, so a mod of this game can only be really good in this department. Hazardous course is like the course in the base game but expanded and harder? like, more parkour and less combat, i'm down for it

      • 2 months ago

        parkour is right, there are some sections designed to be trialed and error'd because they are so overtly ridiculously difficult, but the design and many secret levels abroad are a good hook to keep going. enjoy!
