Default help me like the Half-Life series..

OK you can stop throwing objects at me now..
..seriously that last 21" CRT monitor hurt!
..and no ganging up on me at a LAN!


I must have a problem (apart from the obvious ones).. I find the Half-Life series totally boring as discussed here..

I did however purchase HL2 recently for under $10 from Steam to test play Synergy (which I'm yet to do, on list). Now, I'll try HL2 ONE MORE TIME. I'll devote a full Saturday day to it again and see how it goes.
