This is the greatest thing you’ll see all day

Seriously, after you watch this, just turn off your PC and go outside or something because nothing else will quite match up. It’s a Half-Life fan film (I know, I know, just hear me out) that recreates the introduction train-ride sequence to the original game. Sure there are dozens of fan-made Half-Life films, but this is one of the rare ones that just nails the atmosphere of the game.

It’s got the Black Mesa announcement voice-over, an actor that actually looks like Gordon Freeman, a glimpse of the G-Man and there’s even a nod to Portal 2 stuck in there so pay attention. I honestly cannot watch this without grinning ear-to-ear; it totally deserves two minutes of your time.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go and buy Half-Life: Source off Steam. Be back in a bit.
