I am still in a little “shock and awe” of modern video gaming since being away from it for several years.
Even as I finally play through the Half Life episodes, I am regularly impressed with the visuals, storytelling, and overall immersed experience.
It really is tons of fun. 😀

Have you ever thought of video games this way before?
I certainly am.
