    Default Best Mods for Half Life 2?

    I just received a copy of Half Life 2 from someone. One of the reasons I wanted this game was because of the amazing mods I've seen for this game. As soon as i get finished playing the actual game I'm gonna be trying out some of them that I already have in mind.

    But what are some of your favorites?

    p.s. if you could also leave a link to where i could download the mod, that'd be awesome. thanks!

    Two really excellent standalone campaigns are:
    Minerva - available directly on Steam, just search it, it should come up. Really well designed, excellent use of verticality. Free, of course.

    Mission Improbable - Really good (and funny) campaign by a couple of professional level designers. [url]http://missionimprobable.org/index.html[/url]

    - Insurgency
    - Weekday Warrior
    - Goldeneye Source
    - Source Forts (if people are playing still)
    - No More Room In Hell
    - The Stanley Parable
    - Portal Prelude
    - Fortress Forever
    - Garry's Mod

    Those are from the top of my head, cannot remember any others.

    I can't believe I forgot Black Mesa Source. You can get it from their website ([url]http://release.blackmesasource.com/[/url]) or wait for it to come out (for free) on Steam (it just got Greenlit). It's a total conversion mod of the original Half Life into the Source engine. Finished except for the Xen bit, I think.

    i thought Black Mesa was its own game. so is it free then?

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I've had my eye on this one for a while and it'll probably be the 1st one i try. just wondering if anyone else has tried it out or heard anything good/bad about it?

    Eternal Silence [url]http://www.moddb.com/mods/eternal-silence[/url]

    The only thing i don't like is that it appears to be a multiplayer mod, hoping it has single player, as that's more of what i'm interested in.
    I'm really into space games/sims and if any of you guys know of anything else like this, please let me know. thanks

    Yes, Black Mesa Source is free. Since it was a mod team and they're not paying for the engine license, they can't charge for it. Even though it's pretty much professional quality.

    It is a standalone game though, you don't install the mod through HL2, you install it like any other program.

    The A.I is such shit and the jumping is so poor it ruins the platforming.

    Both much better in HL.
