My Top Ten Xbox Games #6: Half-Life 2

Half-Life 2 was a smash hit on the PC, however you needed a pretty good graphics card back in the day to run the darn thing good.

However the long awaited sequel did hit the Xbox, and although it didn’t become a RPG like Saga might have left fans thinking where the series might head, it was arguably the best inContinue reading “My Top Ten Xbox Games #10: Panzer Dragoon Orta”
