Nice thread/graphic, jakUp.
I'm still looking forward to this game, but I ain't nearly as psyched as I was last year. I fully expect HL2 to be a great game, but as far as the Hype-O-Meter goes, I'm concentrating heavily on Halo 2.
Here's hoping it turns out to be what it should. I've got 3 major releases coming in the next 2 months; between Half-Life 2, Halo 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3, I'm going to have all my free time tied up.
