Have you read the reviews of Half-Life 2? I am so excited about it I cannot hold myself in my chair anymore. Most magazines have already claimed it being possibly the greatest of all time, not to mention PC Gamer awarding it a 98%. Near perfect. Not saying that I always agree with magazine reviews, but when a game scores that high, it has to be good. Trust me, PC Gamer and all the other magazines have a reputation to keep. If their reviews aren't accurate, or if they hand out good scores, they will lose customers. The magazine is to keep you from buying games you won't like, and buy games you will like. If they fail at that, they lose readers.

I know Half-Life 2 will be good, and I can't wait.
I have also found PCGamer reviews to be very accurate.

I dunno about their accuracy...they gave Doom 3, 94%. While Doom 3 is a fine game, it's no 94%. Maybe 80-85%. I've learned to ignore reviews, their more hype helping to sell the product than anything else.

Albeit HL2 will surely be a great game, maybe even "the greatest game ever" but that term is used too often for me these days. I remember when Halo came out on Xbox and was labeled that. And to me, Halo isn't even better than Doom 3, little-lone "the greatest game ever". Heck, some people even used that term for Far Cry, UT2K4, and then recently on Doom 3. And i'm sure it will be over-used in the future as well, with titles like S.t.a.l.k.e.r and Quake 4 coming. It seems whenever a graphically impressive game with decent physics makes it's way to the market, it's labeled "greatest game ever". The term is overkill. We all know Final Fantasy 7 is, was and always will be the greatest game EVER. =)~

Final Fantasy 7 and complete series is the biggest crap i ever saw. No offense, but the game is designed for 5 years old kid to be calm till his mom comes back from the shoping...give me a break....

Yeah I agree with you there. FF7 is the one game in the series that I liked a lot. And so did many others. I am sure there are people on this forum that are older than 5 that liked FF7.

FF3 and FF7 were brilliant, I personally don't feel they were designed for 5 year olds. I think there's just a bias against a good ol' fashion console rpg. =P
