First thing I'm gonna play will be the "video options".

Um, Half-Life 2. I've been playing through Half-Life as it was released (no hi-res texture packs) at the moment. I'll be through that this weekend, and be ready and waiting for #2.

Juice is right... the video settings are the first thing that I'm going to be playing with, if you want to get literal about it.

1280x1024, 4x AA, 8x AF, all in-game options set to their absolute maximum (or 1600x1200 if I'm feeling particularly saucy).

First thing that gets the gravity gun in my hands = HL2.

As for the video settings. I will be over 60fps in 1280x960 with all eye candy on. No messing around needed.

HL:Source will be for when I'm done with HL2 and have had my fill of CS:Source. Of course by the time that happens, DoD:Source might be out.

damn straight! Same here!

As for HL1 source, you do know it's the same game with the same textures, the only change was to the water....it didnt get the over-haul cs did...it's up to the mod community to do that, valve pretty much just got it started, so playing HL1 would only benefit those who have never played it-not those who want to see updated graphics, because aside from the water, there are none.

I might have played HL:S first, but since the game has recieve practically no graphic or gameplay upgrades, I'm not very inclined to play it. I REALLY hope a mod group goes in and remakes all the models and textures, there's not much point to it being in the Source engine if the upgrade doesn't change anything. Are they even using the Blue Shift models in the game, or just the original HL1 models?

Oh, and adding a phys-gun to the game might be cool too. We can only hope...
