I can't convince everyone here , but I know one thing :
We can only lose our hope when Valve say that there won't be any more HL game.
And Valve didn't do that so there is hope.
That's one of the best things I can say.
They don't need to say we won't release a game that has many Hypes for it ?! Are you kidding ?!
If they don't want to release HL3 , give the permission to another studio. Can't they ? Or they shouldn't make such a statement ?!
So if you doubt , then you can't say never (also you mention the...
Games are different with softwares and Operating Systems. OS/2 was an old OS and now it is abandoned and Windows is replaced.
But HL is going to have a replacement ?!
Valve won't release another game and mention that it's the replacement of HL. Maybe call the new game just Half-Life , but...

And before , they released 2 Wolfenstein games !
12 years passed and...
You know , a new game has to have new things to show. for example , HL2 added some more weapons and puzzles to HL1. But yeah , the end is important.
1. Yeah , HL2 is now a game that doesn't match with the today's game standards (it needs more motion , aiming , etc).
2. As long as i remember...
Let me start by reminding the history of half-life...
Half-Life 1 was Released in 1998 as a very successful game of all the time , Expansion Packs completed the story and 6 years later the sequel Half-Life 2 was released. Also the episodes which completed the story of 20 years after the Black...
Hi all ,
If you were a member of valve development team , what would you like the HL3 to be ?
Storyline , Gameplay , etc
For me i would like to have Dr. Breens alive who confronts Gordon Freeman one more time.

I agree that Ravenholm has no use at all , but it's fun to fight with endless zombies & headcrabs in a city !
And this time you will be able to visit the whole city...
Returning to black mesa has no use at all , but it's fun to fight with the old enemies using your new weapons...
And this time...
