Half the time it takes for a radioactive substance to decay.
Extreamly popular game, developed by the company VALVe. Yeah, that's how you spell it. With those capitals and that lower-case e.
The game is extreamly popular, boasting an impressive AI and great graphics (for its time). The mod community made that even better, with one of its best mods, Counter-Strike, being able to go commercial and make a profit. This, in turn, started getting people to think of the OTHER great mods in the mod community, namely Sven Coop, Day of Defeat, and The Specialist are all mods that come to mind.
Damn, this game is huge! I've been playing this since 1998, and it's still fun! Thanks mod community, and thanks VALVe!

Released on October 31, 1998, Half-Life is a first-person shooter for the PC. It is widely considered as one of the greatest shooters ever made due to its expansive world, story, and delivery of gameplay. The game includes no cut-scenes or dialogue text, helping you engross in the game as if you were really in it. Almost all shooters of today take something from Half-Life, Halo as a good example. Even 8 years after its release, people still play and create MODs for it, Counter-Strike being the most popular. It has had a long awaited sequel released in 2004.
The historical importance of the game in video gaming will remain as long as shooters exist. It was the first FPS to not have levels or stages and the first to not introduce you with a weapon at the start (you begin on a tram on your way to work-- an ordinary day gone wrong to say the least). Gamespy awarded Half-Life with the second best game ever made, and PC gamer declared it as the best PC game as of 1999.
"Half-Life is the closest thing to a revolutionary step the genre has ever taken. -Gamespot"
"Nothing half-assed about it--this has to be the finest shooter ever crafted. -IGN.com"
"Everything about Half-Life smacks of quality: the storyline, the gameplay, the graphics, the sound effects and last, but not least, the obvious level of committment Sierra and Valve have invested in it. Half-Life is, without doubt, the best PC game I have ever played. Ever. -Yahoo! Games"
