WHAT! Talking about award categories already? Yes, because unlike last year, I want to have a really well-organized build-up, event and vote.

Below are the planned categories, but I am open to suggestions for new categories. The same goes for other suggestions related to the awards, please don’t be shy, if you have an idea, comment or suggestion, just post it in the comments and I promise to seriously consider it.

– The Headcrab Award: Best GoldSource Release of the Year
– The Hunter Award: Best Source Release of the Year
– The Zombie Award: Scariest Moment
– The Alyx Award: Best Atmospheric Scene

UPDATED:
– The Magnusson Award: Best Puzzle
– The Kleiner Award: Most Interesting Experimental Idea

I will not finalize the categories or other aspects of the awards until the end of February.

Poll Question 306 – What’s the longest break you have had from playing HL games and mods since you first started?

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Andrew just posted a review for a Half-Life 2 map and mentioned he hadn’t played HL2 in over a year and I just couldn’t imagine not playing for more than a few weeks and that’s when I am on holiday and away from my PC.

Of course, I am passionate or obsessed, depending on your point of view, but I feel most of my readers are as addicted as I am, if not more.

This seemed an interesting question and I considered expanding it to ALL games and mods but I’m more interested in just your HL habits.
