The landmark first-person shooter from Valve was originally released in 1998 for the PC. It has since been ported to the PS2, but never to the PC’s brother, Mac.
That is set to change, with the game being available through Valve’s Steam network. “Valve has not made an official announcement, but Polygon reports that the game is available and runs without hiccup,” Makuch writes.
The game is currently priced at $9.99, a standard for older games.
“Half-Life”, as mentioned, was a landmark in not only first-person shooters, but in gaming; it has also sold millions of copies world-wide. It is frequently ranked as one of the best games of all time, as is its sequel, “Half-Life 2”. Its sequel, and all subsequent “Half-Life” episodes, were released for Mac.
The series stars Gordon Freeman, a worker at the Black Mesa research facility where an accident occurs that releases mutant creatures throughout the facility and changes the course of mankind forever.
