Half-Life is a first-person shooter developed by Valve and published by Sierra Studios in 1998. The game was Valve's debut product and the first game in the Half-Life series. Players assume the role of a scientist named Gordon Freeman, who must find his way out of the Black Mesa facility after an experiment gone wrong.
Half-Life garnered critical acclaim upon its release, with praise for its seamless narrative. The game was followed up by two expansion packs developed by Gearbox, and a sequel titled Half-Life 2 in 2004. A fan-made remake called Black Mesa was released in 2020.
Both Vinny and Joel streamed the game multiple times. One of Vinny's most notorious streams involved his playthrough of Crack-Life, an infamous politically incorrect joke mod for Half-Life. He remarked that it was his worst stream he's done.
