Here's what I had for a card when I played it the first time:I played this game in 1998 using Voodoo 1 or was it a Voodoo 2 card. Was a great game at the time. Probably the greatest.
Anyway, I'm not gonna play it again, even if it comes with upgraded grahics. I feel this belongs to my past....
the Diamond Monster 3D, the first ever stand alone video card, I believe. Or at least it was the first "3D acceleration card" or whatever the hell... Voodoo 1 I think it qualifies as, but maybe not.
I think I got it for Quake 2 primarily. Or was it Quake 1?
take it from another old school gamer, CHANGE YOUR MIND about playing Black Mesa. I'm almost to the end of it now, will finish it tonight. It is incredibly good, and brings enough new stuff to the table to make it worth going through HL1 again.
One thing that helps for me is that it'd been ages since I played through HL1 all the way. This helps it feel fresh, but I am definitely remembering areas at a pleasant rate too. Remembering the basics of them... but not remembering so much as to make it boring or anything. I have a perfect mixture of bad memory, and them changing elements of it.
Just trust us, play this.
