    and Quake 2 wasn't much better, but this is the nature of the beast, as it is an ending to, (a good game as you probably wouldn't have played it to the end if not), and as such the end will usually be disappointing.

    Half-life was disapponiting, I thought TR2 was ok and Unreal, but how can you make an "ending" much better if you need to leave it open for a part, two, three, four or whatever depending on sales of the one you have played?

    I liked the ending of Wing Commander: Prophecy.

    The best ending to a game I would have to say is probably Diablo 2. The worst has got to be Quake 2.

    The original Tomb Raider has a great ending: When you have to escape from within the collapsing pyramid on this small island after beating the boss, ground is shaking, rocks are dropping, and after having escaped, the whole thing explodes.

    Why didn't you guys like the ending to Hald-Life? I mean, it's not the BEST ending, but ir was OK. Definitely not the worst ending.

    I dunno, The best storyline, and ending would have to be Scarcraft +Brood War.
    I mean, it is pretty obvious, but the storyline is really good. THe worst Ending has to be Quake2.

    For me, I didn't really enjoy the whole alien planet section towards the end. It took me hours to do the platform jumping while permanently being attacked. That was horrible!

    Yeah I made a single key binding for that "hop skip & jump" stuff, much easier

    I thought the Zen levels were ok especially the Gonarch!

    WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE TELL ME THAT BEFORE?
    How's the binding exactly done? Three keys: Run+Crouch+Jump (Shift+C+Space)?

    I was quite into HL and used to help out sending people this and other stuff on a HL site if they were stuck with it.

    Having Trouble With The Longjump?

    To get the long jump working on one key you need a HEV suit and a jump battery

    /give(S)item_longjump(E) to get long jump battery

    Type this into the console and make sure there are no mistakes:-

    alias(S)+lj(S)"+forward;+duck;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;+jump"(E)
    alias(S)-lj(S)"-jump;-duck;-forward"(E)
    bind(S)(K)(S)"+lj"(E)

    (K) is any key you want, make sure a " appears in the console, I have to use the @ key to get a quote to appear. If it says command not recognised you can use the arrow keys to go back and correct. Also make sure you use the plus & minus on the key pad not the ones under the F9 & F10 keys or it won't work. Once you have done this your chosen key will do it all, run-crouch-jump but remember to be back from the edge far enough or you will fall off before it gets to the jump command.

    Commands in Italics (k)
    Keyboard inputs in bold (S)=space (E)=enter

    Yeah Half-Life's a great game but them levels in xen were a bit boring, anyone else agree, 2 much running round and jumping for me, the best bits were when u had 2 face the soldiers 4 the first time, especially on hard difficulty!
