9. Half-Life - PlayStation 2
Half-Life was ported to the PS2 by Gearbox Software and released at the end of 2001. This port had a significant overhaul in terms of both character models, weapons, and more advanced and extended levels and general map geometry. Also added in is a head-to-head play and a co-op expansion called Half-Life: Decay that allowed players to play as the two female scientists Dr. Cross and Dr. Green at Black Mesa. Another interesting feature allowed players to use a USB mouse and keyboard, a feature unmatched on the platform.

A port for Sega Dreamcast was completed, but never commercially released.

Taking place in and around the fictional City 17, Half-Life 2 follows the adventures of scientist Gordon Freeman. Dr. Freeman is thrust into a dystopian environment in which the aftermath of the Black Mesa Incident has come to bear fully upon human society. Freeman is forced to fight against increasingly unfavorable odds in order to survive. In his struggle, he is joined by various allies, including former Black Mesa colleagues, oppressed citizens of City 17, and the Vortigaunts.

13. Half-Life: Source - PC Games
Included with the Collector's Edition and Game of the Year editions of Half-Life 2, as well as a stand-alone Steam install, Half-Life: Source is a remake of the original title with the new and improved Source engine.

It was heavily criticized because the graphics were still based on the same original textures (not even the improved Blue Shift textures were used) resulting in the game looking closer to the original than to Half-Life 2. A fan-made project is in the works for a real Half-Life remake (see Black Mesa)

17. Half-Life 2 - Xbox
Although a faithful port of Half-Life 2, the Xbox version suffers from blurry low-rez textures, choppy frame rates, and a very forgiving auto-lock targeting system. Best enjoyed on a PC.

Released on October 10th, 2007, either as a stand-alone Steam install or part of 'The Orange Box' release, it continues Valve's method of orienting each episode around a particular theme or set of technologies; Episode Two focuses on expansive environments, travel and less linear play.

Following the closing events of Episode One, it sees Gordon Freeman and the series' other major players moving away from City 17 to the surrounding countryside.

23. Portal - PC Games
Portal was first made available as a stand-alone download from Steam, or bundled with 'The Orange Box'.

24. The Orange Box - PC Games
Released in October 2007, The Orange Box includes the new Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2, and Portal, as well as 2004's Half-Life 2 and 2006's Half-Life 2: Episode One, which is handy if you aren't up to speed with what Gordon Freeman's been doing over the past few years. And if you already own those, you can transfer the ownership of the older titles to your friends.

25. The Orange Box - Xbox 360
In the Orange Box, you get Half-Life 2, HL2: Episode One, HL2: Episode Two, Portal, and the online Team Fortress 2. Five great unique games all in one box. It's easy to see why this is such a huge hit.

26. The Orange Box - PlayStation 3
Though the content is as good as on the Xbox 360, the PS3 version of The Orange Box has noticeable problem with inexplicable frame rate issues that see to happen randomly, whether there's nothing on the screen or in the middle of a big battle.

In addition, the PS3's loading times are longer than the Xbox 360's, and they're frequent enough to be noticeable.

30. Black Mesa - PC Games
This fan-made project, still unreleased, is a complete conversion of the original Half-Life but with Half-Life 2 high resolution textures and physics. Valve's previous attempt at a remake (Half-Life: Source) was not well received because of it still used the original textures, but Black Mesa is getting all its levels re-built from scratch.

31. Half-Life 2: Episode Three - PC Games
It is planned as the last episode in the currently planned story arc, although not necessarily the end of the Half-Life franchise. According to Valve, plot details have not been finalized as of February 2008, and the game is also not expected to be released for some time.

During a February 2008 interview, David Speyrer, chief developer of Episode Two, explained the reasons behind the delay: "There are always things we want to do that we can't because of the constraints of either the story or the arc we've laid out for the gameplay - or just time. So we shelve them and carry on. Ideas fly around here quite a bit, so we have this huge laundry list of things to try for the next thing..."


 

Every Half-Life series title and compilation that added new content, mods, and more story to the Half-Life universe. All North American releases are included, but only the most common EU/UK/PAL versions are.

I've also left out Half-Life: Counter-Strike and Team Fortress series. Even though they are usually bundled with Half-Life editions, neither of them are from the true Half-Life universe.
