“A Red Letter Day”. What is it, you ask? Let’s just say it is an event organized to show Valve that Half-Life 2 is not forgotten.
The event is scheduled for 4th February, at 11:00AM – 11:30AM PDT, 30,000 gamers will be playing Half-Life 2 in order to show their support for the game. A steam group, calling themselves “A Call for Communication”, has organized this particular event.
Why are we doing this? It will be a fun way to rally together, put Half-Life back in the spotlight and draw more people to our cause. We are not asking or demanding for anything; it will simply be a huge group of Half-Life fans playing one of the best games ever made. Who knows, maybe Half-Life 2 will even reach the top ten games played for that day.
Not only will this event cause Half-Life 2 to venture into the list of top ten games played today, but it will show Valve how much people love this franchise, and how they desperately want a Half-Life 3. Basically, the group is indirectly asking Valve to get on with HL 3 and bring joy to the hearts of so many gamers.
Valve does listen to it’s fanbase, and this may actually work. And even if it doesn’t, why would you object to playing an excellent game? Sure, this is a single player game. But it’s one hell of a single player game.
So, will you be participating in this event? because I know I will.
