My comments about HL being influential was on a personal level. Just so happens it could be objective influence on the industry as well.

The modern popular AAA games are mostly just enhancements of older original concepts, so they just don't stand out or suck me in.

Regarding the discussion of HL2. I think HL2's problem is it didn't really age well. At the time it came out, having vehicles and physics, etc. was pretty new and felt fresh. Now all that stuff is just standard. And from a general game play or narrative perspective I personally don't think HL2 was that good (it was a lot of just driving from one place to another). Also, while the mute protagonist worked in the era of HL1, by the time HL2 rolled around it had become dated, and now from a modern perspective it seems even more odd.
The episodes, however, were a lot better. Those truly were good in my book, even despite Gordon still not talking. The problem is Valve developed corporate ADD and weren't able to make any more SP games after EP2. So, even in terms of the episodes, you can't really rate them that high when they're essentially unfinished.

Yeah I'm a big RTS fan. I put Half Life because that was the first game that really scared me.
