If you loved Half-Life series and worshiped Minecraft, this sandbox game is definitively for you. The game fist became available in 2006 for Microsoft Windows with Valve’s legal release of the game. However, this was not the first time game appeared on the gaming market. Creator of this incredible game mod is Garry Newman, who firstly made it as a Half-Life 2 mod. After the game proved to be popular Valve offered to buy it from Garry. At first, Garry declined the offer, but after reconsidering the proposal agreed to the terms and sold the game to Valve.
Fun to Play.
The game is surprisingly interesting, given that it doesn’t promise much at first. You can find it on Steam for around ten bucks, or you can get it for free at gmod download link, by completing a quick survey. The game will contain original content as well as some additional models and texture packs. You will be able to add more models and items from various games. Mass Effect, Hallo, Half-Life 2, Star Wars, Skyrim as well as models from other games will be available at your disposal.
Create your Own Scenario.
The best thing about GMod is that you can record any session that you’ve made. This gives you freedom to experiment with different models, items and object to create a unique scenario and modify every aspect of it. For example, you can take Shepard from Mass Effect series and add some NPC’s from Skyrim to reconstruct imaginary events directed by your game-influenced imagination. This makes things rather interesting, where possibilities become infinite. Alternatively to making building and objects by combining elements from different games, you can download building packs that provide already built structures. These structures, like 10 feet high watch towers or a bridge make from stacked Skyrim giants, are at your disposal ready to be placed any time on the map. So you can have fun by spawning hundreds of NPC’s in one place that will fight each other thus creating controlled chaos, of construct a community of different game models that focuses on compassion and sharing.
Create your own game.
You can also play the role of game developer with GMod. You can actually create a complete level based on Source engine with Half-Life 2 texture pack. Download the needed elements and items and you might as well create an alternative ending level of your favorite game. Share your discoveries and game sessions with other players or combine your work to create something amazing. If you ever wondered what a town full of Amish G-Men that sustained the community by growing those plant-like tentacles form Half-Life and selling them as pets would look like, now you have a chance to make such atrocities.
Whether you like Minecraft and similar games or despise their creators as well as the game title itself, you should definitely try Garry’s mod and see for yourself why everyone is talking about this game since 2006.
