So I have an idea for a contest. You know how Half Life 2 takes place in Europe?
Well, let’s say, theoretically, that the **Resonance Cascade **(The Black Mesa Incident) occured around, oh, let’s say 2013. So Half Life 2 takes place 20 years after that.
Well, what is America (Or any other modern place) like now? We’re high tech, we’re up to date, and we’re on our way to what we hope is a successful future. Therefore, our technology should be a little better by 2013. So I ask, and here’s the Contest theme, How would the Resonance Cascade affect life in a modern area? IE, Today’s Suburbs, Cities, public monuments & things,and even rural areas like Bike Paths, Public Railways, Subways & Highways.
And how would the Combine ration the citizens in smaller cities and towns?
So I guess someone could base a contest on that whole idea if they’d like. I think it’s a neat idea, seeing as how people make RP maps all the time, but they’re always new and modern, and if they’re not new and modern, then they’re just abandoned or very worn out buildings. What if we were to say that all our modern society’s achievements were stuck on the Combine’s “That’s just super but I don’t care” refrigerator like grade school macaroni art.
Also, I made a banner. (Updated a while after posting, I spelled something wrong.)
Anyway, tell me what you think.
