Agree on that. Although everyone is missing, at least, two of them.

Also, added Lost Coast, it's not canon, but it's still cool to play it.

Maybe Half-Life first, then try Opposing Force and finally Blue Shift. You can shift between these. Team Fortress Classic isn't so canon, I think, so you can play that when you want.

TFC isn't part of the Half-Life story, and it's multiplayer only.

That is why I said it isn't canon.

You said "It isn't so canon", with the "so" there someone may get confused and think it's like Lost Coast, which takes place in the HL universe, but isn't canon.

I wasn't all sure, but I didn't think Team Fortress Classic had with Half-Life to do..

No, I doesn't have anything to do with the Half-Life story. Anyway, I was just pointing that out.

technically you cant play the games in chronological order. they chronology of each game overlaps.

ive never really understood the obsession with playing things or watching things in chronological order. good storytelling is always independent of chronology. the way things are revealed in the Half Life games, it just makes more sense to play them in the order they are released:

Half Life
Opposing Force
Blue Shift

i dont want to give any spoilers but things will make more sense if you play them in that order. also, remember Half Life is the story. the other two just supplement it.

if a story takes place "out of order" there is normally a reason for it. it normally hurts the story and the impact of certain events to reorder the story into chronological order. some of the best storys of all time use nonlinear storytelling. i shudder to think of what some people in this topic would do those particular works.

I'd play Blue Shift before Opposing Force, as OF is more exciting than BS, so Blue Shift might come off as an anticlimax.
