Half-Life 2 On Super-Low Settings Looks Like Minecraft

LowSpecGamer, who we’ve previously seen destroying games like The Witcher 3, has done something very special to Half-Life 2, taking what it still a fairly decent-looking shooter and turning it into something that looks it came out of a 12-hour game jam.


He’s gone well beyond just moving every setting to low, of course, digging into the game’s files to change a load of values that force low-res polygons and disable nearly all the game’s effects.


I...really like it.
