Ah, the brothers face off. The world-builder and it's dark twin.

I'm actually going to go for [m]Anomalous Materials[/m], just because I like messing with stuff, rather than having stuff mess with me.

I'm also rather partial to stuffing with mess and having mess stuff with me, but that's a conversation for another day.

Don't even get me started on messing stuff with have, because that's just crazy talk!

Oh god I think this is the hardest decision we've had to make this entire tournament.

I think I have to go for Unforseen Consequences, because it takes the great level design of Anomalous Materials, as well as the environment that level design represents, and turns it on it's head. I'm a big fan of how the game makes you familiar with the Sector C labs and then has you go through a ruined section of it - it was also great seeing that happen to the trainstation in City 17, and basically every location you visit in Neil Manke's HL mods.

Also, UC is full of iconic setpieces - Waking up in the ruined AMS chamber, the entirely optional falling scientist, the first Vortigaunt (who is deemed important enough by Valve to be referenced in Ep2's G-man Heart-to-heart!), the Akira-inspired funicular ride, the giant canal, the box smashing room...

Exploring Anomalous Materials was very exciting when I played Half-Life for the first time back in 1999.

Unforeseen Consequences edges it out 6-4! I'm sure it's an honor just to be nominated...

Surface Tension vs. Unforeseen Consequences! Go ahead and put this final nail in.

It's almost unfair to compare other chapters to easily the longest chapter in the game, but the gargantuan Surface Tension is too dam good and as a consequence gets my vote.

Surface Tension, we all knew it was coming. A worthy winner though.

Surface Consequences

Unforeseen Tension

(They both sound like the kind of projects you'd see on MODDB)

Anyway yeah, [m]Surface Tension[/m] wins because it does. See previous posts for more details. Interesting to see Unforseen Consequences taking second place though. Well played Chapter 2.
