I remember getting a seemingly innocuous copy of PCZone in the post and wetting myself when I saw the HL2 logo on the front cover. Then taking a day off work on release day and playing ALL day.
But I think the most important thing that Half Life did for the gaming community was to bring modding to the forefront of people's minds. Sure, people had been modding games pretty much since day one, but Counter Strike showed you could make money from it and TF, Day of Defeat and a dozen others (They Hunger!) showed that the modding community can extend a games life by years.
