Trolling Gamescom With "Half-Life: 3"

By Brian Ashcraft on at

A “Half-Life: 3" poster has been spotted at Gamescom. But don’t get excited just yet! This isn’t for Valve’s long overdue sequel. It’s for some world-class trolling.

Spotted by Eurogamer, the poster doesn’t actually read “Half-Life 3,” but rather, “Half-Life: 3" and under that in smaller text “Editors Who Played It Back Then.” Not exactly A+ wordplay, but nonetheless a masterful troll.

At the bottom of the poster, there are the logos of German sites Giga Games and Spieletipps.
