John's Mind (Half Life 2 Mind Series)

So, I am trying my hand at a mind series. It is a Half Life 2 series, at least mainly. However, the character is not Freeman, but an original character named John, suspiciously experiencing what is supposed to be Freeman's adventure.

 

I had actually uploaded the first episode a while back...but it was utter crap :P. So, after some time of fixing it up, I managed to get out a considerably better version. Not as good as I wanted, but still.

 

Anyway, Episode 1

Heh, I do think the first several minutes was mediocre and boring especially in comparison to other minds, but at least it is better than the crap version :P. the last 2 minutes or so kind of redeems it, though, I think.

Dangit, too many people are doing some sort of half life 2 mind series.

First it was corky064, then cptC00L, and then a million other terrible half life 2 mind series.

One or two was okay, this is just too many.

There are so many other games to do a mind series in. Why half life 2?

The style isn't intended to stay like this. I knew from pretty much the start that I couldn't do a comedy-oriented series. I'm gunning for a much more dramatic series. The first episode is, though, kinda stupid.

 

I really DID plan to do other games for mind series. The problem is that my plan was to work on two at once. I can hardly find time get videos of one mind series out on a Valve-Time-Esque schedule, much less two. So I had to focus on one game, and, well, Half-Life 2 won out.

Why doesn't anybody do mind series of HL2 mods? Like 1887, or Research and Development, Human Error I dunno just SOMETHING other than HL2. Save those games for Ross if he ever does them.

Haha, "Anders' Mind" in Human Error was in fact my other plan. Maybe it will see the light of day sooner or later.

I am slightly more satisfied with this one, though I still feel it could be better, but this only scratches the surface of what I have in mind for the future. Things should start getting more interesting from here on out, if everything goes according to plan.

I think it's kinda cool that Ross has inspired others to do this style of "acting while playing", including myself. Though I wouldn't exactly call most of these series Machinima since they involve no actual animation, only playing the game and making a voice for an otherwise silent protagonist.
