I am restarting this nomination because the last one went on for too long; it was on hold while Half-Life 2 was at FAR (which it passed), and there was a dispute regarding this topic's name. Let's start this from scratch, shall we? Gary King (talk) 19:08, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Support-ish as long as a better name is found. Nergaal (talk) 19:21, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Support under any reasonable name. (Fossil fuel for spark-plug-containing internal combustion engines is not a reasonable name for Gasoline, but short of that I should be fine with it.) Zginder 2008-10-15T19:36Z (UTC)
    • Comment The name of this nomination that is being voted on is "Half-Life 2 and episodes." Rreagan007 (talk) 20:04, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Support under this name or "Half-Life 2 episodes", but not under "Half-Life 2 titles" or "Half-Life 2 episodes". Beyond that, open to further suggestions - rst20xx (talk) 23:42, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Additional comment - as per Rreagan007's penultimate comment on the previous nomination, I would prefer to see a general "Half-Life 2 titles" topic, that also includes Half-Life 2: Lost Coast and Half-Life 2: Survivor. However, I feel that this just about passes the "does not overly overlap" and cherrypicking rules as is, without them - rst20xx (talk) 23:47, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
  • I still believe it would be more prudent to work towards a full Half-Life series topic (not focusing exclusively on HL2 titles, but including HL1, its expansions and the series article), but as long as that can be addressed through supplemental nominations later, I guess I can support. -- Sabre (talk) 11:17, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose per overlap recommendation at WP:FT?. All articles are already listed as part of the Orange Box. Here I am obviously discounting Episode 3 as it is only a Peer Reviewed stub. Rambo's Revenge (talk) 14:24, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I've had a lot of time to think about this one, and the more I think about it the less I like it. I'm sure everyone here would agree that it would be much better if this could be a larger "Half-Life 2" or even "Half-Life" topic. Unfortunately, those topics aren't ready yet. If it weren't for the large degree of overlap with The Orange Box topic I probably would have supported anyway, but the overlap pushes me over the edge to oppose. Sorry guys. Rreagan007 (talk) 14:57, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose I once thought that while there was a lot of overlap orange box was a totally different ball game, but with the only new article being an audited article, I see no reason to promote until episode three is released or more artilces are added. Sorry. Zginder 2008-10-16T15:06Z (UTC)

I'd be much more in favour of this. You may also need to add/discuss if Half-Life 2: Deathmatch should be split back out. Rambo's Revenge (talk) 10:13, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
It would definitely make it a much better topic and I think I would most likely support that. Rreagan007 (talk) 14:39, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
  • I supported this, and would also support that - rst20xx (talk) 00:23, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
    To clarify, I would support this when either three is promoted or other artilces that would not create a gap are added. Zginder 2008-10-18T01:07Z (UTC)
  • Nomination withdrawn following a request by the nominator - rst20xx (talk) 01:18, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
