Sup bitches? This is I-STAN-FOR-ARTIFACT here. Lately I've been seeing a lot of people comparing Half-Life and Artifact. Showing pictures of Half-Life and going "Oh, good," and then Artifact and going "Oh, bad." Well, comparing these two games of wildly different genres is definitely a valid thing that I will do: to show that Artifact is better than Half-Life. Let's crunch the numbers.
10. Better Characters
In Half-Life, you can only play as one dude: "Gordon Freeman," some nerdy scientist with a shitty beard. If you don't like him, tough shit, you're not allowed to play as anyone else. And the writing for Gordon Freeman is terrible, he doesn't even talk.
In Artifact, on the other hand, you control five different heroes at once. That's already a more diverse selection than Half-Life ever offers, but it gets even better. There are 48 different heroes you can play as. That's not even getting into the creeps, or the heroes that future expansions will add. So, to recap: one choice, forty-eight choices. This alone proves Artifact is at least forty-eight times better than Half-Life, and I'm only at the first reason!
Now, let's suppose you have terrible opinions and for some reason you like Gordon Freeman. Well Artifact's got you covered, senpai, because one of those heroes is Tinker. Tinker's a bearded scientist too, but unlike Gordon Freeman he can actually kick some ass. If Half-Life starred Tinker, he'd win that shit right away. Just lay down some March of the Machines improvements at Black Mesa, save one for Xen, and bam, every enemy in the game is dead. And he talks.
