    The other half Bought Half Life2 last night at Toys R Us for me including the free speakers! for £29.99. :clap:
    Unfortunately I can't play it untill christmas.
    I don't play many games so what I want to know is what others are using to control the game.
    I only have a 2 button wheel mouse at the moment but would like to know what other items I should add to my christmas list.

    Some players use joysticks , tracker balls etc.

    ..... but TBH, you don't need anything fancy, it works fine with simple keyboard and mouse - I have some extra keystrokes bound to mouse keys.. and having a wheel etc helps - but its not imperitive .. and I often use the normal keys rather that my binds.

    Yep I agree with Ethics Gradient, you should be fine with mouse /keyboard combo.

    If you want stuff to add to your Christmas list I'd thouroughly recommend a projector..hl2 looks mighty fine played in massive widescreen :smashin:

    I'll give it a go but I'm not sure if I can be that persuasive. :D

    Ok then, go for a mouse with more buttons which might work out a bit cheaper than a pj :laugh:

    I like the nostromo a lot.

    For FPS I find that the keyboard and mouse combo is the best. No need to shell out for any more hardware, plus the option to configure the layout to your own taste. A mouse with extra buttons and a wheel is very helpful too.

    Yep, consensus :)

    All I have is a basic keyboard and Logitech MX510 mouse, find that all FPS's work well on this combo.

    Unless you love your gadgets don't bother.
