A short forum on the implications of Half Life Alyx to the Source Modding Community

As everyone by now knows, "Half Life Alyx" Trailer has just been released. The game seems to have renewed interest in the Half Life Series let alone Valve games. So here i am thinking, what could the renewed interest bring to our once extremely popular community? will old classics like Neotokyo and Fortress Forever Return with an influx of new players? or is it just going to be as empty as always? guys give your thoughts down below, thank you.

    No, I don't see why there'd be much interest coming back to old mods through this.
    It'll be great to see what kind of community the source2 sdk ends up sprouting, though.

    Don't know why people would just come back to old Source mods. I think the party will be at Source 2. I really am looking forward to being able to make some mods or whatever with Source 2. A complete HL2 conversion to Source 2 would be mad.

    Heh, well, we got GoldSrc modding community, and it doesn't look like it's going to die anytime soon, so...

    So i guess people would still make content for original Source engine games/mods, but on the other hand, i don't think that the new Half-Life game would attract a lot of people to older Source 1 games...

    I honestly don't think so. Maybe Half-life 2 sales will rise a bit,along with Black Mesa's.

    I think the "professional" modders have given up on anything valve related but you will always have the hobbiest that will do it for fun. The modding scene is still very alive.
