Happy Sunday, everyone and welcome back to yet another Gaming History You Should Know, where we feature some of the best produced original gaming documentaries from all across the web.  Today, we’re going to be looking at something that players have been eagerly anticipating for nearly a decade, and with each year that passes it feels less and less likely we will ever actually see it.

Ever since 2007, gamers everywhere have been waiting for Valve to release Half-Life 2 Episode 3.  A few years ago, I did a video analysis on why I thought it was taking so long to make that game, and what the consequences of its long development were.  In 2007, Valve was planning to release more than just one new Half-Life 2 episode, they had many studios across the world working on even more episodes!  After I released my video, gamers across the web asked about what happened some of the lost Half-Life 2 episodes, a rather difficult prospect to research.

The YouTube Channel GVMERS is responsible for some great original gaming content. They did an amazingly in-depth look at the development of Prey 2, analyzed the F.E.A.R. franchise, and chronicled the development and cancellation of EA’s Tiberium.  Today, we’re going to feature a fantastic video they produced where they took an in-depth look at the other planned Half-Life 2 episodes which were quietly cancelled due to the repeated delays of Half-Life 2 Episode 3.  Let’s take a look!

Hope you enjoyed the video, we have a lot more gaming history to share with you each Sunday, so be sure to stay tuned!
