Default Is it just me? Or does each halflife 2 part run worse then the last?

Yet, with the orange box, they all have the same graphics... For Hlaflife 2, I had the graphics maxed, 16x and 4x AA or w/e it is and all. For episode 1 I had to drop down to 8x, and I think I will drop to 4x now for episode 2. And my guy is bouncing around too or something. Its kinda wierd. I will be walking, and then, all of a sudden, my guy starts bouncing, almost like he is going from croutch to normal, or humping that girl in the game, its kinda annoying... but w/e, maybe it will go away with the graphics change next time I play.

But has anyone else noticed the less optomized as it gets newer or something? Got lazy coding the Orange Box or something, lol.

Yeah I have Gmod and with one of the latest updates they put in the Ep. 2 graphics engine. It's got the motion blur and all sorts of other crazy stuff going on, looks better but mostly just different to me.
