ok i just beat the game completely amazed, wow the blue gravity gun kicked A$$, i was just smiling the whole time, LOL I LOVE IT. By far the best game i have ever owned or played..owns doom 3 like a flashlight kill...but anyways, wtf is gordon, is he an employee of gman, how did he just spawn into the train in the beginning, how long has it been since black mesa, why is alyx so fing hot, if gordon is an employee of gman, and if gordon just spawned into a train how was barnie and everyone expecting gordon to show up? I have my own idea of what the combine is, i think they are an evolved humans that moved to a different planet after earths resources ran dry, and they went back in time to earth and i dont know why they took it over, if u look at the ss i picked it shows a combine holding a human baby, i think that symbolizes the combine as the grown up form of teh human???? so many questions, and so confused, i already miss the game and miss al of the characters The game seems to have a definitive story goin on till you get to the end and its just like WOW what is going on, im justs tunned i dont know what to think about the story but i know the gameplay was awesome and the immersive value was amazing. THE CITADEL just was 50x better than what i thought in my head, i was just so freaking amazed of the magnitude of it all, I MEAN WOW!!!! that is SOOOOO COOL, amazing amazing game.
here is pic of combine holding human baby

but anyways, wtf is gordon, is he an employee of gman -- if you played the first Half-Life, you would know that G-man offered Gordon a choice after the Black Mesa Incident. He could either work for G-man, or he could... erm... face a rather undignified end fighting against an unbeatable number of enemies (you were dumped in a room with Xen grunts as far as the eye could see, as I recall, if you refused his offer).
how did he just spawn into the train in the beginning -- G-man seems to have mastered the art of teleportation, so he probably just dumped Gordon on the train with that.
how long has it been since black mesa -- You know, that's a good question -- I don't know. I think Gordon was either in stasis, or brought forward in time, because HL1 wasn't set too far in the future; in fact, a lot of modern-day weapons were used, such as an MP5.
why is alyx so fing hot -- It's called eye candy. The developers hope horny people will see her and just buy the game on impulse.
if gordon is an employee of gman, and if gordon just spawned into a train how was barnie and everyone expecting gordon to show up? -- It seems likely that they hired Gordon, so they knew he was coming because they asked him to.
It's 10 years since BM, or so I heard. Alyx is hot because she is. G-man is a crazy mofo who is kind of like heaven's MI5, he spawned on to the train at the start with the G-man's help and I haven't got a clue how Barney and that lot knew he was coming.
I have a few questions.
What is the G-Man. At the end he stops time. How the hell does he do that. Why?

robobondI have a few questions. What is the G-Man. At the end he stops time. How the hell does he do that. Why?
Nobody knows. I'm sure some people think they know, but nobody knows. We may find out in the next chapter, we may not. Until then, your guess is as good as ours.
i hope the next game or i hope there will be a next game involves the gman a lot more, i wanna find out all his tricks and whats goin on lol. im gonna go play the ending right now lol.
i mean play the end again...
I didn't make it!
okay..... Barney wasnt "expecting" freeman, if you listened he said he was undercover just saving people thats all, and you happened to run through....
The combine cant be humans.. because they came from another planet.... and secondly dont think to hard about how they came to be... like that " left earth, went back into time" thing, that is kinda pushing it a little far although good idea..
and Alyx.... well the guy up a couple already said the reason, eye candy...
the G-man... well he employs you.... thats all i know lol
i dont think they made alyx like some fake bimbo chik that wears skimpy clothing and sits on harleys in a red white and blue bikini magazines. I mean look at alyx, her clothes are just casual, not sexy, and she seems very down to earth. I dont think she is eye candy, she is just an attractive ingame character, but seems like a very realistic person. im glad valve didnt take the tomb raider route and make something out of this world, i dont think alyx could be better, just perfect imo. but i really do think that the combine is just some evolved humans that maybe were contacted into the future with the incident at black mesa, cuz of the monkey, man, combine graphic on walls. I just think its pretty obvious and its just the next step in evolution, and obvioulsy with there technology in the future they can come back in time??? Thats just my guess, no1's opinion is better than the others. But alyx is just a casual attractive realistic charcter.
