IF alyx was an infant or young child when the combine came into earth and took over, and she is like 20 something years old now would that mean gordon is an old guy...also was gordon frozen in time after black mesa and then brought back onto the train into city 17??? i know that the combine invaded when alyx was young because dog was built to protect alyx. Why cant freaking valve provide more answers...just wehn you think uve got it you don't have an idea, you just have one of a thousand theories, but i guess thats also a good thing to keep you guessing like this. I think gordon was hired by the resistance for his "expertise", and they got gordon thru gman, and gman supplied the final product(gordon). I think thats how barney expected him. Its all so wierd, i still have the slightest idea of what gman actually is, also i kept getting this feeling thru out the game like the characters were not telling me the whole truth, i think they all know a ton more than what you(gordon) knows, i think they know gman, and they know all about the combine and all that jazz, i dont know just some of my thoughts, city 17 and gman and all the charcters are all soooooo i dont know, just scary and seem to be holding back 2 me....:confused:

I agree, though I'm confused whether G-Man froze Gordon in time or not, since Alyx is about 20 something, but Barney's still young.
Yeah, valve doesn't leave many answers, but it causes people to play the game more, because you learn more every time you play. I like it this way SO much more than the Halo way... after the first run thru that, I never wanted to play again.
I could never tell how old Barney was in the old one because the models were so crappy! Apparently it's set 10 years after HL and the G-Man gave Gordon an injection or something that sent him to sleep until the G-Man needed him again.
hmm how u know that, then if hl2 was set 10 years after hl then that means she would be like 11-12 and thats why she needed dog....for pleasure
Maybe she was already born and that's why at the start when you meet her she says; "I bet you don't remember me".
