    HL didn't take part on Gordon's first day at Black Mensa. It's obvious but his rapport with other scientists that he's been there for quite some time. And the fact that the security guard teases him about being late again

    18:20 So he was transported into the future by the G-man into an Eastern European city and controlled by an interdimensional race and the rest of Earth had been subjugated? This was never originally explained and I always wondered what the hell was going on. Also, I don`t remember anyone even sounding East-European and wasn`t Barny one of the combine soldiers? He wasn`t alien. How`d he get that job?

    I dont get why titles like this are abandoned. Stalker, half life, age of empires, painkiller, unreal, etc.

    They are either waiting for a technological leap for hl3 to embody or they will have smaller developer create the game to save face should it fail.
    If you look at how many sequals exist in movie world you better believe there will eventually be a hl3.

    Gabe's Greed, Valve's inability to see past money, or lack of resources to spread too thin? No, none of these are the true case. That may be the perspective of the executives, but far from the wishes of the devs and employees. Enough voices internally and externally, if loud enough, will produce results. There will eventually come a time where the generation who played half-life 2 is no longer going to buy or care about half life 3. most of us who experianced half-life one are in our 30's and 40's. Another 10 or so years and HL3 is no longer viable to release because they will have lost theie majority fan base. Yes a new generation is there for the taking, and perhaps that's their plan, No longer concerned with those of us who want the end of the story, and focused on the next generation of gamers to finish and create a new story simultaneously, starting the cycle all over again from scratch. These companies no longer see short sighted. They are thinking long term, 25 years into the future. Most of these Gaming companies already have the next 20 years of plans laid out with wiggle room and exceptions. You can bet that valve has a plan for Half-life, and the plan is to save the company with it when needed. The day Valve is close to tanking and going out of business, is the day HL3 will come out.

    Doom started it all for me as I hosted LAN parties back in the day. Then when Half Life came out I was able to have more players in game. Progressing to Counter Strike I don't I have had as much fun since. I don't believe I have played another game that works as well in single player mode either… Awesome – why has there been nothing released that compares or excels Half Life2?

    Half life 2 was one of the best things i played on PC. It was amazing! I did not care it was delayed! Overall atmosphere was 1010, graphics 10/10, game-play 9/10.

    I remember my friend saying he’d seen a game called half life at his neighbour’s house where people actually speak.

    3 (yes, 3!) big reasons why Valve fell:

    1) Gabe's marital problems
    2) Gabe's aging, tiredness and other health problems
    3) Too much idealistic faith in the Flat Management system.
    Did not realize that the system would backfire and collapse when the company grew too big, degenerated into big ego fights and politicking.

    Yeah, that's why.

    There's nothing stopping valve from making Half Life 3 other than valve itself.

    Ed Catmull's book, Creativity Inc, might inspire Valve to finish games again. P.S. Great video!

    Half-Life 3 would most likely wait for the VR gaming to be more affordable and spread. Its in Half-Life's nature to turn the gaming world around every time a new game come. Keep in mind that the real money is in multiplayer games now, not in single players like in the old days. So I bet they are working on something epic and when it comes…it will be a fucking sensation.

    Half Life 2 was my fav game for many years, but looking back now, I actually prefer Half Life 1

    Project Borealis Is a fan made recreation of Half Life in the Unreal Engine and aims to make the last chapter – Chapter 3.
    So we may yet get the 3rd chapter – just not from valve. — Maybe.
