Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people, people he cares about, are counting on him.

That was absolutely awesome. Who would have thought source could have such a cinematic quality! This would have been a better trailer for episode 2 than valve's to be honest, although the spoilers would have made it impractical but hey.

Valve is unique. They're the creator of our video games. They're not just games; they're stories. Adventures. They give us their tools of free will to help us create more stories. Like 1187. In HL2, you plunge into a world of sadness and decay, and you fight back. You win. But then they exact revenge. In 1187, you are plunged into a world of darkness and despair. You come across a man named John, and fight across the exiles of Xen into the rest of the world and its horribly transformed zombies. In Portal, you are safe inside a center of tests. You are led towards the end of the test by a robot named GLaDOS. This robot seems to like you, until the end, when you learn she was just planning to kill you. You then proceed to reach her and kill her, preventing her from doing this to more people.

This video isn't just a video. Its a lesson.
*sigh*. The world is magnificent. I can't wait for Episode 3, then we can see more stories to come. Keep up the work, Valve.

Description

Gordon Freeman is the most complex and best-realized character in videogame history, and he is without a single line of dialogue. On Oct 15 2009, GameSpot users voted Gordon as "All Time Greatest Video Game Hero" Whether the voters were aware or not, Gordon winning is a testament to how strong of an impact Valve's perfected design philosophy of "never pulling the player out of the game" has on you throughout the Half-life experience. Half-life is never a passive experience; you exist in the world. The player is not portraying Gordon Freeman. Gordon Freeman is portraying the player. So you are Gordon, which in itself is a representation of the game as a whole, an embodiment of the experience's entirety. I just blew my mind. But because you are a silent protagonist, it's up to the characters that react to you in the world you are immersed in--most notably Alyx Vance--to create your "personality".

I started my playthrough of HL2 again after Gordon won. I recorded some moments along the way to make this tribute because I love the series, I love Valve, and I of course love Gabe Newell for being so fat (Episode 3 delayed another hour). While this isn't a tribute to Alyx per se, I did focus the video around her since in-game she's used as a means of evoking emotional responses from the player, and that's perfect for video purposes. I can't exactly show Gordon either, but that's okay because Gordern Frompwhistle liek Alyiks Vernk ;) . Alyx is responsible for making Gordon the hero and she's the first videogame companion to not be useless and annoying... she is mai waifu. Their adventures together fit this song much better than the Prince of Persia duo that this song was originally used for I might add.
