    GameInformer: What We Want In Half-Life 3


    November 16, 2004: Gordon Freeman wakes up on a train barreling into City 17 en route to crowbarring a few hundred head crabs and blowing up the terrifying Citadel that looms over the blasted hellscape that used to be Earth. Valve has released two minor episodic installments since that blessed day that Half-Life 2 first came out, but we’re still waiting for news – any news! – about a proper Half-Life 3. To fill the void created by Valve’s stony silence, here’s a list of what we hope to see in the continuing adventures of Gordon, Alyx, and DØg.

    Answers about the G-man

    The enigmatic G-man is, in some ways, more of a central character to the Half-Life saga than Gordon Freeman himself, yet we don’t know anything about him other than that he has an unexplained interest in Gordon. He’s saved Gordon from certain death multiple times only to drop him right back where the action is hottest. What reason does he have to oppose the Combine, even if indirectly? Is he a remnant of some long-forgotten race that was assimilated by the Combine in centuries past? An extra-dimensional being trying to fight the ennui of immortality by watching humanity’s last gasp? One of the central figures in Half-Life has been a closed book since the series’ inception. It’s time to end that.*

    * If you hide G-man clues behind an obscure ARG, Valve, we will hate you forever.**

    ** Not really. But please don’t.



    Pick up where it left off

    One of the great things about Half-Life is that each entry has picked up more or less exactly where the previous one ended. Valve is full of creative types that no doubt have plenty of ideas that they’d love to make into games, but would require a cop-out “ten years later, when humanity has repelled the Combine invasion…” interstitial to fit into this universe. Please don’t put those into Half-Life 3. It’s not that we don’t want to play those other games that exist in Valve’s heads, but they shouldn’t be Half-Life 3. We want to know what’s up with Gordon and Alyx, not what’s way down the road in the fictional timeline.

    Long article, click for the rest.

    Worth a read.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
    Live and die on this day.
    Live and die on this day.

    All I want is there to be a damn Half-Life 3. I am not picky. I will even be happy with just a new episode.

    Just play the games and you'll understand. Seriously, just play'em.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Yes. Yes they are good. Very good games, among the best IMO. A dude basically causes a catastrophe at an experimental facility, and aliens invade the earth via dimensional rifts and enslave mankind.

    I have a feeling they are working on a whole new engine and we aren't going to see another Half Life game for a while. The graphics will be unreal too.

    It would be amazing if Half Life 3 wows everyone the way Half Life 2 did back when it was released. It was easily the best looking game of its time.

    Hopefully we get news on some more Half Life sometime this year. Valve needs to eventually make a game with a 3 in the title.

    not taking 15 years to make sequels would be nice


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    Well, it goes without saying that the PC version will look amazing, but if Valve wants to impress their audience with state of the art visuals and physics then they would have to develop Half-Life 3 for next-gen consoles as well.
    Thanks to Kwes for the avatar and Sylar for the signature!
