I really REALLY hope that they conclude the storyline.

I love the story surrounding the Half-Life universe as much as anyone, but we need some closure. We need to have some sort of conclusion to the great story started more than  6 years ago. 
 
How about it Valve? Will you let us see Mr. Freeman rest?

@papuccino1: They already said several times that Episode 3 will be the end of the Freeman story line.

***SPOILER***

Based on how Eli Vance said that Freeman had to destroy the Borealis (sp?) no matter what, I'm guessing some self-sacrifice of sorts.

I wouldn't be surprised if 'Episode 3' turned/turns into Half Life 3 somewhere along the way.  They've been very quiet about Half Life for a very long time.  I know they keep saying their employees get to choose what project they wanna work on, but you have to figure that a decent chunk of them would decide to stick with Half Life - widely regarded as a genuine classic franchise in video game history - rather than become part of a production line churning out L4D content.
 
It's surely been far too long for just another 3/4 hours of content slapped on top of the source engine?  There was ~ 1 year between E1 and E2 release.  If E3 came out next holiday that would be ~3 years since E2 release.

I wouldnt mind it being HL3 or maybe a totaly new valve game

HL3 will likely use a new engine, but the source enginge is good enough to throw out another episode

I really want a Half Life 3, let that be the closure game.
