Half-Life 2

I'm going to keep this nice and short, do you actually think the G-Man is Gordon Freeman? Could the story actually be like inFAMOUS and have future self tricking past self? I'm not saying that would be bad however I would come to expect better from Valve. It would feel very anticlimactic for me, however that just might be myself. Thoughts?

I think that the g-man will forever be a mystery.

I do think it's definetly him from the future or a relative. If you look carefully, they both have the same eye color and the same eyes since one of them is higher than the other, they both have that. Also gordon doesn't talk and the g-man seems like he is not confortable with speech. That's my guess anyways even if valve tried to dismiss that as untrue.

G man 
 
Gordon Freeman

I mean, it totally is possible, but I'd like to see a more interesting explanation to the G Man. But that's just me.

Those are compelling arguments that most people use to add validity toward that argument. I think Gordon Freeman is a little generic so you could make him look like anyone if you want... especially with those plastic glasses. Plus, have anyone of you played inFAMOUS?

@archsoldier1: I've played infamous and I don't want to spoil anything, however I know what your getting at.

G Man = Government Man. And I don't think there's any hidden meaning to that, either. I totally can't remember what it said in the old Half-Life manual, but it seems to me that he's only called the G-man because he introduced himself as a government agent back at Black Mesa.

G-Man is Eli incarnate.

Got any proof to back that up? I mean if that were true, then Eli could actually have that talk with Gordon.
