Gordon Freeman is waiting for Half Life 3 announcement in new fan video

If there’s one thing that gets PC gamers excited, it’s any news about Half Life 3. Anything and everything can be taken as a sign that the game is confirmed. This new video is brilliantly done and totally confirms that the game is coming, but Gordon Freeman might need some training before launch day.

Here is the really cool video of Gordon Freeman as a bored, overweight loner in a room, desperate for Half Life 3 to be announced.

In fact, all he needs is a white beard and he might almost be bordering on looking like Gabe Newell. Maybe that’s the point – we’ll only get an updated game when Gordon Freeman can look like Gabe Newell and all the Valve worshippers can lose track of reality. Sounds like a plan to me.

No, there is still news about Half Life 3, and probably won’t be until someone at Valve decides to take it on as a pet project. At least we can watch this and giggle, and then cry ourselves to sleep as we wait for any actual announcement from Valve.

I like videos like this. I’d love to see more of my favorite characters in their down time as they wait for their next games. Next up, please show me Jade from Beyond Good and Evil. I want to know what she’s up to. And that’s another forgotten franchise, so it makes sense. Right?

    It perfectly conveys the sense of resigned hopefulness that I feel towards HL3.

      All it need was that song say something

    Diablo 3 burned me too much. I will not wait in breathless anticipation for the-next-release ever again.

    I’ve lost all interest in HL3 at this point, it can never live up to our expectations now. Recently watched Dumb and Dumber To after waiting 20 years for the sequel, and while it was good it could never live up to the expectation created after all those years of waiting.

      I completely agree. How could a team take all the details from largest to smallest and re-captivate us with what would be a re-invention at this point?

    Be careful what you wish for.

    What’s Half-Life? is it like Dota? Said the new generation

      God I hate Dota. Its basically all what my friends and family talk about.

        I don’t hate it, I just don’t see it as a fun game. I do see it as absorbing all my time as it’s a game one needs to get heavily invested in to truly be any good at. Then there’s the colourful DOTA community.

    Why would they make games anymore? They making plenty with commissions from Steam…

    If we’re talking sequels you can give me Fallout 4 first. That’ll keep me busy while Value gets their head out of their ass.

    Damn it, now I’m curious about this vid.

    Personally I don’t care much for a HL3. Although I would love to see more of the story I just don’t think it’s something that should be done. Valve will spend lots of effort on it and in the end there will be a whole bunch of fans who are pissed because it wasn’t perfect.

    That was seriously cool. And seriously sad.

    Let it go… It will never release… Valve might just come out and say they abandoned the series altogether and just leave it at that.

    All these years of “HL3 confirmed” jokes are just that, a mockery of something that will never come. At this stage I’ll go as far as saying The Last Guardian has a better chance of releasing than a Half Life 3.

    The Gravity Gun is pretty sick
