2:34 i think its because he caused the event so he watches over you, evaluating what you do to see if you would be a valuabe tool against the combine

I didn't know the elevator area was a reference to the Akira manga.

The audio edit is so shitty. I mean, put some pauses between two sentences and don't cut everything out. I had the feeling, that everything was just one big sentence.

In half life 2 episode 2, the screen that shows when you destroy the car or let a strider blow up the rocket usually refers to the events as a "game"

Anyone else annoyed that the secrets and easter eggs were only ever described, and not actually SHOWN visually?? That made this a terrible video to me.

KommissarBanx (11 months ago)
Friendly Psycho The Gman terminations which takes up a good entire 1/3 of the video and the VOX system part which follows it. It was like he gave up editing halfway through the video and just did a voiceover

The map de_nuke might be one of the maps in half - life
MrSevoliciouS (3 years ago)
In opposing force I found a neat little detail. In the last level where you're fighting the big alien, and you use the Displacer Cannon's secondary fire, you'll teleport underwater and if you swim forward you can see Gina Cross (character from decay mod) dead in the water. It's not that important but I thought it was pretty cool.
vissova (3 years ago)
Fun fact, Gabe Newell's face is a "trigger" texture used in the game to texture invisible blocks that trigger events in the game when certain criteria is met, such as the player or an NPC passing through it.
TehMondasianSpartan (3 years ago)
0:30 This is removed in Half-Life Source if I'm not wrong so VNN decided to use Half-Life 1 original clip.

the last soundtrack...: lighthouse battle XD

lol i saw the akira reference too when i was playing half life for first time
Rob Verheyden (3 years ago)
"No clipping"  Did I hear that correctly?  Never heard the term before.
Rob Verheyden (3 years ago)
Suspicious Toucan (3 years ago)
+Rob Verheyden you turn on cheats with sv_cheats 1 in the console and then type in noclip and it lets you go anywhere in the map because you kind of fly around

What about the "Riller" Easter egg in on a rail?
Blondie Shackleforde' (3 years ago)
G-man is evaluating your skills, because he plans to hire you in the end of HL1. When you fail in HL2, he's firing you, and/or no longer evaluating you for future jobs.

I can't imagine the games just being tests. That would be real disappointing
Frying1Pans (3 years ago)
The gabe newell face rooms are used to store entities when they are not on screen, like the houndeye that spawns there The same room can be found underneath some halloween TF2 maps but look like an actual room used for storing the ghost In the original Half-life, you can press buttons through walls, you can do that with the elevator in FOF
Slartibarty (3 years ago)
The first one isn't an Easter egg, it's a room made to contain the map's effects, colour correction, model precacher etc, although I guess Gabe's face is technically an Easter egg.

Next do secret & easter eggs of Opposing force & Blue shift
Torgo1969 (3 years ago)
I don't believe you when you say that you get yelled at for trying to open locked security doors over and over again. That's because when I watch a "secrets and easter eggs" video, I expect to have these things demonstrated to me, not just described to me for me to take on faith.

Man, it's not original half-life , it's half-life:source, new engine and new bugs , but video was interesting , thanks
Sir Nigel Gaunt (3 years ago)
Gaben is a greedy POS.
Speed Wagon (3 years ago)
The "Test" theory is pretty obvious... i'm pretty sure the game tells you that at some point consciously or unconsciously and (this is just me) i'm pretty sure Gordon is gonna "break the system" at some point

The Gabe Newell texture is the TRIGGER texture. It's what devs use to trigger an event or add detail through effects like soundscapes. It's on every single level.

...The elevator room was a rip off...? BUT THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE PARTS OF THE GAME
dharkbizkit (3 years ago)
the "i am gordon" thing never worked out for me. and thats because of the reaction from the world outside of the player character. if theres no player choice, then npc will only react in one way. and if that way doesnt fit my mindset as gordon, the mute system doesnt work
Colin Childress (3 years ago)
0:55 Yeah, that definitely reeks of Gabe Newell, rolling around like a wrecking ball off its cord.
dragster1018aone (3 years ago)
This is not Black Mesa. Black Mesa is the name of both the location of this game and the more modern source remake,supported by valve,also called Black Mesa.
jethical b15 (3 years ago)
I Think we can all agree that Half-Life is the worst PC FPS ever, and that halo is the best FPS ever. Now, by this time you should realize that you're being trolled. Either that, or you're already replying to me why i'm a piece of shit that should kill himself.

The Secrets & Easter Eggs of Half Life " 2 " !!!!!!
ChrisMathers3501 (3 years ago)
Oh wow.  This was, actually quite good.  I never thought anybody could point out anything in Half-Life I haven't already discovered in my almost seventeen years as a Half-Life fan that I didn't already know. While I suspect the room full of Gabe-face was added in a more recent version of something like Half-Life Source or what have you instead of the original game, I was BLOWN AWAY by that Akira thing with the freight elevator.  I've never been into manga, but if Akira was cool enough to influence Half-Life, I might have to read it one day. You missed at least one thing though.  There's a developer's name in a crawlspace under the floor in On a Rail during one part where you find Marines fighting Vortigaunts.  It's hard to see even with your flashlight because it's not a texture, it's a slightly raised surface on the wall.
henriquedematos (3 years ago)
+ChrisMathers3501 Do read Akira or watch the movie, even if you're not into anime (I'm personally not very big into it) it's a fantastic science fiction work :)

Why don't you have any videos on "Half-Life: Decay"?? I haven't seen any theory videos on that, and it seems like it has a shit ton of extra stuff on half-life..
Angel Garcia (3 years ago)
You need to spend more time on the internet... also, there might be a hidden easter egg at some bathroom (probably if you no clip there).
EliTe (3 years ago)
Nice video as always dude!  You should try release as many of these as you can for the whole series of Half Life. It gets me very interested into watching these videos..

EAS, From The West (3 years ago)
You forgot the one where your in the area where you enter black mesa, (the room with the giant black mesa poster thing and the computer desk) there is the door from witch you entered, if you hit the button next to the door with the crowbar, the door will open and their will be a scientist on a broken catwalk and there's a scripted sequence when you stand on the catwalk it collapses, the scientist will be hanging on a wire then he falls and dies.

You forgot the microwave that you can tune up the heat on in black mesa, it will blow the food that is inside up, then one scientist will say, "Oh god what are you doing!?".
