Dat ending...
So, what did you guys think about the ending? I thought it was perfect. I have so many questions, but I guess I'll have to wait for HL3. Also, did you guys think that Breen could still be alive? I didn't see the sphere he was in fall down quickly, so I think he may have escaped.

Well, what can I say? Of course I love the ending and I regard it very highly. You realise the sequels to the game are Half-Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two, right? Or were you referring to the ending of Episode Two? Either way, I think Breen may have an appearance or bigger reference again, but probably not as himself or not alive anyway. Maybe another recorded transmission which reveals a few things? I know the Beta had some unused dialogue that could be brought back. Otherwise, I've mostly forgotten about poor old Breen. The great actor himself has actually passed away recently, which is regretful since he made such an awesome character.

Dr. Breen was givin' a host body by our "benefactors" so he could escape though a Combine portal before Gordon jammed a crowbar in his♥♥♥♥♥

Anyways the voice actor for Dr. Breen died a few years back now. Shame that, he was a great bad guy. So don't expect a return of the Breen. Whos to say that a weird alien (Maybe an Advisor.) dosen't show up with Breen's consciousness. Or something stranger.

I just got Hl2. I don't really want to spend more money on those other games.

Well, I've seen some walkthroughs of HL2 Episode 1 and 2, but I don't want to buy sequels or prequels. I would have prefered it if Episode 1 and 2 were both included in Hl2, with a higher price, of course.

If Breen's alive I would then he's probably being punished by the Combine for having failed to stop Freeman. Now what ending we talking? HL2, HL2E1, HL2E2? Cause HL2 left me really excited for the next opening, but thne E1 kinda threw me. The idea of the Gman being in control and having Freeman be up for hire to the highest bidder was interesting, as was the constant motif of Freeman entering the games from a train, a metaphor for movement, progression, change and whatever else you care to attribute to it. E1's ending seemed anticlimactic to me for some reason but I may just be judging it too harshly as I was still thrown by the strangness of the idea of Episodic installments and the fact that it was later admitted that they should have been called HL3 E1, E2 and so on. I didn't like the idea that the third and possibly final instalment wasn't coming as one big, epic, kickass package as was the case when HL2 finally dropped. And for E2 of course it was great. It's the main reason why we are so eager to get E3/HL3. I want to know what happens next! I was of course sad and almost♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥off that Eli died, especially the way it happened was so brutal and sickening. But it only went to show just how much I had come to care for these characters.

half-life 2 is a sequel to half-life
I've never really considered that Breen could still be alive, but maybe he was teleported to safety by an Advisor or something, but then just creates more questions, like - Why would they do that?
