Idea for supplemental title.
Ok, so Half-Life has Blue-Shift and Opposing Forces, but there hasn't been a title since those two that took you out of the shoes of Gordan Freeman to tell you someone else's tale. Now I had this idea that you may find interesting. What if you had a game where you play as a combine soldier? Yeah, I know they're practically emotionless and there wouldn't be many characters to stand by your side to be your emotional anchor to the story, but what could be interesting is the atrocities that you are forced to perform as a combine against humanity. What could also be interesting is if you have these flashbacks that tell you what this character's background truly is. What would also be fun is if Barney could play a role, like perhaps he sneaks into your unit and somehow reprograms you to switch to fighting for the resistence. Like maybe it was before HL2 and after HL so it could explain Barney's arrival into City 17 and how your role is critical in that. Anyway, it's kind of a work in progress with the story so tell me what you think about the idea. :)
