i mean we always see him with the bare head but technically he couldn't survive without it

I'm talking about the ingame canon (not the cover arts). I am simply asking how can Gordon survive in Xen

How can Gordon survive anything from HL1 to EP2?
Xen has oxygen.
However alot of other things he gets involved in should need a helmet, toxic waste etc
He also regens oxygen instantly, you could say thats because of the suit + helm.

He probarly is, otherwise he wouldn't survive against headcrabs, getting shot in the face and swimming in toxic waste without getting cancer.

I think that showing his face is more for the aesthetic and gameplay sake than realism (like how you can eat food instantanly in Bioshock 2 without Delta removing his helmet or how we don't really see the helmet borders on the Doomguy's face)

None of the Xen wildlife or Xen forces need breathing apparatus.

This doesn't prove that human can breath in Xen
Why would it not work both ways.

Barney can survive on Xen and his helmet doesn't look any better than HEV helmets.

nothing is canon or non-canon in the valve universe. valve corporation themselves stated that the games are "just games". http://half-life.wikia.com/wiki/Half-Life_Wiki:Canon

"The Half-Life series canon has never been officially defined by Valve, and probably never will. Series' writer Marc Laidlaw stated that they do not "get involved in issues of canonicity," that "canon itself is non-canon," and that there is "no official stance," "just the games" as they are. "Canon itself is non-canon" emphasizes the fact that a few to no plot points are set in stone and that they can change anything during the development of further games, the aim being to have a good game before having a good story."

Would the air pressure be different on another planet?
