[QUOTE=_Underlined_;16720329]Gordan freeMAN = GMAN.[/QUOTE] No, you're dumb.
How is IS Gman, anyway? ... Oh god, please don't kill me like you did lankist. Here, I'll even be productive. I think that they aren't going to reveal his identity until the very end of Episode 3, and we should all be paitient and wait for it.
G-Man is a man.
RAPIST :hump:
I wish people would stop saying Gman is Gordon Freeman He cant be, Look at Gman's hair and forehead, Gman has a widows peak at his forehead, but Gordon dosen't have one, Now a widows peak only appears on birth a.k.a its in your DNS, you cant get it when you age.

He is Gordons therapist, gordon is like the guy that is altair in the future, on a crappy mindthingy. And evrything is wondourful cloudy dream.
[QUOTE=mikeyt493;16718586]Personally, I think that he is the man who helped Gordon accomplish what he has. I think he's a sort of... 'Guardian Angel' if you may. For instance, he appears several times throughout the games, but no one ever notices him. He communicates with you through your mind, giving insight to the future. [highlight][b]He won't let anything happen to Gordon[/b][/highlight] because Gordon is destined for great things. (or, more great things). And in episode 2, where he speaks to Alyx, it was clearly a warning of what happens at the end. Not spoiling incase anyone hasn't finished the game.[/QUOTE] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu5X3O_vXO0&feature=related[/media]
[QUOTE=ZuXer;16772048]Play EP2. And Blue shift. And Opposing Force. Have a box.[/QUOTE] And half life decay
He uses uberleethax
[QUOTE=i-am-teh-sex;21346247][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu5X3O_vXO0&feature=related[/media][/QUOTE] In Half-Life 2, he says the choice was an illusion. No matter what, Gman "uses" Gordon.
[QUOTE=cdBiohazard;16773327]I think that Gman is an old Gordon. He came from future somehow, maybe it will be revealed in next episodes. Maybe Gordon did not save the world, so he went back into the past to show the young gordon the real path. Well, here are the pics.

You will see a pistol and some papers.[/QUOte] Gman has widow's peak, a genetic trait. Also, one a render, the other's concept/boxart. [editline]08:41PM[/editline] [QUOTE=NoShogun;16824548]I just had this crazy theory today that probably wouldn't work, but here it is for fun: The Gman is Cave Johnson from Aperture Science, who was stuck in a portal during an early experiment. As portals are links from one place to the other, they can go through space and time. During this accident, Cave Johnson was stuck in the brief phase in which one has entered the first portal but has not emerged from the second. Since time is not an aspect here, this would explain the GMan's ability to seemingly exist outside of time itself. His 'employers' could be Aperture Science, or someone funding it, and his appearances at Black Mesa could have to do with the rivalry between the two companies, and his unpredictable behavior could be attributed to the fact that when stuck in the sort of limbo between portals, he has little idea of time, sometimes understanding it and other times, explaining his times of hostility towards Gordon (from Black Mesa) stemming from Aperture Science's rivalry with the company. What's on the Borealis could possibly be something that could 'rectify' the problem with the portals, effectively freeing the now malicious Cave Johnson/Gman from any barriers holding him back. Crazy, I know, but at least I tried instead of just repeating that stupid meme.[/QUOTE] CAve Johnson died before the portal gun was created. HE DID IT FOR SHOWER CURTAINS.
[B]GMan [/B]has become easily the most prominent (at least plot-wise) character in the entire Half Life Saga. Nameless and shrouded in secrecy, GMan single-handedly orchestrated the Resonance Cascade, which brought upon the Earth the Portal Storms as well as the invasion of the Combine. Even after all of these things, it is not clear who he works for, what his motives are, and who else (besides Gordon and Eli) knows of his existence. [B][B][IMG]http://members.shaw.ca/halflifestory/assets/bullet.gif[/IMG] [/B]Does anyone else know about GMan besides Gordon?[/B] GMan operates in mysterious ways, obviously not bound by the laws of physics or even space-time itself. He can make himself appear or disappear anywhere at will, or can make himself appear to only a single person at a time. We know that GMan isn't simply a hallucination of Gordon's; Dr. Eli Vance, Gordon's former colleague at Black Mesa, mentions to Gordon that GMan told him prior to the Resonance Cascade that Vance should "prepare for unforseeen consequences". We also know that GMan has also spoken to Alyx Vance on occasion. With this in mind, it could easily be extrapolated that GMan's influence acts far beyond Gordon and his close friends, perhaps even extending beyond humanity, to the vortigaunts, and even the Combine itself. [B][B][IMG]http://members.shaw.ca/halflifestory/assets/bullet.gif[/IMG] [/B]So who do you think is GMan & what is his goal [/B][B]?[/B] The [URL="http://ep1.half-life2.com/story.php"]official HL2E1 site[/URL] calls GMan a [I]"sinister inter dimensional bureaucrat."[/I] The way things are going, I believe that G-Man is an agent of an interstellar rebel alliance, larger organization, or entire race (assuming a human form), seeking to try to break down the ruthless Combine empire, an empire which seems to have existed far before the events of HL1. This rebel force has incredible technology to be able to control teleportation in a highly advanced way, and is arguably much more advanced than the Combine itself. GMan could even be a divine being, though I'm not a big fan of that idea. I don't think GMan and his rebel alliance really cares about humanity all that much, but rather, they see Earth as a viable battleground to fight the Combine on, or a strategic way to divert the Combine's attention. I feel that GMan's motives and goals are the very nexus of the entire Half Life Saga. I feel that GMan is the deepest secret of the entire Half-Life saga, and once he is fully uncovered, we will fully understand the core of the entire series. [B][B][IMG]http://members.shaw.ca/halflifestory/assets/bullet.gif[/IMG] [/B][/B][B]Doesn't G-Man say you're working for the highest bidder - does that mean you were contracted out for the Rebellion?[/B] As I see it, yes, Gordon Freeman is free for contract work outside of working for GMan. However, he's not on a contract during HL2. At the end of HL2 G-Man tells Gordon that he has received offers for Gordon's work. He doesn't mention once that he has actually taken up any of the offers, however. Right now that highest bidder is G-Man, though that may change. [B][B][IMG]http://members.shaw.ca/halflifestory/assets/bullet.gif[/IMG][/B][/B][B]What's in G-Man's suitcase?[/B] No idea. My best guess is that in order to portray himself as a respectable "human" he chose to imitiate a businessman. In which case the briefcase is simply a prop. Some of you emailed me a screenshot of a texture of the inside of the suitcase found in HL1 by noclipping, but the thing is, we were never meant to see that. It was probably an artist having fun, because if the [I]only[/I] way we can see it is by noclipping, then it was probably not part of the intended game experience.

you know who i think gman is? the dead thread this thread should be.
G-Man is an intergalactic used car salesman.
g-man and gordan cant be the same people.... why? becuase gman has a widows peak which is a domanint gene. Gordan... Does not. Also... the reason they look alike is because noone of the halflifes have much of a difference in peoples models. Also also: in gmans suitcase is a pistol...
GMAN is Alyx's father. and MossMAN is his wife.
You ever wonder why you can't catch up to the GMan? No matter where he is, he always runs off just before you can get to where he was standing. You know the reason? Run, run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man. GMan = Gingerbread Man IT BECOMES CLEAR

Honestly, I don't think even Valve knows. Think about it, since HL1, Valve has told us jack shit about the G-man, except for vague clues that seem to contradict each other. Example: In Half-Life 1, his name is slang for Government-man, and he talks about your weapons being "government property", so he seems to be a government agent. But then in Half-Life 2, the US government has been wiped off the Earth, and he talks about "offers for your services", implying he's some kind of inter-dimensional mercenary contractor, with you as the mercenary. I think Valve is just holding off and dropping red herrings until they can think of a good idea for who he is and how to fit that into the plot.

Did this thread just become invaded by kids?
[QUOTE=KnightVista;21414610]But Gordon Freeman has brown hair. Gman has black kinda purplish highlights in his hair.

He's an alien mercenary middleman whom shape-shifts to whatever species is relevant. Explains why Gordon's contract is up for the highest bidder, why G-Man uses all the business talk, and why he looks like a human businessman or government agent.
