I just finished it for the first time like three minutes ago, and I'm slightly confused, but I have my own theory I'd like to pose: Breen said something about being hired, so I'm wondering if perhaps Eli and Alyx / maybe Klein hired Gordon through the G-Man? That's the only part of the whole equation that just makes no sense to me, why Breen would know he was hired... And also, who was Breen talking to at the very end? After Mossman sets you free, and you are riding up in that final elevator with Alyx, Breen is talking to some alien-looking creature. Is that creature anyone/thing specific? Or is it just assumed that it's Breen's master... Can't wait for expansions to come out for this... The graphics are great and everything, but I really like how the game completely consumes you. Though this isn't my favorite game of all time, I think I've never felt so much like I was actually IN a game, before. That's why I'm waiting for expansions. I think the source engine is great, and that really helps with the whole immersion thing, but as long as I still felt as "involved", the game could use Doom (The original...not Doom 3) graphics, and I'd be happy. And I just can't get that from deathmatch or CS:S... I want more story... Wow, what a discombobulated post... So, any thoughts on my theory?
