* In ''Half Life'', the surviving scientists at the Lambda Core's plan were to teleport Gordon into Xen so he could destroy the mastermind behind the invasion. ''But they never even mentioned how they were going to bring Gordon back to Earth''. It's entirely possible that the scientists at the Lambda Core were planning to just sacrifice Gordon for the sake of humanity and to leave him there, stranded in Xen for the rest of his life if the G-Man weren't to intervene.

* Counts as a StealthPun, too: While all the other original ''Half-Life'' titles were about things coming apart, ''Blue Shift'' was about things coming ''together''. In astronomy, guess what being blue-shifted means?

** Well they ''try'' [[ArtificialBrilliance to use tactics]], you just kill them too fast for them to actually do anything

* FreemansMind pointed out a particular brilliance: The reason that the building was falling apart was because the AliensAndMonsters were teleporting into the walls.

* G-Man often addresses Gordon as if he worked for G-Man, meaning when Gordon was taken out of G-Man's influence at the beginning of Episode One, he was given a ''mandatory reprieve''.

* Barnacles can be killed by the Crowbar in one hit. Barnacles tend to be scraped off of ships with objects, like, you guessed it, a Crowbar.

** This could go one of two ways in the long run; someone like Gordon could easily of just doomed all of humanity to be exterminated once the Combine can move in full, or his survival and combat capabilities and the sheer amount of destruction that follows in his wake may have other consequences. If G-Man, who is AmbiguouslyHuman enough as it is, had Freeman's contract 'open to the highest bidder' as just another human on Earth for all we know, imagine how terrified or impressed the Combine might be at the idea that ''one man'' of this puny species basically caused a planet-wide rebellion. Especially if they could've had him on ''their'' side.

** At one point someone actually asked Marc Laidlaw himself about how Gordon has a HUD if he doesn't have the helmet on. Marc's response was that they didn't actually think about that, and that [[CrowningMomentOfFunny maybe the suit puts his HUD onto his phat specs.]]
