Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: Ross Scott did enough research to ensure that any time Freeman spouts physics technobabble, it's accurate physics technobabble. He explained in a fan chat that this is a combination of remembering things from high school and doing just enough research to sound knowledgeable. Freeman's rant about scientists having trouble with Newton's formula for gravity is an example of the former, his lecture on fermions is the latter.

* TakeThatAudience: Instead of ending credits (since it only takes a couple of seconds to show everyone involved), the last episode shows a collection of the most banal, misspelled, or obtuse comments appended to the series, including at least a few hundred different people asking "what game is this?"

* CharacterDevelopment: Over the course of the series, Freeman slowly evolves from a NonActionGuy into a gun-toting BadAss who has SeenItAll. Best exemplified by his reactions to dangerous situations - in the beginning he has a minor FreakOut about the mere presence of aliens in the facility, whereas by the time he encounters his first battle tank he barely even seems to notice it.

--->"If there's one thing I've learned today, it's that missile launches are not like the movies at all. I thought there were all these procedures, two different people with special keys, a small crew of people to monitor all the systems... but no. It's just a big, red button that says 'Launch.'"

* SanitySlippage: "OH GOD I'M OUT OF AMMO!! WHOSE JOB IS IT TO RELOAD?! YOU'RE FIRED!! WHAT DO YOU MEAN THERE'S NO AMMO LEFT?! YOU'RE FIRED TOO!!" Yep, he's talking to himself. It seems to calm him down a little.
** Teeters on the edge of total breakdown when he first enters Xen, as he's utterly furious at (what he perceives to have happened) being tricked and abandoned by the scientists, and completely terrified at the prospect of navigating a world that makes no physical sense. Once again, screaming at himself for a few minutes seems to help.

** Gordon hears a couple of scientists having an accident with some dangerous equipment. Entering the room, he finds a whole heap of gore, in the middle of which lies the gauss gun, one of the most powerful weapons in the game...which Gordon absolutely refuses to touch, as the last guys to mess with the thing were ''blown to smithereens''.
