Added DiffLines:

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Gordon Freeman is a narcissistic sociopath who sees other people as tools for his own gain. Ross Scott regularly chats with fans, happily endorses the spin-offs, and is generally a laid-back reasonable guy.

* CreatorBacklash: A mild example. Ross Scott preferred working on his more complex Machinima series ''CivilProtection'', but the difficulty of filming and coding it caused him to concentrate more on the more popular, easier to make ''Freeman's Mind''.

** Ross originally planned not to do ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' in full, instead just having a sort of AbridgedSeries[=/=]highlight reel of all the best jokes he had thought of. However, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohyB8V7Na_0 Beg-A-Thon]] video brought in so many donations that he felt like he pretty much had to do the whole thing, comparing it to how Creator/MarkHamill felt about appearing in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' as Luke Skywalker.

** Website/SFDebris mentioned Freeman's Mind in a review of VideoGame/SystemShock2, noting that he considers it funnier than his own attempts at a similar series.

* CreatorBacklash: Sort of. Ross Scott prefered to work on ''CivilProtection'', but difficulty in coding caused him to concentrate more on the easier to make ''Freeman's Mind''.

Added DiffLines:

** Episode 61 has the "power up the portal to Xen sequence". The volume was balanced in a way that it was impossible for the scientist's voice to be heard over the din, but Ross decided it was funnier if Gordon legitimately couldn't hear what the scientist was saying. Ross also decided to leave in Gordon accidentally falling down in that sequence for similar reasons.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Yes, this trope can even apply to web-only content. The extremely long hiatus after episode 44 was due to contract disputes between Ross and Machinima. This got so bad that Ross left Machinima for good and now releases all upcoming episodes in affiliation with Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.

This got so bad that Ross left Machinima for good and now releases all upcoming episodes in affiliation with Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. Ross went and added annotations on every single episode telling viewers to visit another website to see actual machinima content.
