* Think about it, the World was created as a backup plan for the 2000 Incident in Venice for the year 2003, how many years has it been since the event of 2? 3. How many form did we see the World evolved into? 3. (Beta, Gamma and it's {{GoldenSuperMode}} which can be fought in EX). So in theory, if the AMS didn't found out about the World's existence for over 19 years, it could potentially evolve over 19 different forms!

** [[spoiler:Killing The World doesn't just require a high-powered explosive, but also a HumanSacrifice. James and Kate were trying ''not'' to resort to that, but as The World kept evolving and growing stronger, they realized they had no choice, and thus James blows himself up in front of The World, not to blast it into smithereens but to use the death of his own life to put an end to it. Really, if exploding the PDA was all it took to destroy The World, James would've hurled the damn thing much sooner and no further effort would be required from either of them.]]

* The Boss order for the finale should be the biggest and most over the top. So The Moon, Who respawns various former bosses throughout its fight > Return of The Empress > High Priestess > Rematch with The Star > True Empress freed of her containment suit > Boss Gauntlet Rematch with the Four Kings -The Magician, The Emperor, The World and The Wheel of Fate > And the finale is The Devil.
** To explain my reasoning a bit further, Each of the four "lesser" Bosses are related to one of the Four Kings. The Star is based on The Magician, The Moon would be based on The World, The Empress is an unstable offshoot for the Emperor, Hence the containment suit and The High Priestess is Goldman's take on The Wheel of Fate. This would go further with The Devil being the culmination of All four Kings into one being.

** This would be pretty awesome, and rolling along with the idea of revolution, it would be a great place to end, cause all the mutants could have evolved into bigger, stronger, scarier, harder to shoot mutants.

* This is additionally compounded by several visual hints in all of the games besides those mentioned, particularly in the environments; The general vastness of the laboratories you visit (who would need several levels of basements, bunkers and caves just to create a zombie virus?), and the many instances of human-sized test tubes, some occupied (and even visibly exited by) the enemies you fight in the game. Equally noteworthy is the idea that its sort of a half-and-half mixture of the infected and the vat-grown. Those found wearing human clothes and general day-to-day gear can be considered bitten, infected or otherwise turned into a zombie by force, while other "wierder" types (like the ever-present skinny, naked types and shapeless, moss-covered "water" zombies) could be considered specifically grown, since enemies in those subtypes all look identical to one another, with possibly minor differences.

* "G" is also Gordon Freeman, going with this theory. When G says (In the House of the Dead 4 Special) "I have found the Source." He's talking about the source for the Xen Portals (Not the Source Engine, although humorous), and how they were able to operate. Before the original House of the Dead, G was Gordon Freeman, and after the Black Mesa Incident, G-man (Goldman), after Gordon (G) accepted his offer, thrusted Gordon into the enlisting area of the AMS. Someway, somehow, Gordon had a feeling to keep shut about his true self, and just go along with the training. He does not have to do so for long, as his name, bio, and even Blood Type are cleared and held Top Secret by the AMS. Gordon gives himself a clean-shave, and cue the events of the House of the Dead series under the name 'G'. After HotD 4, 'G' is visited by Goldman/G-Man once more, and is thrust into the world of ''VideoGame/HalfLife2''. Cue the events of ''Half-Life 2'' and its episodes, and you have a confused and nearly mentally-unstable G, unsure of who to trust and what to believe, but he is certain of one thing, and one thing only: These two worlds are connected somehow. G-Man is involved in both, but why? How? Gordon constantly ponders such things, yet still keeps on shooting at Combine Soldiers...

[[WMG:There was an extended ending planned for HoTD 3.]]
In ''HoTD 3'', there are two unused tracks in the soundtrack titled "The First Impression" and "At The End of The Fight" (You can listem to them [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opgHecbOE14 here]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQCH-kKht4k here]].) While the former was used as the menu theme in the [=PS3=] release, the latter track remains unused. My theory is that it was originally going to be for an extended ending that was unlocked if you got at least a B or A rank on all the chapters, and achieved the standard or mystery man ending (Since the bad or zombie in car endings wouldn't tie in well), and the cutscene would be of Rogan reuniting with Sofie and possibly a few more post-final boss stuff to fit the two minute song in. They probably either scrapped it due to time constraints or it being too long compared to other cutscenes in the game. The way the aforementioned song sounds really made me think what they could have done with it.
