YMMV / Half-Life: Full Life Consequences

In the machinimas:

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: In the Djy version, the Dark Man is the same person as revived Gordon Freeman. In the Gaz version, they're two separate people.
  • Awesome Music: "Chateau" from The Matrix (Djy 1991 version) or "Gonna Fly Now" from Rocky III (Gaz version) during the Grand Finale.
    • Not to mention Djy 1991's excellent use of "A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics" from A Beautiful Mind in their final scene.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Plenty in the original writings, but the machinimas take this trope to extremes.
    • In the Djy 1991 adaptation of Free Man, they added in a scene that lasts from 6:12 to 11:38, where they deviate from the original, making John Freeman into a badass god figure by showing him fighting through a number of memetastic locales. While it was praised by some viewers, others felt that it added nothing to the video.
      • Within that segment, while most of the fighting was more or less in line with the rest of the story and John Freeman's larger-than-life image, there is an indisputable BLAM when the G-Man, who has a Hitler mustache, shows up and kicks John Freeman into the sky, before turning into Saxton Hale. John Freeman goes flying over various locales from assorted Source-based games such as cp_gravelpit, ctf_convoy_v2 and gm_bigcity, ultimately landing in GLaDOS's main chamber, where John Freeman gets into a one-sided argument with her, blows her up and arrives back at the Citadel just in time to see the humens at safe place before the Citadel explods.
      • "the countrysides were nice and the plants were singing and the birds and the sun was almost down from the top of the sky."
  • Colbert Bump: Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time favourited the Djy 1991 video. They would.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The DJY adaptation of Hero Beggining manages to make Henry Freeman's Mom's death HILARIOUS.
  • Memetic Badass: John Freeman. He can pick up and throw a train, honest!
  • Narm: Several otherwise well-done bits in Gaz 6231's Free Man film are ruined by the in-game death reports.
    • "I know bro but you are hero" John Freeman said back to comfart Gordon.
  • Special Effect Failure: The portals in the Gaz 6321 version are a dumpster and a truck.
  • Tear Jerker: Gaz 6231's take on the death of Gordon Freeman. The music just makes the scene work.
