YMMV / Half-Life: Full Life Consequences

  • Cliché Storm: From the humens rising up to fight the combines to the Dark Man supposedly being Gordon Freeman, to John Freeman sacrificing himself to save the humens...
  • Crazy Awesome: John Freeman. He's the most insane character in the fic and kills far more powerful foes with nothing but a wepon. The machinima adds to this by having do things such as picking up a train and tossing it!
  • Ear Worm: WEPON! WEPON! WEWEPON PON WEPONWEPON!
  • Fanon: QuarterLife: Origin of Doom, a FanFiction.net-published story, was written to tie Quarter-Life: Halfway To Destruction to Full Life Consequences as a prequel. Because it was written after the fact, much foreshadowing of the events of Hero Beggining occurs in this story.
  • Funny Moments: Many, but special mention must go to "BECAUSE YOU ARE HEADCRAB ZOMBIE".
    • but this is our house :(
    • "DARKMAN YOU WILL SUFFAR!"
    • "Combine came and put science in me and made me live and strong and big now!"
    • The science flew off Gordon Freeman's face.
    • and the pants were dead
    • "I know bro but you are hero" John Freeman said back to comfart Gordon." In Djy's vid, the actual fart during that line and the face John does is priceless!
    • "I'll get you back evil boss!" John Freeman yelled at the top of lungs.
  • Heartwarming Moment - "And it gave them hop!"
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Zombie goasts becomes more hilarious when you watch Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, specifically, episode 8's first segment "...Of the Dead" features... Zombified Ghosts.
    • At some point during Free Man, John Freeman goes on killing Combines with bear hands! (This was even noted with a clever Visual Pun on Djy1991's machinima) Some years later, a new pair of "boxing gloves" for the Heavy were added into Team Fortress 2: They are a pair of severed bear hands!
  • Memetic Mutation: Several lines, such as the quotes on the quotes page.
  • Moment of Awesome: "I have to kill fast and bullets too slow!"
  • Narm Charm - look at all the moments of Awesome- and the tear-jerkers, for that matter.
    John Freeman: Gordon Freeman is now these hands... i must kill the next boss and live up to full-life consequences!
    John Freeman: These birds don't have to see Gordon Freeman yet. It's not time.
    John Freeman: I WILL KILL THE BOSS AND GORDON FREEMAN WILL BE HAPPY SOUL!
  • So Bad, It's Good - Djy1991's machinima takes this trope to "So Bad Its Awesome"
  • Tear Jerker - John Freeman, Saver of Humens
    • Gordon Freeman's really actually final last death.

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 (Djy1991 version) or "Gonna Fly Now" from Rocky III (Gaz version) during the Grand Finale.
    • Not to mention Djy1991'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 Djy1991 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 Djy1991 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!
  • Memetic Mutation: A moment from "Free Man" became one of the more popular GIF images used when saying "WAT."
  • Narm: Several otherwise well-done bits in Gaz6231'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 Gaz6321 version are a dumpster and a truck.
  • Tear Jerker: Gaz6231's take on the death of Gordon Freeman. The music just makes the scene work.
