While many jokes about video games boil down to pointing out how weird the mechanics would be if translated to real life, Freeman's Mind stands head and shoulders above those jokes. Ross Scott doesn't simply point out how insane Black Mesa is, he provides consistent and clever explanations for what he's seeing. The Eternal Engine
? Built to use excess funding and prevent a bidding war. Alien soldiers wear revealing body armor? We're being invaded by extra-dimensional strippers. No OSHA Compliance
? Cost-cutting and discount construction. Bizarre quantities of munitions just lying around? Black Mesa is a James Bond villain company. Every episode has at least one brilliantly funny moment to make you laugh as you watch an egomaniacal physicist gradually become more and more psychotic and it ranks among the best video game parodies and machinimas ever.
