Drinking Game / Freeman's Mind

Freeman's Mind has so many Running Gags, Brick Jokes, and Callbacks, that any drinking game based around them is sure to cause alcohol poisoning. Here's the playlist; proceed with extreme caution.

Note: Unless otherwise stated, all "dialogue" counts, including stingers, and all footage counts, including episodes 0, 10.5, 27, and 61.5, Freeman Across the Universe, and the alternate ending of 68.

  • Take a shot whenever Gordon displays a surprising amount of consideration for others.
    • Two if he takes it back or subverts it within five seconds.
  • Take a sip every time Gordon laments his lack of a grappling hook.

  • Take a sip whenever Gordon speaks a foreign language.
  • Take a sip whenever Gordon gets hypnotized by something.
    • Two sips if he says "Yes, Master…"
  • Take a sip whenever Gordon gets motion sickness.

  • Take a sip every time Gordon lampshades an unrealistic or mystifying aspect of the game's plot, design, AI, etc. For your own safety, you are advised to take very tiny sips for this one.
  • Take a sip every time Gordon ignores exposition.
    • Take another one when he doesn't understand what's going on purely because of this.

    • A sip if he only nearly does so.
    • Two shots if it was on purpose.
  • Take a shot every time the show uses footage from a game other than Half-Life: Source. Use your own judgement on whether to count Freeman Across the Universe, but if you do you are advised to take sips rather than shots.

  • Take a shot whenever Gordon mentions a mythical or supernatural creature.
    • Two whenever he seems to be legitimately confused as to whether said creature exists in reality.

    • Or whenever he makes believe that his shooting his enemies is supposed to be helpful to them in some way.
  • Take a sip every time Gordon engages in Dungeon Bypassing by use of noclip.
  • Take a shot whenever Gordon deliberately bypasses one of the game's weapons.
  • Take a shot whenever Gordon justifies an unrealistic trope by way of an External Retcon.
  • Take a sip every time Gordon mentions that he has no idea what's going on and/or what he's doing.
  • Advertisement:

  • Take a sip every time Gordon alludes to a Noodle Incident.
  • Take a sip every time Gordon engages in Percussive Maintenance (don't count metal grates, doors, or windows; you'll die).
    • Two if it works (you can count windows here if you want).
  • Take a small sip every time Freeman makes a Shout-Out that you recognize (don't count when he only refers to a work by name).
