Should each game in the series have its own page as opposed to a redirect?

Well, yes. Especially because huge pages become impossible to edit in the long run.

In fact, individual games should go in the Video Game/ namespace instead of Main (which is now reserved only for tropes, hence the lots of movings you're seeing these days)

not exactly about any particular trope, but does anybody have any theories on how/why, the awesome vortiguants had the ability to combat the G-man? Ever since that little cutscene in episode 1, I have had a newfound love for the vortiguants power!

Presumably that's part of what gets revealed in Episode 3. Whenever that happens. If you want to discuss it, we have the WMG page.

Asking before adding, but which one would be the Insistent Terminology here? The Gravity Gun or the "Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator"?

"ZPEFM". Everyone calls it the Gravity Gun except for the literal-minded, which is what the trope is about.

Removed this:

  • Laser-Guided Karma: Implied for Breen. Sell out the human race for your own profit, then try to split for greener pastures once Gordon Freeman arrives? Well, I hope you were telling the truth all those times you were praising the Combine, because now you're one of them.

Unless I'm very badly mistaken, Breen died at the end of Half-Life 2 when Gordon destroyed the Dark Energy portal. Sure, he was headed for a "host body" as part of his rescue deal, but that didn't actually happen.

Very true, i was thinking very much the same thing when i read that the first time... And yet, There is always the possibility.

Since Natter is frowned upon (more than normally, I mean) on Trivia pages, I'm gonna say right here that the arcade game linked on Half-Life looks frikkin awesome, and having those Combine player models in Garrys Mod would be the most epic thing ever. Anyone agree?

Use the forums for that, please...

WHY, when I search for Half-Life and click the link, does it treat it as if I've pressed the "Random Page" button? For the love of dog, it sent me to "Betty and Veronica"!

The entire line is present in the game files, but in the actual game it's cut off after "No regrets, Mr. Freeman" for some reason.

Here's the full version.

gonna mark half life episode 3 down for devlopement hell. I mean come on. its been what two years since any updates?

Half-Life's story section is great, no doubt about it. But uh... why does this say nothing about Half-Life 2 (and Episodes) story in the intro bit? They further the plot just a bit more (and by a bit, I mean about 80% of the plot is in them). Not making sense to me.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
