hello.

just signed up today so this is my first post.


i noticed a while ago that every half-life game either begins or ends on a train (or sometimes both.) execption being oposing force but that wasnt made by valve but it did start and end on an osprey and had a train near the begining

half-life 1: starts and ends on train, ok its a monorail but it is still runs on rails so is a form of train)

blue shift: begins on train

hl2: begins and ends on a train

episode 1: ends on a train

and episode 2 begins on a train

after looking around he internet it seems that nobody else has noticed this. exept mabie this article from trains in games http://www.trainsing...lflife2episode2

Hi Dan, welcome to HLFallout.

Just a warning, most of the community is very hostile to newcomers. But once you settle in here it's a good forum.

Yes Valve seem to be into trains and in fact many would argue the best level they ever created was 'on a rail' from HL1.

Its not really a major plot point or anything. Its just a nice way of making an introduction or exit to a game and since the first game's intro went down so well i think they just continued along those lines for the next games, probably for nostalgia's sake.

Just rest assured the start of episode 3 won't be on a train. :so

Blue Shift wasn't made by valve?
I thought Gearbox made it.

Hay Dan. Welcome.

Your perceptions seem to proceed you, as we have already noticed this.

It's probably metaphoric but I'm too busy eating pie and beating the crap out of young children to bother working it out right now.

Welcome.

it could be a whole metaphore

the train could represent gordon's life is in constant motion, each person/town is nothing more than passing memory, ultimately reaching his final destination (ie death)

Which in a way, you could say that gordon freeman is really just dreaming a fantastic journey through a dark and mysterious world before he sucums to a terminal desease.
