Best Half-Life Characters

The Top Ten
Gordon Freeman Dr. Gordon Freeman is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Half-Life video game series, created by Gabe Newell and designed by Newell and Marc Laidlaw of Valve Corporation.

The best character out of the entire Half Life series! You play as him! If there was no Gordon Freeman, you wouldn't be playing any of that amazing Half Life 2! You wouldn't be able to play Half Life without him. Better than Barney, Alyx, or Dr. Breen, because they have their own problems! Alyx relies too much on the player (you, Gordon Freeman) to get things done "her way". Barney is mean and sarcastic, he acts like he knows everything. Dr. Breen is needy. He acts like he can't get anything done without you, or you are the key to all of his success. As if he has had any success...

The protagonist of the Half-Life video game series. Gordon, or you, the player, is a real cool guy. He fights soldiers, crazy alien monsters, and bacteria generated bugs. I vote for Gordon Freeman because he has the most background story in the entire game series.

Cool dude, I guess. He's stealthy, strong, smart, and quick. That's really all you need during a government collapse.

This guy is not as chill as characters such as Alyx, but he is pretty calm during such a dreadful thing happening around him.

Alyx Vance
Barney Calhoun

I have reasons for Barney Calhoun being my favorite character. One, he is so sarcastic that he's funny! Two, he is an important character in the story of Half Life 2. Three, he is very smart and knows all about the lab that you start in. Four, he's the funnest person during the entire apocalypse! I mean, who would actually take their time during the apocalypse to be sarcastic, or even funny to someone! Five, he's pretty chill. I think that if smart people were to vote on this list, Barney Calhoun would be number one!

He's my favorite character! I love his sarcasm, unlike my friends who think he can be kind of mean. I think he is one of the more sophisticated secondary characters in Half Life 2.

When I think of Barney Calhoun, I think of a total jerk who has nothing better to do than make fun of you for being slow at doing things.

I can't tell if this guy is just pretending to be an ass or actually is an ass. I think it's a mix of both, but more of the second one.

G-man

This guy is mysterious and creepy in a pretty cool way

He should be number 1

How the hell is Gorden freman number 1?

Dr. Breen
D0G

He a cool robot he friendly and he is smart

Lamarr

Adrian Shephard

He didn't cause the combine to come, Gordon did. Adrian did no wrong and saved the world from being terraformed. Gordon caused the Black Mesa disaster which led the combine to earth.

There is not much about him but he survives messed up stuff

His survival skills, in my opinion, surpass those of Freeman or Calhoun, even though those two do not fall short either

Dr. Kleiner

Dr. Kleiner is a cool guy he scientist from black mesa and he survive and the story would not be the same without the guy

Father Grigori

Very interesting character, seen all his friends and beloved ones turn into monsters and now he spends his last days giving them their peace.

Father grigori is the best most charismatic character and if you don't like him I WILL kill you

He is a creepy fat guy but he ends up being cooler than u think

Deadass the most interesting character
