    Think about it.

    The Black Mesa Incedent happened when he was 27- Alyx just a baby.

    Gordon meets alyx as an adult. Making gordon in his mid-40's, right?


    Edit: Oh boy, my typo made a new fad. T_T

    No, he was put into stasis, so he didn't age at all.

    Math time.

    Since it was 13 years apparently. Alyx was just a baby, this would make 0-1.
    Making her 13-14. This would not make sense, she would at least be late-teens to early-20s

    Stasis

    Time passes as normal in reality, but is instantaneous for you.

    Alyx was a baby when the Resonance Cascade occurred
    Play episode 2, G-man says, "When I plucked her from Black Mesa..."

    What?

    You can't call babies "her" or something? I don't see your point or how that supports it

    She was a baby.

    Not only was there a picture of her in Gordon's locker, but remember the picture at Black Mesa East? It was Alyx as a baby, taken before the Resonance Cascade.

    Here's a nifty little diagram:


    As we know, time is relative and nonlinear. This means that it bends and can be bent. The diagram is actually a very bad example, because it makes it seem as if we're bending reality, but we are, in fact, simply moving two points closer to each other. The "reality loop" represents the actual passing of time, whereas the "point of stasis" represents the bridge between two times. We can use this point of stasis to go from earlier time to later time faster than reality. If you don't get it, watch Deja Vu. They have a very good analogy in it.

    He was put into interdimensional stasis, as others have said.

    HL2 takes place right now, not in the future, HL1 was early-mid 90s.

    Wrong.

    "Most of the game is set in a remote desert area of New Mexico in the Black Mesa Research Facility, a fictional complex that bears many similarities to both the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Area 51, between the years 2000 and 2009."

    All the personnel's families lived in the Black Mesa complex, to ensure that nothing was leaked to the outside world.

    I think. I remember hearing/reading that somewhere

    Such a bad diagram that it sounds like you masturbated to that shitty book 'A wrinkle in time'.

    The diagram is used as a representation, and loops happen to work well when used with time. But no, A Wrinkle In Time was total bullshit.

    I think Eli's line sums it up best for how old Gordon is age-wise in HL2:

    "My god you haven't changed one iota! How do you do it?"

    Isn't Half-Life 2 set in mid-Cold War era (1950s-1990s) USSR? I've always thought the game was set in the 1950s.

    ... wut.

    in the manual for Half Life, it has a letter to Gordon saying that he has been accepted into Black Mesa. the date read May somethingth, 200X, meaning it took place between 2000 and 2009.

    where the fuck did you come up with that?

    He plucked Gordon out of stasis, didn't he?

    And he probably plucked alot of people up the ass at Black Mesa.

    They need more Adrian in EP:3. Such a badass not used by G-man. Maybe he had his own battles that he was fighting during Gordon's statis or while he was fighting the Combine.
