Not that I do, in fact if anything I'd love nothing more than to go to the doctors, get a blood test and have the doc spin around and say "Oh my god, this' huge! Your father is actually Gordon Freeman!"

But anyway... It's just weird because big names like Mario, Sonic, Master Chief, Crash Bandicoot, even Snake and Link, seem to have a lot of fanbases and anti-fanbases... yet Freeman, seems to be loved by all, and I haven't really seen a negative word about the character.

I guess it's not that weird though, I mean c'mon, he DOES know G-Man. <3

Gordon freeman is pretty much the embodiment of a hero.

Just an ordinary dude, doing his work, and then bam. He's forced to rise above all that junk, and fight for the world.

And he doesn't wear tights, tunics, or overalls icon_wink.gif

How can you hate someone who barely exists. Gordan Freeman doesn't speak, is never seen (in-game at least) and the only actions he ever makes are those of the person playing the game. Making fun of Gordan Freeman would be like making fun of yourself.

^ That's actually a very good answer, but there are emo's who play the game and still love Freeman.

Hey, if anyone could get their hands on that HEV suit, a crowbar and a girl sidekick nobody would hate them. Not including cosplay though...

Who wouldn't.

And who doesn't hate Gordon.
He was just a man working for an underground science facility, and then gotta kill some alien bitches. Who doesn't like that...

Freeman is the player. That's all he is. He's not really a character at all.

Anti-fanbase? For Gordon Freeman? Who would stoop to such a dismal, evil level of existence?!

Yeah I have to admit, he is sexy looking, and I'm in no place to judge because I havent played any of his Games yet (damn you half life being constantly sold out!!!)

Aside from a couple of comments here and there, so is the Master Chief, really. But a lot of people love and hate him too. o.o

I wear glasses and, if I could get a pair like his I would definitely seize the opportunity. Not that I'd wear them really, as I would expect them to look like ass on me. But hey, they work for him.

P.S. Gordon Freeman is a BAMF.

He is the Perfect Symbol for Revolution and is the most bad ass character that everyone wants to be... there is no way some one can hate that..
