I have never wished I was taking gameplay footage more than I do now.  I killed the Nihilanth right as I got teleported, was running around confused like, "WHY DOES THE ROOM SOUND LIKE IT'S ABOUT TO EXPLODE???", then got killed by a controller RIGHT as the Nihilanth death animation finished.  I really wish I hadn't hit a button, and had just let the bad ending play out.  G-Man saying his big speech to Gordon's corpse and then going through the trouble of sending him to the room of alien grunts because he was dead and couldn't go through the portal is just...peak comedy.

(Yes, I did go back and finish the game properly after that.  I've now beaten it on hard!  🎉)

(Clip of a Youtube video) So, I saw people speculating that the hideout in Half-Life Alyx's quarantine zone belonged to Barney, and I don't really see that. But I was watching a playthrough (sadly I don't have a VR headset or a machine that could run HLA), and I DO think he's in the game! Watch the Metrocop that Olga passes. He does this weird little jaunty walk when he goes by her, with his face averted, and then adopts a different stance from the other CPs. This takes place right next to a mi…
