    Okay some of you guys might know this but theres competition on GameSpot and it has reached semi finals, would be awesome if you guys voted for Gordon, as hes our only Valve character in the tourney and hes up against 3 nintendo characters. Spread the word and vote guys. Also vote samus to get Mario out of the way.

    Ah, remember this, already voted there a few rounds ago (Gordon for sure).

    But it doesnt look good for him, hope things will change.

    Well, I wouldn't vote for him as he's just an image of who the players is supposed to be. He has no personality or backstory and he's totally mute. He's not a real character.

    But then again, Link is exactly the same. So I'll throw Gordon a vote.

    Yeah but link and mario save girls all the time, gordon is saving the world :D its more like fanbase tournament thing to be honest, and since link has a massive fanbase this will be hard for Gordon.

    Sure I have played the games, read up on them, etc. I know the story, but not a lot is directly related to Gordon. All we know about him before the first game starts is that he's a physicist. Then he just takes part in an accident and escapes, then he's left out of the story for many years until he returns and helps people. Sure, he becomes more of an important character in HL2, but then we're hardly talking about backstory anymore, are we... The story of the HL games may be very good and rather elaborate, but the story of Gordon is not.

    EDIT: All right, I read all of the wiki article anyway, which proved me wrong.

    Gordon needs to make the final and face Mario, that would be a just final in my honest opinion. He's down by 0.7%
