In the level with the airboat, I was haulin' ass down the river... I could swear from a distance I saw the G-man standing on the deck of this building off in the distance, but when I got to the spot where he was standing, there was nothing there but 2 monsters... has anyone else seen that?

It's bugging the hell out of me cause I'm not sure if I saw it or not... :(

I saw him too. I didn't notice him until my sister yelled "It's the G-Man! Go get that bastard!"


I went to go get him and yeah, there was nothing there.

I've also seen him at the spot where you go up into the rafters and move the barrel, releasing the hoisted supplies. I think it was the red barn. He was standing there watching Gordon pull up. He walks into the barn and when you get up there he is gone and two of the zombies are there instead.

It's pretty cool how they put him in the game like this. I think they put him in the game to give you clues... I was at the area where the helicopter lifts off its pad and drops all these bombs around you... and i had unlocked the one gate and was wondering around trying to figure out what to do... then I saw a figure on the other side where there were more gates... He looked at me... then turned around and walked off. Then I went to go find him and he was gone, but then I see what I need to do to unlock the next gate...

I think he is put in the game to give you clues as to where to go... kind of like those hl logos that are all around that tell you where nice little caches of supplies are. Seeing him stand there and just look at you can be so creepy, he's like a ghost. This game has been really fun with these little touches added in!

Crazy! Now I know what to do on my next run through HL2 on the hardest difficulty setting. Anyone know of any other places I should look for the gman? They made it so obvious in the first HL but I hadn't seen any odd gman appearances at all in HL2 before seeing that pic.

Also when you first make it to Dr. Kleiner's Lab, flip around on the security monitor that Barney hangs out around. You'll see him a few times on the screen. I know I saw him one other time, but I can't remember where now!

I think there was some exploding barrels you could shoot which would cause it to fall. Nothing spectacular, just ammo health etc.
Anywhere with that lambda symbol painted theres goodies hidden somewhere close.

I've seen the G-Man talking to the guy that gives you the rocket launcher from a distance. There's this house (while you're on the buggy) that when you go in (quietly enough) you'll catch a combine looking through some binoculars. Look in them and you'll see him talking (I swear he's making a deal).

Nowhere else did I see anybody catch this encounter.

What are u talking about, chimney ??? Oh and the gman is on the tv in the train car w/ the vorinant and the human. The tv turns off almost as soon as u jump down in there though. Its near the beginning of the game, like u only have a pistol.

Possible spoiler for this dude ^^



















As you're sailing down the river, on the right you'll see two large chimney's (industrial), and one of them falls down and smashes in front of you. It's a sight to behold.

You can climb up to the attic up there and theres a barrel thats stuck in the crank. Just pull it out and the box falls. just ammo in health in there though :p

They are called smoke stacks for future referance. ;)

I JUST saw that about an hour ago in the game. I have no idea where that is though. Thankfully, you took a picture so I can analyze.

The G-Man was hidden all over the place in the first half-life and he is scattered about the second one too.

Its yours, its the same one - after you park it in the garage, the combine take it. You see them towing it away on one of their ships, on the level after the lighthouse iirc.

The game just seem chock full of cool little moments like the ones you guys are describing. I also saw the G man standing next to the red barrel off in the distance as in one of the screen shots posted. It was kind of like a glimpse.. and then I looked again and he was gone, and I thought maybe I was just seeing things or something.

I lost count of the number of times I said "that was f$@^ing cool" out loud to nobody in particular. I would have designed some things differently, but over all, totally badass.

In the US, we call it a chimney if it's in your house. When it's industrial, we call it a smoke stack.

In case anyone wants to see another good Smoke Stack collapsing scene go watch(That is if you can find it.), Hooper with Burt Reynolds and Jan Michael Vincent.
