After nearly 13 years of waiting, Valve is finally giving us a new installment in the Half-Life franchise. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Half-Life: Alyx takes us back to City 17 and fills in the gap between the first two mainline Half-Life games. But what about everything else? Well, that's what we're here for; let's take a run down memory lane with the entire story of the Half-Life (and Portal) universe!
0:00 Intro
0:36 Black Mesa & Aperture Origins
0:58 GLaDOS Awakens (Portal 2: Lab Rat)
1:35 The Morning of May 16th (Black Mesa/Half-Life Decay/Half-Life Blue Shift)
3:09 The Resonance Cascade and After (Decay/Black Mesa/Blue Shift/Half-Life Opposing Force)
10:18 The Seven Hour War (Half-Life 2)
11:22 Doug Rattmann's Plight (Portal 2: Lab Rat)
11:57 Chell is Tested (Portal)
13:08 Rattmann Helps Again (Portal 2: Lab Rat)
13:47 Gordon's Second Assignment (Half-Life 2)
20:13 Gordon and Alyx's Return to the Citadel (Half-Life 2: Episode 1)
22:04 The White Forest Operation (Half-Life 2: Episode 2)
27:07 Chell Awakens in the Far Future (Portal 2)
32:51 Outro

Please *avoid posting* Half-Life: Alyx spoilers. I know it's exciting having new information on the story, but most folks watching this video are doing so _BEFORE_ playing the new game. Have some respect for their playthroughs and let them enjoy something they've probably waited over a decade for.

I have played all the games except HL:Alyx, but wow the story is complex. Like something out of the X-Files, but on steriods... And now you convinced me to invest in a VR set and play the damn game...

Why did you not like half life Alyx? I mean I can understand how people would say valve is just stalling, but I thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay and story, although I would rather have it be standalone

By the way, in old aperture you would've heard an argument between Cave Johnson and Caroline about being turned into GLaDOS. But they removed it because it sounded more like Caroline was being sexually harassed or assaulted.

A super small correction. Gordon Freeman is captured almost the same time as Barney gets caught in the reflux. Barney during one of his teleportations can see the military drag Gordon to be squished in the compactor.

Because its the combine. And against an overwhelming force you tend to use guerilla warfare. You don't exactly send your 100 troops to fight an army with 100000 troops. You will lose. But if you send 10 troops to destroy major supply lines, and maybe a few assassinations, its no longer 100 troops vs 100000 troops. Its 100 troops vs a severely crippled 100000 troops. Not easy, as evident by the fact gordon did not 100% beat the combine, but its doable.

But like can we talk about the genius of Portal 2s ending, like the song that the turrets sing literally being just Glados saying how much she loves Chell, proving she didn’t actually delete Caroline but made it Italian because she’s too petty to say it in a language Chell actually understands
