Last month, I reported on Half-Life series writer and former Valve employee, Marc Laidlaw, saying that Half-Life 3 would have probably not been the end of our favourite crowbar-wielding protagonist, Gordon Freeman.
As we all know, there has been no official word of Half-Life 2: Episode 3 or Half-Life 3 and many of us gamers have begun to believe that the game will never happen.

What do you think about Marc Laidlaw’s fan-fiction piece and how do you think the Half-Life story will (or would have) ended? Let us know in the comment section below.
