Don't worry, Daehawk, I'm sure they will have a sequel to sell which may or may not reveal a few details.  Let's hope it doesn't take quite as long.

That said, I can honestly not even fathom the kind of experience games will provide in 2011.

Yea the ending for HL2 is right up there with Halo 2 in the "WTF...you gotta be kidding me" territory. I can see having a setup for a sequal but give people  a good satisfying ending for the game they just finished. A cliff-hanger/keep you guessing ending is okay for a a weekly TV show but not for a game series were it might be several years till the next installment comes out.

Wow.  I liked it!

I thought it was just as ambiguous as the ending to the original Half-Life.

I like the ending too.  Sure, it leaves some things unanswered, but the main story is complete.  The rest is the kind of thing they might deal with in an expansion or something like that.

It reminded me of the way my friends and I made fun of the end of original Doom.  A screen flashing "Congratulations!  You win! Now go buy more Doom!"

The ending was very interesting and some cool effects but it surprised me. I didn't get the feeling I had finished my job if you know what I mean (no spoilers). It felt like I was just about to head into a new NEAT level and then SCHREECH, valve put on the breaks and ended the game.

Now we wait another freaking 5 to 6 years to find out what the combine is all about. IM 34, thats means I will be freakin 40 when the next game comes out.

Couldn't they just use the same engine and have a 2.4 in a year or two?

I firmly believe that even Valve has no clue what the ending ment.

I posted this in the OO thread as well, but I liked it, a lot.  It's the Two Towers of these games.  Freeman is just a pawn in an obviously much larger war in the Universe.  His job was done, he was about to be killed by the explosion (how was he going to get back down anyway?) so they intervened again.  I don't think it'll be as long until the next game.  They have a great engine now so why not just make another game with it?  That's my hope anyway.

So, if Freeman was just about to be killed by that explosion, then that means Alex (spelling?) bought it ... Thats too bad, She was my favorite NPC in the game.

I didn't care for the ending, needed more development with Alex and didn't give a closure type feel for ending an otherwise stellar game.

 That said it does leave all the threads open for a sequel and its doubtful that anyone is killed although transportation to another dimension/combine's home planet is a definite possibility.
