"The past times"






"No Prospects"

Episode Number(s)


"The past times" is the ninth part of a special set of episodes for City 17 Street which takes the perspective of Gordon Freeman. However taking inspiration from the famous webcomic Concerned: The Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman, Gordon Freeman's depiction in the specials is more comedic and taken less seriously than his journey in Half-Life 2.

The specials were originally written to bridge a weekly gap between the episodes "Chain Reactions" and "The Mission", but where later bundled as part of the fourth series of the "Half-Life" era.


Waiting for Judith to finish up her portal experiment, Gordon decides to have flashbacks to his days at Black Mesa prior to the incident. Cutting to when he received his training at the Hazard Course, he is unsuccessful several time when he accidentally trips while doing jumps and when using the launch pad goes up in the air and hits his head off a catwalk.

Finally reaching the end of the hazard course, he spots the mysterious giant green frog stalking him. Gordon attacks it, but finds a scientist in it's place. A security guard attempts to shoot Gordon for "hurting" a scientist, forcing Gordon to activate the cheat code "Impulse 101" in order to get all his weapons and goes on a massive shootout to escape. After the massacre, he shoots the hologram to eliminate the remaining "witness", but is informed by it that it is not really there, much to Gordon's embarrassment.
