i just wanted to dick around with coloring and draw gordon so i made this.
i guess i shouldn’t be surprised that in games with names like “half life” and “fallout” your player character spends a lot of time rubbing their face against radioactive sludge, but even so, it’s bending my suspension of disbelief when gordon can swim around COMPLETELY SUBMERGED in glowing green fresh-out-of-the-reactor death-slime, then get out, slap a few bandaids on, and be completely fine. HIS SUIT DOES NOT EVEN HAVE A HELMET.
though it probably wouldn’t be a very fun game if, after walking around in a reactor/the wasteland for a few minutes, your character would suddenly start feeling nauseous and then would vomit/shit continuously until they died shortly after. even so i hope alyx isn’t hoping to have any of gordon’s children (and am i the only one who thinks their shoehorned-in relationship is CREEPY AS HELL, stasis or not???). that… probably wouldn’t end well. at least procreating isn’t something frank needs to worry about.
ps: otherkin dolphin gordon is the only gordon for me nobody can convince me it’s not canon
