Who is Gordon Freeman?
Dr Gordon Freeman is a nuclear physicist employed by Black Mesa and he takes part in top secret government sponsored experiments. Freeman and a group of scientists from the mentioned research facility accidentally open a portal into the far reaches of the galaxy, through which aliens will invade our world.
The main protagonist of the Half Life games, Gordon Freeman finds himself dragged into a battle for survival against the aliens and later, against the government, who tries to cover up the Black Mesa Incident.
Throughout the game, the untrained theoretical physicist manages to fight his way out of hostile situations despite overwhelming odds. Often, he has no backup, except the occasional security guards.
Freeman never speaks, as a means of further immersing the player in the character's role. There are also no mission briefings, all action being viewed through Gordon's eyes, the player having complete control over Gordon's actions at all times.
What separates Gordon Freeman from other games' heroes is that he is a scientist and thus an unlikely candidate for the hero type, when compared to classic heroes such as Duke Nukem, or modern soldiers such as Master Chief.
In 2009, Dr Gordon Freeman won the title of Greatest Video Game Hero of All Time

Gordon Freeman and Canadas StonehingeGordon Freeman really exists and yes, he's a scientist. Freeman discovered a 5000-year-old "Sun Temple" (a Stone Age calendar) that pre-dates Stonehenge. Actually, Canada's Stonehenge is 2,500 years older than England's Stonehenge! Doctor Freeman, now at his 80s, holds an M.A., a Ph.D. and a D.Phil.. He published over 500 papers on chemistry, physics, and various other subjects.

Large Hadron Collider Gordon FreemanIn 2008, we spotted Gordon Freeman at the Large Hadron Collider. "Gordon, you're needed in the test chamber! If you would be so good as to climb up and start the rotors, we can bring the antimass spectrometer up to 80% and hold it there until the carrier arrives."
The Large Hadron Collider is the world's largest and most complex energy particle accelerator. While designed to provide answers for some of the most fundamental questions in physics, a lot of people see it as a device with the capability to create a world-ending black hole. At September 10, 2008, CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) successfully fired the first protons in the 27 km (17 miles) tunnel circuit. Fortunately for us, no resonance cascade resulted from the first experiment.
Should we prepare for *unforeseen consequences*, Doctor Freeman? At least if Gordon's there, we know there's someone to take care of a potential alien infestation... Although it's the G-Man that should make us worry!

Did You Know?
So, Who is Gordon Freeman?"Who the hell is Gordon Freeman?! Is everyone supposed to just *know* who this guy is? Maybe he thinks he's so cool and so famous that his picture/caption needs no explanation. Newsflash: I read several different news sources daily, in different media, am well-traveled, well-read, well-educated and I've never heard of the guy." (By Anonymous on Sep 7, 2008).
