    I don't see anything in your post that directly said Valve based GMan off of Oppenheimer.

    What? Freon assumed that Oppenheimer was an actor/model.

    Oppenheimer being GMan is just my theory.

    Oh yeah right, I can totally see where I said Valve used Oppenhemier as an actor/model in my post... You fail again mate :p
    I didn't think it was necessary to explain myself further the first time, but since you're not the sharpest tool of the shed, I meant contemporary models or actors. Like Jamil Mullen for Alyx Vance.

    Also, I believe anybody begining a sentence with "It's pretty obvious that" followed by wild theories should be shot :rolleyes:

    Why did you find the need to bring that up though? It's irrelevant to my post. Yes certain characters are based on models, actors and homeless people. But then again Dr. Breen is named after a city in 'Aeon Flux' and the screens around C17 are remnisant of the telescreen from 1984. There are alot of references in HL2. But we already know that. There's no need to mention it again.

    But if you read Raising the Bar you'll see that Gordon and GMan do not have real world counterparts in the book.

    I think that that is quite significant. Especially considering GMans resemblence to Oppenheimer and Oppenheimers background.

    It's believed that Gman has a scientific background. Afterall he was the benefactor for Black Mesa. He has also been seen playing with nuclear warheads within Black Mesa. That itself could be an 'in' joke for the people that know Gman could possibly be Oppenheimer.

    Are you talking to me? And if so what's your point? I already know that about Oppenheimer. I posted the link for christs sake.

    :lol: Maybe the fact that Oppenheimer worked on the NUCLEAR BOMB and not TRANSDIMENSIONAL TRAVEL.

    Yes I KNOW that. What the ****? Do you think I didn't read my own reference material?

    The Manhatten project and the Philadelphia experiment are two very different things. I was merely stating that after he finished up work on the MP he could have been reassigned to the PE.

    You made a link between Oppenheimer and the Philadelphia experiment when there's actually not valid link even in the info you posted.

    Ok, this is possibly the worst debate to not involve Worf in BuF's history, so let's bring it back to the basics. Does Oppenheimer look like the G-man?

    No.

    There is a certain resemblance, but only because both Oppenheimer is a very average-looking person and could be said to look like a lot of people. I expect you could find loads of similar G-man lookalikes.
