Every company files trademarks and copyrights in advance. Doesn't mean anything will ever come out of it

That happened a lot when people realized they could- one guy tried it but it went to court and he had to hand it over because he was clearly doing it just for that purpose.

I'd build my own Half Life 3! And it would be crap since I know nothing about coding! I don't know where I'm going with this anymore...

Even if you did that, I'm guessing the courts would hand it over to Valve. They can establish prior interest with the brand for more than a decade, while you'd probably have difficulty giving a plausible excuse for adding the "3" to the end when you have no prior works.
