Gordon Freeman. If it isn't Gordon Freeman, I don't know who it is.


is that the guy from Half Life? never understood the fuss with that series.


Yes he is. What breaks the mold with him is that unlike most of our FPS heroes, he was just a doctor (okay, physicist) whose one day in a day job just went horribly wrong. And his life just changes for the worst of it. Plus, one of the first modern-day titles to have complete character immersion.

I'd back everyone saying Gordon Freeman is the face of Steam, if not PC gaming in the 21st Century.

Five years ago, I lost 30,000 sandwiches and cakes in a blink of an eye. And GLaDOS just f___ing laughed.
She would not die. Now we know our crime was sin.

The everlasting blinking prompt. His heyday may've been in the Zork days, but he's still in top form... as much as I try to out-type it, I can't catch up.

PC are too great to have just one character represent them.

Windows Tan


Came in to say this ^

Makes sense to me that the OS should get the mascot since that is the foundation of the PC experience in a sense, its the OS that determines a PC's "looks" and "personality". For example, Tux is pretty much the generally accepted mascot for Linux.

If we insist on going with video game characters though, I'm going with BJ Blazcowicz. I do respect Doom Guy but BJ was blasting baddies on PC before Doom Guy was old enough to enlist in the Space Marine Corps.
