Gabe Newell Promises Gordon Freeman Won't Change
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

Computer and Video Games has posted some new comments from Valve Software's Gabe Newell about the iconic Gordon Freeman, protagonist of the popular Half-Life series. The developer promised that any new games featuring Freeman would remain true to the character's roots.

When Edge asked Newell if he wanted to give Freeman a greater sense of 'embodiment', he said:

"We haven't had a reason to change that. Most of what I've seen to date has been gimmicky and is entertaining for just a minute or so."

When asked if he'd consider giving Freeman a voice (he's been mute in every Half-Life so far) - he added:

"We're not philosophically opposed to this, but we don't have any good reasons to do it. Right now making your companions more interesting and compelling seems a more fruitful avenue to explore."
