    G-Man definitely interacts with numerous people of the course of the series. He interacts with various humans and Vorts in Half-Life 1 & 2. He also kind of, you know, traps Adrian Shephard in a different dimension at the end of Opposing Force. Did you ever play that? Eli Vance also seems to be well aware of who he is, when Alyx gives him that cryptic psychic message from G-Man, and seemed to know that Gordon knew who he was. Did you forget THAT? As for the whole, G-Man is Gordon from the future thing, explain HL1's alternate ending, if you refuse to go with G-Man, he straight up sends you to a brutal death. Soooooooo...

    Songbird isn't DeWitt, its obviously that universe's version of the Big Daddy, seeing as Elizabeth would be a Little Sister.

    Actually, the Handymen are that universe's version of a Big Daddy.

    Some people belive that Tidus might actually be a descendant of the dream of Shuyin since as far as we know Dream Zanarkand has been excisting for 1000 years, while Tidus was like 17? I think.

    The G-man talks to people right away in the beginning of Half Life. Then the vortagons interact with him at the end of 2.

    Yeah I was going to say that. You see him talking to workers casually and then he is talking while Freeman is in the test chamber and the other workers respond to him.

    I feel Validated.

    Lol

    And since... *SPOILERS? FOR INFINITE* ... Songbird is most likely a "Big Daddy" (since the whole quantum physics thing gave Columbia a wealth of future technologies), that theory makes complete sense. Which brings me to Infinite's most disappointing aspect: not enough Songbird. :( And there never will be again... . ALSO, all these theories about FFVIII make the game look SUPER SWEEET. I've heard mixed opinions and may never get around to playing it, but the theories surrounding this game make it super enticing. And honestly, brings up the genius of the creators to spawn so many discussions so late in the game's life.

    Spoilers... I guess... Plus, Elizabeth is hellbent on eliminating all of the Bookers from the timelines. And in the main story, well you know watery grave for songbird...
  • Zepaw - June 12, 2014 11:55 a.m.

    I never noticed that connection, Elizabeth drowns both.

    Nice article, some great points to mull over, I find the pokemon one most compelling. I used to think about possible connections between mega man characters in the classic and x series, like maybe proto man was zero, or roll was zero, or bass was vile, or wily was still behind it all (he kind of was) but now with the zero series most of it was just making stuff up.

    As far as G-Man being a future or alternate Gordon, nope. Not buying it until Valve explicitly say so. FFX/X-2. Of course Tidus is an imperfect memory of Shuyin. Notice how Jecht never calls him by name in FFX? Plus in the final boss battle in FFX-2, you can actually hear Jecht taunting Shuyin for some reason. I though Square Enix had even said as such? Still doesn't stop Tidus from being a whiny douchebag though. I'd give anything for Square to retcon FFX and have Shuyin as the playable character (not main, as even though Tidus keeps bitching about it being "his story", it's blatantly Yuna who's the main character).
  • KeytoDestinyXIII - June 12, 2014 10:14 a.m.

    That isn't because of Tidus being a mess up. I mean that would make Jecht over 1000 years old if he was an original. The reason why no one calls Tidus by name is because you're allowed to change his name but the game features voice acting, so they had to come up with a work around for people who people who didn't use his canonical name. So he gets called things like, boy, you or just shouted at and it's supposed to be understood that people are talking to him. That's why we haven't been allowed to rename characters since X-2, because it's far too hard to do that in a game with voice acting where that person is going to be involved with the game the entire time. Or why sports games only refer to your character by their nickname because it's hard to pronounce every made up name in the universe. Or in Skyrim where they only refer to you as Dragonborn or her/he/you or skip that all together and just start talking. Also, it was his story, that was the point of the game. At any point in time he could have saod, eff Yuna or scree this I'll find a different way home. As whiny as he was, which gets better as the game goes on, if not for him a lot of the other characters would be at a stand still. Especially when it came to fighting against a religion they had been taught their entire lives. Or the raid to get Yuna back from Seymour. To be honest, it was everyone's story, they all had to choose where they went and what they did. You take Tidus out and most of them fall apart because they don't have that boost. And why would you want Shuyin? He was rage bent on killing all of them. So that'd be his solution, to just find a way to end everyone. Either that or you're asking for a game to take place 1000 years ago into the past which none of these other characters are even alive yet.

    These were great, but the Hero's Shade is almost definitely either Majora's Mask Link who probably spent the rest of his days wandering the Lost Woods without a fairy until eventually dying as an adult and becoming a Stalfos. They really drove home that you can't be messing around in the Lost Woods alone, But Stalfos MM Link would physically exist... Or, there is also a good chance he could be an adult Link who failed to defeat Ganon, creating the timeline with LttP, LBW and the original NES games. He would have the biggest motive for wanting to pass on his skills to a new Link and defeat Ganon, and the fact that he is from another timeline would explain why he only appears to Link. Still, definitely not Dark Link! Mainly because there's NO WAY Dark Link gets to be a golden wolf!
  • Drekner - February 24, 2014 11:34 a.m.

    It's always been to my belief that it was Adult Link from OOT who had failed to defeat Ganon, especially because I thought that Twilight Princess was a part of that timeline. I actually thought that the Hero's Shade was confirmed to be that said Link at some point, but I don't recall where that thought came from.

    Seriousy? No-one else. Okay. The Merchant from RE4 is really Wesker in disguise. First off, it explains why any character would speak with such a laughably ridiculous accent. Wesker needs Leon to succeed in what he's doing, because the Las Plagas group now pose a threat to him and Umbrella, as they have gained too much power. So he stays behind the scenes, arming Leon whenever he needs it to advance. He wears a huge overcoat, with gloves and a bandana to cover every part of his body except his eyes - his eyes being the only portion that Leon has never seen,a s they were hidden behind sunglasses. AND it explains both how Wesker was able to get into position to recover Krausers body so quickly after the incident (before the Coast Guard even managed to arrive), and why the Merchant can be shot and just get back up again, even after taking damage that would kill a LAs Plagas infectee. You also never see the Merchant directly after the cutscenes involving Wesker - he's always several rooms later. It explains why a character wielding this much military hardware for killing zombies never follows the action in RE5 and RE6 - in those ones, arming the heroes would have been directly against Weskers plan.

    Wow...this one just blew my mind...I want to believe...
  • lon3wolf2002 - December 17, 2013 1:21 p.m.

    Talking of G-Man appearing where he should not be, he once frightened the crap out of me. I was playing Counter Strike and all of a sudden a figure appeared in the room out of nowhere, after the obvious WTF and opening fire I realised the G-Man model had somehow managed to dump itself in my CS.

    I was hopin booker was tied to the songbird, but like many hopes i had for bioshock infinite, they were deflated.
