How they bit it

Poor old Eli gets the back of his head sucked out by an Advisor (Half-Life’s most mysterious and dastardly alien assholes) while trying to protect his daughter Alyx.


Why they deserved to die

Because if he’d just curbed his peg-legged, pipe-wielding heroics for 34 seconds he, Alyx and Gordon would have been saved by DOG. And, more crucially for him, the contents of his tasty brains would be nestling safely in the back of his head, rather than being digested in some fat-assed grub thingy’s stomach.

Gets so involved in a shootout as he’s hanging out of his vehicle, he fails to notice a truck approaching in the opposite direction. Said truck promptly shut-uppas the wiseguy’s face for good.

Why they deserved to die

For not listening to his teacher in grade school. The first lesson on any well run field trip is keep all your appendages inside the vehicle at all times.
