Kojima was doing the meta, unfiction, matpat game theory type of video games with hidden lore indicating a shared kojima-verse before the internet.
I.e. Kojima would add a bunch of layers of irony in his games. Like Dustcan said, Kojima doesn’t like playing to the tune of the mainstream. Matter fact, being mainstream would KILL the Kojima image.

What exactly was the US Gov’s plan in Half Life if they managed to contain the situation in Black Mesa before the Combine caught wind of the Nih-howeveryouspellitsname moving their forces to that realm/dimension/universe?

@Dustcan
That’s likely but…
I always had the impression that the higher ups in the Government knew exactly what was going on, (or at least had the idea that possibly much more dangerous otherworldly beings would start noticing their reality screwing antics), but kept HECU and Black Ops units in the dark in relation to all that “creatures from another world” stuff so that they could focus on killing the Black Mesa Staff and destroying the Complex.

Kinda sorta.
Black Mesa was a government facility IIRC, so they had to direct their findings and reports to the government. It’s how they get their funding. But as a consequence the government only knew what Black Mesa knew, indeed there would be a lag between Black Mesa making a discovery and them actually writing a report to the government.
So the government knew Black Mesa was doing interdimensional research. It knew BM had successfully made contact and expeditions into Xen. But Black Mesa only found out about the Nihilanth after the government already sent in a “clean-up” crew to contain the catastrophe.
The government didn’t know about the Nihilanth or the Combine specifically, but it did send in HECU to prevent something from invading our world on the off chance that there was something that could invade it.
Considering that the Combine had been trying to invade Earth for who knows how long but the Nihilanth prevented them from doing so, but the Nihilanth also wanted to invade Earth to escape the Combine, they just happened to make the right guess.

Is Hunt Down The Freeman canon to the lore btw?
USMC Mitchel Shephard was HECU and tryna kill Gordon, same as USMC Adrian Shephard in Opposing Force, except Adrian never met Gordon. Just caught him right as Gordon jumped into Xen.

I’m pretty sure it isn’t since it wasn’t written by Valve but a handful of fans.

@AaronMk
would you want it to be canon?
“you fucked up my face” and President Keemstar and everything?
No Valve can do better.
What I think would be incredibly fun, and only for the TV show, would be to canonize The Frontier into Fallout lore. A lot of the weird stuff it was up to could be smoothed out in both in episodic stories within a longer seasonal arch.

Isn’t that the mod with the teenage sex slave, or am I thinking of another mod?
Among other things, yes
But I don’t think she’s even important at all so can be cut or heavily edited

I said this before, but I’m pretty sure that whoever organizes E3 has been wanting to pull the plug for a while now. The only surprising thing is that they didn’t pull out when COVID gave them the perfect excuse to do so.
