    As is evident from the number of threads about the situation, specifically this one, I decided that a thread listing all previous theories could be used as a basis for any newcomers with a theory or idea to present to us. From an immediate search, the only topics that covered this were Darkside's thread and the one referenced earlier.

    As is the time of year, many newcomers and new threads are being produced, all with ideas and theories of their own. This is often healthy for the community, leading to a good discussion about the matter. However, it is often that many of these theories are repeated or rehashed, and this can lead to annoyance, anger and much flaming about the "noobyness" of someone.

    I felt it necessary, therefore, that a database, of sorts, should be erected to hold any already discussed ideas so that anyone with a "new" idea could easily check to see whether their idea has already been discussed, but also so that everyone can think about each theory for themselves. Because, as with many shrouded things, different ideas stem to try and answer questions people will often answer, and conflicts will arise.

    After a quick search through the forums I couldn't find any topics covering this except for Darkside's rant against Gman theories and the "myths" thread that this thread came from.

    I would appreciate it if anyone with a link to a thread containing a/many theory/theories along with their discussions. Useful titles to the links would be nice, and any threads with spoilers in them should be labelled.

    Please refrain from commenting/discussing/spamming in this topic. Only links to appropriate discussions.
    Thank you.

    I hope this thread might help newcomers to organise their thoughts.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    GLaDOS Theory
    The nature of GLaDOS and her possible death *spoilers*

    Combine Chopper's Crazy Super Technology
    The nature of the Combine's Infinite ammo

    GLaDOS and Chell are The Combine
    GLaDOS and Chell being the Combine *spoilers*

    The Borealis Cargo
    What might be inside the Borealis *spoilers*

    The G-Man and Aperture Science
    Is the G-man an aperture science employee? *spoilers*

    Dr. Magnusson is the G-Man
    Nutty theory about the G-Man being Dr. Magnusson *spoilers*

    Lamarr's Future
    A discussion of the possibilities of what might happen to Lamarr *spoilers*

    Breen = Advisor
    A theory that Wallace Breen might be an advisor of the combine. *spoilers*

    Alyx's value to the G-Man
    How important Alyx is to the G-man and what her relationship with him involves.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    G-Man Theories
    I believed a section should be dedicated to the ridiculous ideas of who the G-man might be. Anyone with any further suggestions, please feel free to post them.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    G-Man =
    Gordon
    Gabe
    Magnusson
    GLaDOS
    The Combine

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you do have a theory not mentioned, please think about it first.
    Please also note that there is a thread with all factual information about the Half-Life universe: Laidlaw

    Many thanks to DerbyDriver1985 for the thread idea.

    That's exactly the kind of comment I was hoping to avoid. The section that is of importance is in the centre of the text.

    If it's possible, I'd appreciate anyone coming across a theory based thread to post a link here. And any link to the G-man ideas (the more ridiculous the better). And I don't mean you to suggest them straight off, an already created post, otherwise we could be here all day listing the different characters in Half-Life.

    "Omg! G-man is a Vortigaunt! Lolz!!"

    But seriously, this thread is important. I can only hope it gets expanded and stickied. You need to throw some Adrian theories in there as well.

    Why not? It would be a good step toward people starting threads about theories already discussed. In turn, they can post their thoughts on that relevant thread covering the theory accordingly.
