    This has been pointed out alot, but there is still no clear explaination development-wise as to why the Zombies in HL2 wear Lab coats when there were not many scientists around at all.

    Certainly the Halflife2 beta (if any of you seen it or played it) had Zombie models with citizen uniforms.
    I wonder what persuaded Valve to use the labcoat model zombie as opposed to the more accurate Citizen uniform model zombie

    Not a labcoat, just what some citizens wear. Note the dark band at the end of the sleeves.

    Indeed and labcoats tend to come down a bit lower than that (midway down the thigh or to the knee), it is quite obvious the garment in Fishie's image finishes at the waistline.

    I agree, it does accentuate the hips rather nicely.

    This has been brought up so many times. As FishBulb said, it's just refugee garb, not a labcoat.

    Did it ever occur to anyone that a zombie might put on a labcoat after zombifying a regular citizen? Are you saying a zombie can't be a scientist? Maybe the headcrabs are really quite intelligent but need host bodies to manipulate lab equipment, did you ever think of that, Mr. "There weren't any scientists around so why do zombies wear labcoats?"

    But why would a zombie need a labcoat? If they spell acid on themselves it isn't a problem, the headcrab scientist just need to find a new host body!

    Glove manufacturers are insensitive to the needs of headcrab zombies, so there are no gloves tailored to fit their four-fingered, elongated claw hands.

    Also glasses on a headcrab don't be ridiculous.

    Looks like someone else is crushing on darkside.

    But if it's so cold in City 17, why do the fast zombies run around naked?

    I'm going to get infraction'd for this, but bets on how long this nub will last.

    ON TOPIC YEAH: Headcrab zombies should have another model tbh. That one is getting old. Zombines don't count.

    Gman hasn't done any flame-able offense.

    There's no escaping G-man theory threads, regardless of how fake-pissed-off you are about them. Just don't reply to them.

    Is that really necessary? Come on now.

    He's been here FIVE DAYS. You guys are jerkfaces.

    You can tell by his grammar that he is either not very mature or not very bothered to type properly.

    Let's just leave it at that, and hope he slows down (in terms of thread making). Swearing at him doesn't help.

    Yes it is necessary, this is a text book example of a child with a new toy. I don't join forums and create threads and replies with daft theories that were debunked years ago, acting as if no one has ever thought of them before. It gets on peoples tits. Especially when they do it even after being politely advised otherwise.

    Kids will be kids. They just want that pat on the back, that positive, job-well-done affirmation from the older members. Gman's gotta be in what... fourth grade? It's part of the laws of maturity: you don't call children idiots. Especially when they didn't do anything idiotic. Kids call other kids idiots. If you consider yourself grown up, and call a child an idiot, YOU ARE NOT GROWN UP. This isn't about getting on other peoples' tits. I don't see Gman as a person who simply ignored the advice that was given to him. I see a person who wasn't entirely capable of understanding the advice that was given to him, and just wanted to share his imagination with the world.

    How do you expect a child to react internally after a horrible experience here? Saying "It's just the internet" won't cut it. Kids take it very personally when a whole host of people are bashing on them. We see reports of kids committing suicide over an internet affair about one thing or another. I want to prevent that as much as possible. And despite only a few lousy threads (that don't hurt anybody, by the way.... people only pretend to be mad at these kinds of threads), he's been treated like scum.

    ON THE OTHER HAND!

    Don't we have an age requirement? I think it's 13, but could someone please confirm?

    THERE IS NO 'PRETEND' WHEN I RAGE AT A G-MAN THEORY THREAD, AND YOUR CONDONING OF SAID THREADS MAKES YOU JUST AS BAD AS 'THOSE PEOPLE' ARE.

    THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR POSTING G-MAN THEORIES.

    Not to be "that guy", but if you're on the internet where everyone is anonymous (for the most part), you're going to be treated like an adult, as well as be expected to act like one, even if everyone knows how old you are.

    You fail at detecting sarcasm, but if you're being sarcastic yourself by pointing out Acepilot's sarcastic contradiction, then I fail at detecting sarcasm. Makes sense, right?
