Today we’re going to take a look back at some of the best, most iconic pieces of film and multimedia inspired by the Half-Life universe. As you may imagine, there has been an amazing amount of fan-created productions over the years. As much as we’d love to cover everything, we could not pack anything near the amount of stuff that exists into a single article (and we would probably burn out all of the content we have been wanting to share in this section for years ahead!). There are probably a lot of things that have been sadly lost or forgotten online too. Anyhow, here is a list of a few of the memorable fan-produced films, machinimas, series and other multimedia created since Half-Life’s release in 1998. Enjoy!

The video attempts to portray the brutality of the Combines Civil Protection team in an emotional and tense situation, whereby an undisclosed CP sees light in the situation and takes matters into his own hands.

Portman, who initially started out by using Garry’s Mod, has produced a many shorts over the years, all of which have all been well acclaimed by the community.

Two-Thirds-Life

Half-Life

Two-Thirds-Life is an awesome online Flash short made as a parody to the original Half-Life. Looking at each chapter and parodying it, Two Thirds Life manages to be pretty hilarious. A 27-minute sequel which would parody HL2 was in the works until early 2010, when it was cancelled, and all that remains is a trailer and a demo chapter of “A Red Letter Day”.

Still, the original is very awesome, and the TTL2 previews are great as well. Perhaps the author, Raiki, can post the unfinished videos. Till then, enjoy this classic.
