Has anyone read concerned: The half life and death of Gordon Frohman?

It's a webcomic written back in 2005 by Chris Livingston (a games journalist who now writes for Rock, Paper, Shotgun and PC Gamer). If you haven't it's actually hilarious - it is a spoof of Half Life 2, and follows the misadventures of a character that moves through the HL2 world just ahead of Gordon Freeman. If you haven't played the game the comic is still very funny.

Here's one of my favourite strips

That is awesome, I'm going to have to work my way through those :-)

My favourite guilty pleasure of HL fanfic is "Half-Life: Full Life Consequences" - which I still find hilarious to this day. If you have a few minutes spare, I'd 100% recommend checking it out :-)

Can confirm, having not played the game, that it's a funny comic :) I guess a lot of the absurdities are either pretty universal or at least common enough in game scenario setups that the fun poked at them still works very well.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...
