What’s that you say? Gaming has some great heroes these days. Korvo from Dishonored, Kratos from God of War and Desmond McMonkeyface from the Assassin’s Creed franchise? I scoff at your selection. Scoff to the max. Back in the day when those guys were nothing more than pen on paper diaper concept drawings, there was one hero who stood tall and kept damn quiet. Gordon Freeman was his name, and he was an ass-kicking scientist in a biohazard suit and spectacles, swinging a crowbar around and kicking head-crab head-ass. And now he’s been immortalized, in statue form.
I’ve been very much unimpressed with the movie industry for the last say, five years. With all this new technology and what not you’d think that movies would be better. There have been a select few that have been absolutely amazing and then there have been the most boring films since, well, the beginning of mankind.
I woke up this morning to a whole pile of emails telling me about the awesome G-Man song from indie sing writer Jonathan Lewis.
Now I have to admit that I am not much of a music buff and therefore maybe I am missing something but I donâ€™t quiet get what the huge excitement is about.
Yeah itâ€™s cool that someone made a song about a video game but I didnâ€™t think it was epic, rather just a cool novelty.
Let me know if you think I am talking nonsense and if you like the song make sure to head on over to iTunes and pick up a copy to support the guy in his work.
Check his site for full details of this and other songs that he has penned.
