Half-Life’s Gordon Freeman And Portal’s Chell Do Battle

If Valve’s two most famous silent protagonists had a fight, who would win? Chell or Freeman? Portal Gun or Gravity Gun? Long Fall Boots or HEV Suit?


This short film from Andrew McMurry imagines just that scenario, as the goateed geeklord throws down with the Portal lady over, what else, some cake.

We’ve featured McMurry’s work before, from real-life Mario Bros. to fights with Minecraft Steve.



The Portal Gun is useless unless you fire at a surface coated in moon rocks. Freeman wins by default.

EDIT: Just realized the video shows that they are in an area covered in panels coated with moon dust paint.
