Half Life 1 Storyline Recap

I just bought Half Life 2, but have never played the original. I was wondering if anyone on here could offer me a recap of the story thus far. I'm particularly interested in any plot twists, and any background information on characters that return in the sequel.

Thanks a ton. If anyone knows of a site that's already covered this, please link me. That works too.

And for anyone who views this as blasphemy, don't worry. I bought the silver package, so I'll play Half Life Source once I'm done with 2.

well since no one's posted i'll start us off from what i remember, although it was a long time ago. you start off as gordon freeman, you go to a laboratory experiment, switch on something, and a portal opens up. aliens come from the portal, and the world has gone crazy. there are few survivors, but a few guards and people still alive help you. you try to get to the surface, and then the marines come. you keep fighting the marines, and i'm not sure what happens after that.

howdy rhythmicmoose. i'll add to what logisticprism wrote. during hl1, you also teleport a bit, a couple of times to Xen, which was the alien's (vortigaunts) homeworld. It was a really sparse kind of trippy world w/ no gravity. The hottie from HL2 wasn't in the first one, and Barney was. oh yeah, Forget about Freeman.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
