Main character in the computer games Half-Life and Half-Life2.
PHD in ultra-physics, nerdy guy and a total fuckup when it comes to making experiments work without causing the end of human civilisation... That is until he turns into a meen killing machine that was able, all by himself, to defeat the Goverment Special Forces, alien invading creatures and a BIG foetus looking uber-monster; All that in just the first installement of the game. In the second part we discover that Freeman has become a pure agent of death and destruction (working with the good guys) who is still unable to score with ladys and who, after meeting with a guy that has godly powers, still has to wear corrective glasses.
Anyway, the caracter has become a legend and all we are waiting for is episode 3 where he may (we hope) do something usefull and make some sense!
