Some of that doesn't seem right, such as the missile bit and how the Combine got on Earth. Wikipedia is your friend, so I'll have to check it later.

The sequence in the Cathedral at the top of the Hill is great. The HDR looks beautiful.

Oh...and sorry about the missile; thought you meant in HL2:E2

As for the original... I dunno.

As I already explained, he does not know all his stuff. I knew it sounded wrong. I was going to wait until later to spend time getting the real answers but I despise improper reputation points being given out.

n case you did not
know, his name is the G-Man, and he's also referred to as the
"Administrator" at the Black Mesa facility. He let's you know that all of
your weapons were stripped for meeting purposes. He congratulates you for
allowing him to now control the Xen race. Because of your potential, and
single-handed ability to bring down an opposing race, he has recommended
your services to his employers for future jobs. Seeing as you're a
decisive man, the choice should be quite clear. If you want to work for
the man and his associates, simply step through the portal when it opens
up. Otherwise, if you choose not to accept his offer, you will be warped
into a battle you cannot possibly survive. Of course, the choice is up
to you.*

Iunno read it from a guide.

Sorry to be a "Nomenclature Whore" but Protagonist is entirely the wrong word, as is "Antagonist"; A better description would be "good guys" = Resistance, and, "bad guys" = Combine.

Antagonists (from the greek) can be entirely "good" characters".
Protagonist = leading man/woman/character.

For instance, if you play one of those vampire-type-games, your character is the Protagonist; even if not entirely "good"

Antlions are not idigenous (To Earth), rather, they are alien - and came through the portals..

He is a pawn, being used/manipulated by the combine leaders hoping for some reward from our "Benefactors".

He is trying to save his own sorry AS5 by selling Earth down the river.

He will get his, I am sure.

5) What was the point of launching that missile?
6) WHO'S GMAN?!?!
7) How'd Ravenholm get raped so hardcore with zombies?
8) Antlions...lolwut? Where'd they come from?

Yeah answer away.
Pretty sure some of you may know what happens when you answer at least one. Oh, and I played all the other Half-Life's so feel free to post spoilers.
1) We don't know.
2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combine_%28Half-Life_2%29
3) Something happened between HL1 and HL2 that made humans and vorts friends
4) Check the link I put in #2
5) We will find out what its effects are in HL2:EP3, it was to shut down the portal between the combine world and earth
6) IDK, MY BFF JILL?
7) Not sure
8) They have always been on that stretch of coastline, but since the combines portal has drained so much of the oceans water, they cover a much greater area.

You freed the xen race(which is a whole bunch of different species of aliens) in the first game after opening the xen portals to earth. You freed them from the nihilanth, that giant fetus thing boss you beat at the end of hl1, who used his awesome telepathic powers to control the xen. I think the G-Man planned this all out, because afterwards he has control of xen.

In real life, the G-Man name stands for Government Man. I figure that's just what the humans call him since he talks so formally and wears a suit. But I think he is like an intergalactic alien, selling you to the highest bidder, from what he has said during the HL2 games. This basically says everything I agree with

Antlions came through the portal. And the combine have been draining earth of resources.
