Coming from a longtime Half-Life fanboy: No. One of the most interesting parts of Half-Life is how it places you in the shoes (or HEV suit) of Gordon Freeman. You never once are put in a "cinematic cam" or fade from one scene to the next. You start out and play it all in one go with loading screens in between from beginning to end. You're always seeing things through his eyes at all times. Another special thing about Half-Life games is how the protagonist has no voice. In some situations he's obviously talking to other people, but you can only hear the other person's response. You never once hear Gordon's/Barney's/Shephard's voice. Okay, you can hear Barney's voice as a side character, but not as a protagonist. Giving Gordon Freeman a voice would ruin the experience for me. Lastly, I like Half-Life for being something that not everybody knows about. Only the real hardcore gamers have played Half-Life. Having a major film for Half-Life would expose it and (this might sound silly, but) I can't stand when something that I've enjoyed for years just suddenly becomes popular. Hollywood can have something like CoD, GoW, or Halo. Something that all the teenagers already identify with. Half-Life is different. I wouldn't want people going to see the movie when they haven't even played the game (or heard of it before).
