    Hi all, I'm new here, and I hope this thread is ok.

    There's the picture of an actual man in the video game Half-Life, but I don't know who he is. This might be some scientist, of someone from Seattle (where the game developers hail from), or any random guy, but he is likely famous. I thought a photo forum was the best place to ask this. Here's the (tiny) pic:

    If anyone knows, I'd be glad to know who that man is. Thank you all! :)

    Photo forums are more into actually taking images, posing, light, techniques and so on then actually who is in the image.

    Maybe try Valve forums or other game related forums?

    Probably someone in the developing team rather than anyone famous ;)

    Among those pictures (found in the game files - all black & white) are also Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Babe Ruth and Thurgwood Marshall, so I guess this guy might also be some famous American.

    Does anyone know then a website where I could get info about that?...

    Try emailing Valve about it. Might take time, but you never know...

    So it's probably worse that I don't even know what Half Life is. :(

    The speed of answer depends on how and who you contact. Anyway I'll try other forums, or Yahoo! Answers. ;)

    Picture is too small to tell. It's most likely one of the programmers.
