First Official Game With a Speaking Protagonist
While it is true that Half-Life: Alyx is the first official game with a speaking protagonist, a few mods and fan-games before it have had a speaking protagonist, from Hunt Down the Freeman to Entropy: Zero.
While these are not official games, it is probably worth noting other Half-Life games have had speaking protagonists. 126.96.36.199 18:04, 16 May 2020 (MSK)
Drone is a character?
In the article it says Russell's drone is a character but, It's a drone and doesn't have sentience, so, is it really a character? — Unsigned comment by Dennett
- The drone is a specifically named entity in the game's ending credits (because it has its own voice actor), and Combine Scanners are already treated as enemies in general. Seeing as the drone is an ally Scanner that's the sole one of its kind (as opposed to a general Scanner type), this is the closest category it falls under. Marphy (talk) 05:05, 19 February 2022 (MSK)
