HALF LIFE CLIFF NOTES
by 2muchvideogames

BLACK MESA INBOUND
Gordon rides the Black Mesa tram to work.

ANOMALOUS MATERIALS
Gordon arrives at Sector C where he shlunks the carrier into the beam causing a disaster of epic proportions.

UNFORESEEN CONSEQUENCES
Gordon breaks his way out of Sector C and somehow finds an elevator in the sewers.

OFFICE COMPLEX
Gordon navigates an office complex along with the help of scientists and security guards (on second thought, only the guards helped much.)

"WE'VE GOT HOSTILES"
Demonstrating a serious oversight of human rights, the US government sends in troops to neutralise all life including Gordon, who by now is toting a shotgun.

BLAST PIT
Gordon must somehow get past three long, sharp, deadly, noisy, and ugly green tentacles.

POWER UP
Gordon must power up a train while evading a big blue thingy...

ON A RAIL
A more violent train ride than the first chapter.

APPREHENSION
Gordon is apprehended by soldiers after surviving an assassination attempt on his life.

RESIDUE PROCESSING
Gordon tries to avoid being processed by undiscriminating machines.

QUESTIONABLE ETHICS
Gordon questions the ethics of putting secrecy and national security above individual human rights.

SURFACE TENSION
Gordon wonders why this chapter is called surface tension. And then he looks up and sees da choppers.

"FORGET ABOUT FREEMAN!"
Gordon rejoices since it is revealed that the soldiers are retreating from Black Mesa.

LAMBDA CORE
Some lazy scientists order Gordon to power up some pumps.
Then, Gordon is sent into another world. How fun.

XEN
Gordon jumps from platform to platform reminiscient of a plumber wearing red shirt and overalls.

GONARCH'S LAIR
Gordon's path is blocked by a walking testis. (Seriously that's what Valve programmers intended it to be)

INTERLOPER
Gordon goes gunnin' and runnin' across the factories of Xen like some action film hero.

NIHILANTH
Gordon attempts to hold peace talks with the supreme ruler of Xen, but it all breaks down eventually...

ENDGAME
Gordon declines his offer of employment and is left stranded on Xen, where he makes peace with the remaining aliens. With the death of the autocratic, warmongering ruler, Nihilanth, the remaining Xen population sets up a provisional government that holds democratic elections. Gordon eventually settles down and marries a vortigaunt and lives happily ever after. THE END

That's a fairly humorous synopsis of the HL story you got there.
But you should have 2 endgame choices; The other should have him filing paperwork or something.
