Well its been 7 some odd good years. Can't say I won't miss the old HL1 Freeman's Mind series.


Thanks for your time, dedication and just putting up with all the bullcrap. Congrats Ross.

Yeah, I'm gonna miss looking forward to Freeman's Mind episodes from now on, but I'm hooked on Game Dungeon now, so I guess I'll never be completely free from checking back here for new content.

Think this is the first time I've posted here, but like a few others I've been a lurker for a while now. Just wanted to say that the finale was great, loved the alternate ending with G-Invasion. Thanks for seeing this thing through to the end, especially with all the bugs Source still has (I knew Demo recording could be a pain sometimes, but I didn't realize it was that much of one with HL:S.)

You're definitely my favorite content creator right now, I don't think I've seen any of your stuff that I haven't enjoyed. Looking forward to the update video next month! Now go get some rest, you've earned it.

Hey Ross. I've just signed up to offer my thanks. I found out about this series around the "dark days" when M*******a were causing the problems. I've always been a lurker on this site and I've watched every video you've put out, Freeman's Mind or otherwise. I love your work and while it's a shame that FM is now over, I still look forward to anything you release. I really hope the fan base doesn't dwindle now that FM is over because you have so much potential and I'm really pumped for the future, be it FM2, Game Dungeons, the movie, Civil Protection, whatever. In your immediate future I think it's fair to say you've earnt yourself a well-deserved rest!


This has been my favourite YouTube series to watch and you're my favourite content creator. Thanks for everything so far Ross, and I can't wait to see what's next!

Ugh, where's that 10 hour Sad Violin video? I think I need it right about now.

Thank you for this, Ross, and I look forward to your other projects in the future!

I don't get half of the science humor in FM, but I think that's one of the beauty parts of it.

My only complaint was having all of those comments along with the video. Other than that, it was a great finale, episode, and series as a whole.

I thought that Nihilanth had some lines in the game, I mean there are quotes from him/she/it.

Ross, you've mentioned several times in interviews that the format of Freeman's Mind is a limiting factor. Well, you made the series extremely interesting and varied. You did a fine job with the tools you had.


I hope you get plenty of rest.

I was in middle school when i first started watching this. I'm in college now. This has been a super good part of my life, and a life line. Each day was pretty hard on me, and I didn't really enjoy most passing weeks, but some how Freeman's mind made me live month to month. I'm doing better now though, and i'd like to think it's because of you, Ross.

Alright... I'm flooding with feelings now that words alone cannot accommodate. So I will illustrated this with gifs.. lots of gifs. It will probably be a bit heavy to load them all for some people. For that, I'm sorry, but this has to be done.

gifs put in spoilers for low-res or slow PCs/phones by Luis:


So, I woke up in this fine morning, opened YouTube and what I see in the front page.. it was glorious.. It was finally there.



Followed immediately by:



Next came a collection of feelings that only could be described as pure bliss.






But by the end, an incredible feeling of loss took hold of my soul.. I knew there, it was over.



It was in vain..






The denial came strong in me



But them I remembered how good it was.. the amazing journey this was. And all those great moments






...Goodbye, Freeman. The longest relationship I ever had.. Thanks.



And for all that, all I can say is: Congratulations and thank you, Ross. The greatest Mind of all.






You've done it, Ross. Your Magnum Opus is complete. It's time now to rejoice.






Now, the last one, I promise: What will come next?
