I just saw ghostbusters at school and i noticed the gun with the backpack...i was wondering did half life get the name egon from ghostbusters because it shoots and looks just like it.

The actual name of the HL gun is the Gluon Gun. Fans of Ghostbusters then nicknamed it the egon.

Yes, Valve did take bits from the Ghostbusters Movies for the weapon_egon.

Sabrina, Ghostbusters came out first in 1984, so yeah it came out before Halflife...(note I had to look for the date, It's not like I have a good memory at all)

Hahahaa, if you also notice, Egon Spengler is also the name of one of the 'Busters. [Ray, Peter, and Winston were the rest of the guys.]

Anyone know the professional name of the backpack that they used? [Unless they DID call it the gluon....]

no... gluons are small particles exchanged by quarks inside a electron/neutron/proton....

The correct quote was

"You are nothing but unorganised grabasstic pieces of amphibian sh!t!"

And it came from film "Full Metal Jacket" by Stanley Kubrick.

Yes yes, KilGore, the quote I was refering to was a spoof on the FMJ movie.
