I like how the HEV suit does the talking for him.
Totally plausible and in fact a nice twist;
having an artificial intelligence in your suit is something that may have been done before (halo), but fits in this universe. After all, an artificial intelligence stabbed onto your gun isn't that far awa

I work in a Secret facility and we just retrofitted with air ducts that are much larger. The old ones were like 1 foot by 1.5 foot. the new ones are almost 4 time the size. After all, gotta comply with equal opportunity laws

the Metal Gear Solid series actually nailed how air ducts actually worked, in the first game, you got these narrow feelings of being completely helpless when in a air duct or under a parked car or table, but in Metal Gear Solid 2 you could (barely) shoot from underneath it, giving you some defense.

I always did think the airducts in videogames and movies were off...
P.S. Since when can Freeman speak?

in half life 1 it was pretty possible for those air-ducts, cause it was supposed to bring a sh**load of air through a gaint underground facility or else hundreds of scientists would die.
and dont forget maintenance.

but hl2 had some points where it was not quite realistic with air ducts.

Not to mention the supports are thin metal straps made to hold the vents weight only and sharp sheet metal edges everywhere.

Infact my old school had gym-building with air-ducts
like the one above. I have even photograph for that.

Oh yeah , the air shaft is JUST enough for you to crawl comfortably. No matter if your protagonist is woman or man or how many rockets he carry with him :)

There's also the fact when some games make airducts so quiet to traverse in. Anyone within earshot can hear someone moving in an airduct.

I think the Bridge in half-life 2 is fairly symptomatic of a similar issue. he's leaping from place to place on girders that an acrobat would have some difficulty with as if it were nothing. so many things in games defy logic i don't see why the vent issue is getting to people.

Vents in Deus Ex always felt way too small for JC and Adam to contort their way into. I don't understand how they move in those.

Good for you Mr. Cop. Taser his ass for saying a word.

The first panel reminds me of that one map in TF2.

To be fair, at my school, there are air ducts that are big enough to crawl through, and a few years ago, there were some kids who climbed around in them.

To be completely fair usually if a character is crawling through duct work it's in a large complex where the actual duct work is about man-sized...Not crouch or slouch walk but definitely able to be crawled through. How else do you think your going to get air to the 30th floor?

I see Gordon is heading toward BLU team's Command center from RED's Jail. I didn't expect him to work for the REDs.

Freeman has a strangely effeminate figure here.

Solid Gear Metal by Kojima Hideo anyone?

In a last project I did, I put a 1500x1500 duct, but with air flow 44000 m3/h and air speed 7 m/s its really difficult to crawl in them
