Half Life 2 - 3rd person broken

With all the Half life 2 Orange Box whatnot I decided to buy HL2 and give it a run. Now I'm not a big fan of shooters, but the game is so cool I decided to be forgiving and I'm having a blast.

I've only had the game for about two days and decided to turn on the console to play with some of the behind the scenes stuff. It would seem the the 3rd person camera is broken. Now, I understand that they most likely left it out because it was buggy and not workable, but it's been a few years now and the function doesn't seem to work still. It looks to be half-there, but for some reason Gordon isn't being rendered and makes gameplay a little difficult. I figured with the source code SDK released and all someone has fixed this. Is there a mod I can download or a patched version that I use?

Other than that, it's a pretty fun game.

    Well, geez, I didn't even know there was a 3rd person mode in HL2. I'll have to check that out.

    It's... not really meant to be played 3rd person.

    I mean... it's like asking what's up with the Doom marine not showing up in 3rd person.

    Using console commands to play game in ways it was not meant to be played may break it! News at 11!
