So what compelled you to suddenly bring it up now?

When Half-Life was made, clipping of this sort was incredibly common in all games. Ever play Ocarina of Time? Great game, but every time you turn around you could see through a wall or something like that.

Game engines have evolved since then. Complaining about it now is like saying "Why didn't you invest in Apple 15 years ago?"

Problem is this is Source version not the original version so not really an excuse.

This is intended. It is to show how advanced Black Mesa was, that they could even turn objects non-solid. Different scientists have different personalities. This one just loves sitting on the floor. There is nothing wrong.

If you're curious as to why it wasn't fixed, then there may be two simpdle answers (amongst others).

(1) It doesn't happen to a lot of people. I've not experienced it on the Source version, and I've played it through more than a few times. PCs are by nature made up of a myriad variations of different components; no two computers are the same. So, little bugs like this do creep in.

(2) It's rather irrelevant. It's not game-breaking, and unless there are a whole host of other things to attend to, it's not worth the time and resources to patch it.

I don't dispute that, but it's so minor.

Those two points I made still stand. If you can't appreciate them, then with all due respect you know very little about the gaming industry or how such things work.
