Half-Life 2 Easter Egg - Genuine HL2

Open up the HL2.exe in notepad. Then resize the window to about 49 characters (49 x's is a good way of doing it). Scroll down until you see a large section of void (without text). Right after that, HL2 logos should appear, gradually enlarging until you hit the bottom.

Though this is a logo, I still believe it is an egg, rather than a symbol of genuinity.

It's easier to start from the end, and scroll up slowly. First logo (from the end) can be seen with width 16 characters, and is the smallest, second one is 24 characters wide, third one is 33 characters and last one is 49 characters.

That just usually means things like the logo was done at some point using redefined (ASCII) character-mode graphics, that's all. A common practice, really.
