He's also from HL1. I think it stands for Government Man or something.

The standard meaning of G-man is Government man, as mentioned above....

Most Common use:

FBI agent = G-man

But it can be applied to any government employee..... generally it is reserved for Federal Government employees who are directly trying to enforce things... which is why FBI agents are the main target of the slang.
