I've noticed the G-Man walking around in various areas in HL2 and the episodes...always just outside of the normal camera range unless if you really look at him.

I realize that this is just a bit of cinematic flair and Valve is playing around here a bit, but I'm there any way to interact with him? Shoot or kill him even?

I'm currently about halfway through Episode 2 and just noticed him walking on a far-off catwalk. I didn't have access to a weapon at that point but it kind of made me wonder.

He is also found in Half-Life 1. I believe he is present in all Half-Life games. – Denilson Sá Aug 24 '10 at 23:24

No, he is never close enough to harm. He is immune to being shot, even if you reach him via noclip or other means.
