Portal

I admit to enjoying the living hell out of TF2, but I really bought the Orange Box for Portal. I have to say that it didn't disappoint. The humor throughout the game is genius! And without giving away the ending, the credits are hilarious.

Thoughts! Go!

AWESOME game. really unique--never played anything like it before, and I doubt there will be many that manage to rip it off.

Hilarious, challenging, and just plain fun.

also, BEST. ENDING. EVAR

i must get the soundtrack (especially the credits music) to this game. MUST.

Speaking of Orange Box, Episode Two is just as awesome as Half-Life 2, if not more so. While Half-Life 2 was a little on the easy side and Episode One was so frustrating and had so rewarding elements it felt like a chore, Episode Two is both decently challenging and full of insanely fun new gameplay mechanics.

Also, holy crap the story is going somewhere cool now. The ending snuck up on me entirely.

This is a double post because Portal is worthy of it. I have to say, I have no regrets that I did nothing but play Valve games and eat for the last fourteen hours.

Thankyou all for confirming my suspicions. =D I can't wait to play either Portal or the new Ep. I just wish I had some cash with which to buy this...

Man, we gotta wait till next week haha. Dammit, why can't all games have a simultaneous release.

Just got through beating the advanced levels. I'm not quite sure how you were supposed to beat the last one, but I did it in the most unorthodox fashion. I don't know if I have the patience for the challenges, though.

Anyone check out the flash game? Done by someone else, it's a 2D version. And if I had fun playing that, I'm thinking I should have fun playing the full version.

Not having played Half-Life 2, and seeing how fun just the 2D version is... maybe I will go pick up Orange Box.

Go buy The Orange Box at Circuit City or Fry's if you haven't yet. They're both selling it for about $40 this week after taxes, but I'm sure it'll be back to retail prices by Sunday.

I haven't played anything other than Team Fortress 2. Not only that, but I played only as an Engineer for the first 4 or 5 hours straight.

But after I break my addiction, I shall give Portal a try. And HL2.

is there a way to get Portal without buying the orange box (i already have HL2)? ...please don't say steam distribution. i would rather hang myself. seriously.

There's a Black Box that contains just Portal, TF2 & HL2 Ep 2 for PC users only.

To suzu: I think Orange Box is the only physical retail option. Although it doesn't make the limitation any less annoying, there's an option to transfer the HL2 and E1 rights to someone else via Steam, so you could get your money back by finding a friend to pay you for them.

Otherwise, it costs an exorbitant stand-alone amount on Steam.
