Windows 7: Why is there such a fuss about Portal 2???

Why is there such a fuss about Portal 2???

Now, I loved Portal as much as anybody. However, I don't quite see how a game made less than 5 years ago seems to have gained more of a 'cult status' than say, Tron or Star Wars. Now the long awaited (for some reason unbeknown to me) sequeal arrives and there's seemingly more fuss about it than the next CoD!? I don't get why there was quite such a big deal about it

Maybe because it had a cool song,

and how come the youtube tags don't work for me? I can't seem to embed them in a post.

because Portal is just pure awesomeness. GLaDOS's sarky attitude, the ability to go nearly anywhere through a hole made by a sweet looking gun, Playing a charicter thats nearly a vegetable instead of [sarcasm]a pimped up strong-ass know-it-all own-everything 007 gun-man[/sarcasm]


I was up the night it was released (thank you, ear infection and insomnia!!)
as soon as i saw it as playable, i played it.

Portal is better than CoD, imho. Unlike cod, it requires thinking.. unlike other "point and shoot" vegetable games.

imma prolly get flamed for saying this, and loads of -rep but i speak my mind and if people decide to listen...up to them.



and for the rec', i'm just getting achievements in portal 2 now. 7hrs to complete

You aren't going to get negative rep.
Portal 2 is an awesome game, it's going to be one of the first games I'll be playing on my new computer (which I'm getting today happyhappyhappyhappy)
You are absolutely correct when you make the analogies to CoD, in my opinion.

Not really. They are two completely different types of game.

One is a FPS shooter, the other is not.

The real question is, does it live up to the original Portals' awesomeness, and is it worth the money? Granted $45 isn't as bad as $60 for PS3, but I hate spending money on a game that just doesn't deliver.

I wouldn't call CoD a *decent* fps shooter to be honest. flame me if you wish, but that's my opinion. I much prefer Half Life and Unreal Tournament..

It does cost more for consoles, and I don't know why. I pre-ordered it on Steam. personally I enjoyed Portal, and I enjoyed Portal 2 even more. though..

and the 7 hours as mentioned above...well...as my sig says... I think with


***********SPOILER ALERT************

Well I didn't think there'd be a Portal 2 with the end of Portal 1, lol.

I enjoyed Portal 1 a lot, but didn't think it was as good as everyone made out, especially when it was about 2 or 3 hours worth of gameplay. Portal 2 looks to improve that a lot, but still don't really wanna pay full price for it.

Hehe, what I couldn't understand is why all the billboard and bus ads and such. NO ONE that didn't know anything about Portal one knows what the hell the ads ar for. NO ONE.

And anyone that knows what Portal one was, certainly already knew about Portal 2 without any bilboards.

Seems like a giant waste of money
