    I just finished Portal from The Orange Box, and it was amazing! The ending is one of my favorites of any video games. What do you guys think of this game?

    I think the game was a triumph.

    I had a strong urge for cake after finishing the game.

    @Sekhu:
    I kind of want a discussion just for Portal, so we don't have to get rid of all spoilers...

    Who else actually laughed out loud during this game? I haven't laughed at a video game in a very long time.

    Portal = win.

    I've definitely had to stop a few times so I could essentially go, "What the fudge is she talking about?"

    Probably the most ridiculous thing about Portal is the following of the Weighted Companion Cube.

    I started playing Portal today and I just completed it! Not often I find a game so addictive I complete it in one day. I thought it was brilliant! It's a very difficult game and you need to have a sharp brain to figure out some of the puzzles. It was probably the best and strangest puzzle game I've ever played. It was weird... the computer woman kinda creeped me out lol... the cake was no lie!

    I loved the crazed AI talk the whole way through the game, Portal just wouldn't be the same if it was just a simple puzzle game.

    Favourite quote -

    [SPOILERS]"Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye' and you were like (deep male voice) 'NO WAY!' (normal voice) and then I was all 'We pretended we were going to murder you'? That was great!"[/SPOILERS]

    I loved it. Too bad it was short but I prefer quality over quantity anyday.

    Some really good custom maps are starting to show up.

    GLADYS's third computer ball thing, the one that growls at you, is voiced by Mike Patton from Dillinger Escape Plan, Faith no More, and Mr. Bungle. I found that neat.

    Haha yeah what mc dui said. that's my favorite quote too. "and we laughed haha"

    I just beat the game for a second time, this time listening to the developer commentary. Next playthrough is shooting the cameras.
