Portal 2 - Best game I've played this year (so far)

Posted 22 April 2011 - 05:40 PM

Yep, we have a winner. A massive winner. I've only played an hour of the game but already I feel this game outweighs any other game I bought this year.

The graphics engine does show its age a bit and you will notice some sore thumbs sticking out in the environment, but overall the technical aspects of the graphics are overshadowed by how fucking brilliant the art direction is. The environment is great and seeing the facility aged and overrun by plants really makes you want to know what happened and why.

Glados is fucking awesome as always, and I have laughed about 9 times during the hour I was playing. It's really funny! :) I'm kind of bummed that it'll end! :( Really.

Fantastic, in every sense.

Let's discuss the game and what you liked about it, and what you didn't like about it. ;)

SPOILERS BELONG IN SPOILER TAGS.

I just beat the game last night, simply fantastic. I've started to go back through with the developer commentary. It's really neet to hear about all the work they put in with play-testing in order to make a great experience, and the technical discussions are pretty cool too (from a programmers perspective anyway).

I really want this game now. It really seems amazing. I had the first one in the orange box but I never really played it much. When I did play it though it was amazing and since I am out today I might go get it :D

OK, just beat the game literally 2 minutes ago, and I'm massively dissapointed. I want something, anything to relate to Half-Life 2. ANYTHING!

I waited till the absolute final second and didn't see squat! :(

Pretty bummed out right now.

Apparently there's an achievement for finding remnants or some information related to a lost Aperture Science research vessel... one that a certain Black Mesa scientist should be looking for in HL2 Ep3.

So, was playing through with developer commentary (and trying to get a few achievements along the way), when I started to wonder about how Chell got wrapped up with Aperture. Did she volunteer to be a test subject? At what point in your life (besides grad school) do you sign up to be a test subject? Anyway, I followed a hunch and took a closer look at some in-game scenery and I think I found something:

massively off topic, but Dragon Age 2 was pretty good. Not epic by any standards...but better than all the COD clones that developers are spittin out.

There's a great sense of accomplishment when you play a game like Portal :bananaman:
