Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
Those "challenges" sure felt like a tutorial.... Here have this gun now figure out how to open a portal... good... go to the next level, learn how to use momentum.  good.. repeat...  Only at near the end did it feel like I was actually playing a game and was enjoying it before it ended way too soon.  :blah:


Actually the gun would have worked a whole lot better in Prey where there already was a wacky environment.

Spoiler:
Look where you came from, and up.  I won't tell you how, but it's possible to get there.

Now the real game begins! ;)

Hmmmm not sure if it's the same place I remember, the one with the fan on the bottom and a bright light at the top?

Spoiler:
You can shot through fans too just aim right  ;)

The 'figure out' stuff you described, that's the game.  It's a puzzle game.  If you don't like puzzle games, that's fine, but that's what it is, take it or leave it.  If you really like puzzles try the advanced chambers afterwards.

So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see

Many names, but always me.

Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
I'll need to get this. I played the first few levels on my brother's machine a year ago, and liked what I saw.

If you liked Portal, The Ball and Prometheus are freeware games that are somewhat similar in concept (although The Ball is going commercial with its next version). They were originally UT3 mods but are now standalone games. I think a combination of all three of these would make the ultimate first-person puzzle game.

Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
I'm utterly astounded that so many of you are just playing the game for the first time now.  I'm a full five or six years behind the gaming curve, and even I managed to get the Orange Box a year or two ago. :p

Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
I would have gotten it when it came out if it was sold as a standalone title for $10-15, but I didn't care about the other orange box games and wasn't going to buy it just for Portal. The price has probably fallen since then, but I had mostly forgotten about the game until now.

 
Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
I don't care about the Orange Box since I'm not interested in TF2 or was interested in Portal before it was free, and I'm not buying the OB just for HL2 Ep. 2, which is why I bought the Episode Pack since I didn't have Ep. 1.

Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
I don't play online FPS games.  Is that simple enough for your blown minds to comprehend?

Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
Yes, as amazing as that seems, some people don't like online FPSing.

Still, the Orange Box is certainly one piece of software that is worth the money....

Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
Nope, I stay away from online FPS as much as possible, in fact about the only online games i play are those simple facebook games.

Re: Portal on Steam for Free!!!
I wasn't interested in TF2 either. I got the orange box anyway for Portal and the HL2 games, and enjoyed them immensely.

Several months later, I decided to give TF2 a shot. Guess which one I've now sunk the most time into? :)
