I must of listened to the ending song on youtube like 30 times..... Portal rocks.

I haven't had the chance to play any Half-Life games, but my boyfriend does have this game. He bought it after we both saw this review. Keep up the good work. ^__^

Was portal really that great? I trusted your review and went out and bought the Orange box...basically only for Portal. I'm hoping it's as great as you claim.

I'm starting to trust your gaming opinions over most of the other game reviewers out there
(based on the fact that you have the nuts to talk shit about Halo 3, and everyone else is too scared to really speak their minds about it).

Hahah Love the review, I defiantly trust your review over most others, I even bought Psychonauts after watching your review of it and it is indeed quite fun :)

Keep up the good work! (I think you need more caffeine not less :D )

It's not worth $50 on its own, and I don't think it'll keep you occupied for months on end, but it is really a very unique experience.

I was crying at the end of this review...funniest one ever!!!

I don't know if anyone else saw this.

You misspelled Freeman.

here's a small yet quite funny clip of someone being a Spy on TF2

I'm 99% sure that was an intentional misspelling. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe he wrote his name as Gordan Freemon.

Ok I am not much into for FPS... but aafter this review I GOT to have The Orange Box *_*(moves like a zombie towards nearest game store...)

Ah, yes...the FYI I am a spy clip. It's fun,tried it, works, not for long.
This episode is awesome just like all the others, hope I haven't already posted this forum, can't remember.

Portal is great, so fuck you if you think otherwise.

I know I'm probably never going to get it, but Yahtzee, what's your SteamID? I'd like to play TF2 or Source against you some time, considering I'm in the same timezone.

I hate half life and portal what a load of boring crap make a hole in a wall walk through make a hole in another wall walk through.

Look, we all respect people's opinions, some people will find HL2 boring, I didn't find it boring. This game has high production values and people seem to ignore them, some people say that this game is highly over-rated, it is over-rated in the slightest but not to much.

Portal for me was really fun, I can't believe why people don't like it. Sure, there are some boring areas but that doesn't retract from the experience.

And one more thing for residentsteve:

This game is considered as an excellent piece of game design and manufacture. And no, it is not perfect. No game is. You don't like the game? Wonderful, good for you. You have your own reasons, which are, as far as I can tell, that you don't care for the setting and production design. This doesn't make it a bad game, nor over-rated. That simply means you guys don't like it.

EDIT: I suspect that the people who post why they hate HL2 can be people who think that this game doesn't suit their taste, which makes me to wonder why the hell did they picked it up in the first place. Buying a game without looking it first is a terrible idea...

I say that he chose the correct words for Portal. Team Fortress 2, I would say that as well. Now Half-Life 2 is pretty much a pass time, for me. I can't get past the one car. Can't care now that I moved on. There is one thing I forgot to mention, I am singing the end song to Portal, during the talent show! Thank you.

"this is the most fun you'll have with your PC until they invent a force-feedback codpiece."

Looks like they did that: http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/features_popculture_blog/2008/04/the-ability-to.html

Portal is good. and I'm still laughing.

I dont get it. Who is this new character that everyone acts like they knew?

If you think its Magnusson, thats wrong... He was in half life 1.

I can agree with you on Portal, its an excellent game, and its humour is quite entertaining.

I had to come all the way back here to anounce I finally had the ability to play Portal. I will never look at another game the same way again. How could you make a game better then portal...I can only wish someone does. I am in shock at how good it was. Now just trying to beat those extra levels...

Oh and seriously if you hate Portal, then you are probably too dense to do the puzzles... go back to school and send your parents hate mail for ignoring you as a child.

Yahtzee has to be a Liverpool supporter after that and good on him! Portal does sound great, but.. meh.. I can't really be bothered to start games that enthrall me..

Great jobb on this episode Yahtzee:)

I will DEFINITELY get this when I get an XBox 360.

Simply brilliant. I finally caved in and bought the Orange Box.

The review is a classic, very much like the game itself.

A bit late in coming, but I must agree that there is virtually nothing bad you could possibly say about the game Portal. Though I suppose some people might, MIGHT want to bitch about the whole "homicidal AI uses you as their personal guinea pig in an environment subtly caked over with the corpses of the scientists who made the AI" trope, plot thing. Valid enough as it stands, the way it's used in the game itself is so twisted, hysterical and absolutely wicked in it's dark humor that the "plot-clone" turns out to be a rather tasteful, if not downright cheeky and clever child. A girl at that!

And oh, I L-O-V-E the song "Still Alive". That little b*tch just doesn't know when to quit.

Awesome review
TF2 is great, ep 2 is awesome and portal is absolute genius

Hell yes Portal is the best game ever! I played the demo and I love it!!! Now I have to get the full version because the bloody thing ended just when I got the second prtal gun o__o

I died ump-teen times on half life gave up as a male relitive or friend took over. I loved portal, hard to get my head round the hole different levels and those turrets are just so anoying. My favourate levels are the love cube the last level where the computer spends most of its time telling you not to go that way well I am whether you like it or not so there. Fighting the dangling robotic computer. The little ball things that come out when you hurt it, my fave are the angry one, the cake ingreadients and the one thats always "ohh! whats that? what are you doing?" I also like the noise they make as they burst into flames very amusing.

Lol I always remember that joke halfway through:

Half Life 2
Episode 2
Manchester United 0

XD Hilarious

Portal is an amazing game.

Still on of my Favorites!

Me sir likes your cake refrence with portal

portal is one of the most addicting games i own. i just got the orange box and portal is my favorite game on it, and my favorite game out of all my ps3 games. it is fuckin awesome
