Although I’ve been a heavy gamer for years, I didn’t start computer gaming until very recently with Portal 2 popping my computer/Steam gaming cherry. And holy crap it’s like a whole other world.
I guess I’m a little spoiled because of our Mac Daddy (how we refer to our Mac where we edit the videos). It doesn’t have retina display but the screen is large enough for the game to be so immersive. I guess I’m also late to beautifully designed games like Halo and Skyrim since I’ve never been and Xbox fan, but damn this game is SO PRETTY.
This game is different than most in that it doesn’t involve a first person running around killing other bad people, it’s simply a huge fucking puzzle. I saw somewhere (probably on Tumblr) a phrase that puts it perfectly: “how the fuck am I supposed to get past this room this is fucking impossible (2 hours later) oh wow that was easy I’m an idiot.”
I actually haven’t played the first Portal but I’ve heard that it’s just as good as the second. I’m glad that one of our viewers recommended I play because it’s opened my eyes to a whole new world of gaming beyond a DS or Super Smash Bros. I’ve been considering getting an Xbox too, especially after living with Kasey for a while. You can even ask him, when I was playing Portal 2, nothing else existed in the world – that is until Minecraft came along… but that’s another post entirely.
If there are any other PC games you guys think I should check out, definitely leave them down below – I trust your judgment after so many people recommending Portal 2.
