OMFG PORTAL

I don't normally talk about video games on here. Not for any particular reason, it just never occurred to me to do so.

But Portal. OMFG Portal. I was actually giggling and gasping and reacting. The game was one of the first few to entertain, creep out, amuse and challenge me all at the same time. It just blew me away. And this is even with all the hype which you would think would have killed it for me. I had read all the reviews, heard my friends gush about it before I could play it.

I bought it relatively early on but I couldn't play it on my computer. I had to use my partner's compy instead. Even so the wait was worth it. The game was amazing. I loved every moment of it. The homicidal and crazy computer, the telltale bloody writing in the gun gauntlets, the exceptional dark humor of it all, the genuinely challenging and interesting.

There was one puzzle where I wasn't sure if I was going to make it across and actually started gasping and basically freaking out when I made it. To the point that one of my housemates called down to "get a room" essentially because it apparently sounded like naughty sounds o_O

I was giddy and Lee got such a giant kick out of it too. When I beat the game (and the final part was genuinely challenging and scary with timers) I was so happy that I didn't even mind that my leg had gone numb from poor circulation and being crossed for too long.

Oh wow I just loved the game. And there were totally lesbian undertones in there. GLaDOS wanted Chell, in her crazy way. AND THE PHYSICS. OMFG THE PHYSICS. Sometimes I just fired two portals over each other and jumped through them to fall forever. Or fired portals in interesting places to make things fly through them or jump up and down using gravity for kicks. Oh wow it was just so much damn fun.

The game was brilliant and I don't normally say that.

No seriously, I'm a whiny complainer. I always find something to bitch about in a game. Sometime that yanks me out of the environment or annoys me. Portal did not do this. Not once. I was sucked in so much that I couldn't stop playing for food until Lee dragged me off the computer.

And the ending song and credits. Oh wow. Oh my. Hehehehee, I loved that game.

Seriously. Especially the Pi one. These shirts are made of delicious win and I want want want them both. Even though I should be getting more pants. And I'm still unemployed.

But I want them!
