Can I Portal while drunk?

Farming simulator is better.

Just $27.99 for an agro-euphoric experience.

No. All of those positive reviews are lying.

Fucking this. Portal was just a gimmick. Farming simulator delivers real, dynamic gameplay.

I wonder how much money they've made out of people buying it ironically? Quite a bit, I'd wager.

I really wonder who thought it would be a good idea. Can you imagine spending your 9-5 designing a game like this?

Maybe it wasn't quite as boring as you'd think. The physics are apparently quite hilarious.

I don't mean boring. I just think it's surreal that 20 years ago 80% of the population of the US were farmers, and today some people spend the majority of their time working on simulating farming systems for recreational gamers, developing competitive tractor, barn, and crop graphics. You'd need some odd sense of humor to find purpose in that.

Ok, it was actually higher, 90%.

For storytelling and setting it delivers, methinks. As for actual gameplay, while it was fun being able to play around and solve puzzles with a gun that fires stargates. You may find that the game is pretty linear after awhile. I say wait for the game to get marked down during a sale which should probably be around $10 or $5 now. Hell, get the package which consists of Portal and Portal 2 for around that price.

that still doesnt mean 90% of the population, but that is a lot of framers.

It starts out pretty fun, but once you get the hang of things the puzzles become sort of predictable. Sudoku presents more of a logical challenge when you get down to it.
