Ah, this is being investigated simultaneously by 4chan and SomethingAwful. It's like harnessing the collective will of mankind, but unfortunately only for a limit of about 3 hours a day when they're not all watching hentai.

I don't give a crap about Mac BUT that's practically like giving Linux support, which means I just might finally ditch Windows forever. :D
Yeah. I was thinking this exact same thing too.

Bullshit in italics.

Stop what you're doing right now and go play Portal. It's not that long - a decent FPS gamer should be able to handle it in about 4-5 hours, and every second of it is awesome.

SRSLY, if you haven't beaten portal you are in the same category as those who have not seen the Matrix or StarWars or don't know what AYBABTU is all about.

I appreciate Portal on a strictly intellectual level.

Link distant related. Let only games with hands on convince you.
Nothing else. Do not divide your attention on advertisements, instead search for games nearly nobody else knows. That way i found Spring.

i think mines broken, there arent any enemies

but seriously games like this don't offer a challenge per se, you aren't pitted against anything that requires a significant amount of twitch skill, or even a human opponent; you are in competition with yourself to use your problem solving abilities... which i find in my life at least are tested enough on a day to day basis.

not to diss the game either; i just don't have any motivation to play it because i don't think it will be satisfying for me to complete; i'd rather be headshottin' nubs.

everyone can beat a single player game... the true challenges come when you are pitted against another human!

You are one of the "Gamers" I have to make exceptions for when I try to make generalizations about Gamer culture... like jocks who play sports based video games and when my dad used to play WarCraftII and Wolfenstein 3D... Or my wife who can still sit down and beat Super Mario 3 and all the Sonic Games yet just doesn't "get it".

I'm not going to convince you with this but the point of a single player game like Portal is the same as watching a good movie.

It's not about waving your e-peen or practicing your twitch. It's about playing an amazing game that's not only beautiful and creative, but is full of amazing mechanics and awesome puzzles. And in some of the cases, you do need to be quick. :>

twitch skill
If we are to value that, then truly humanity is doomed. Unless SMBC is right...
