ART OF THE WEEK | Why You Should Play (or Replay) the Portal Series – Cornell University The Cornell Daily Sun

I know its been a while since the games releases and Portal mechanics are no longer new in the world of video games but its definitely time to play (or replay) the Portal games. Once the first round of prelims are over, be sure to hop back on these classics and enjoy some good ol Portal physics as you jump, bounce or zoom through these levels. If youre not convinced yet, here are some reasons why you should return to Aperture and voluntarily risk your health and safety as a human lab experiment. (This article contains some spoilers, but hopefully they entice you into playing the game).

1. Cake

Who doesnt love cake? Every good human guinea pig knows that passing those levels is hard work, especially since you have to lug a mind-bending and heavy portal gun around the rooms. Thats why in the first Portal game youll get a great reward! Not only do you get the satisfaction of knowing youre somewhat smart (or persistent) enough to finish all the puzzle levels of the game, you also get a delicious slice of cake at the very end! Isnt that wonderful?

2. Wheatley

Ah, Wheatley. Truly one of the most memorable voices of the small cast of characters in the Portal series. Hes a great guy, really. Just listening to him tell you what to do is a good enough reason to play the game again.

3. Potato GLaDOS

Bosses usually take on a second form, where theyre stronger, tougher and smarter than before. Not in this game. Instead, shes been turned into a potato part way into the single player story mode of Portal 2. Literally.
