1up: Best 2011 Game We'll Only Play Once

The writing is absolutely brilliant, the puzzles are demanding, and the multiplayer is wonderful. But we don't really have much reason to return to Portal 2 besides simply wading through our favorite jokes again or playing for best times. By no means does that make it a poor game, it's one everyone needs to play. But you really only need to play it once.

The story is too old to be commented.

I agree with the part about people thinking for themselves.

I heard great things about Portal, heard Portal 2 was amazing also. Got it used from Amazon for $20 for Christmas. I gotta tell ya, I usually get the platinum for games and then sell them but I think I'll keep this one.

It makes me actually think, unlike most college classes I take. The physics and all that good stuff are amazing.

20$!? it's like 7 on steam! Seems a bit odd to pick it up used when new it's cheaper. Unless of course you're talking about xbox version... in which case I'm still sure you'd get it cheaper than 20 bucks.

I got the PS3 version...$40 new, I coulda got on gamefly for $15 but already bought from amazon.

i recently played portal 2 and beat it and i agree and disagree with that statement:

Portal 2 is such a great game and i loved every minute of it. I wish i forgot everything about it so i could play it again. But sadly I cant. But what i will probably do is have a 3-5 month play through. Which means every 3-5 months i will beat the story. Hopefully i wont remember the puzzles.... If i do o well the story is awesome!!!!!

I <3 Portal 2!!!

Simply the best game in 2011. Brilliant game

Yeah, sorry, but I disagree. You'd have to play it AT LEAST twice: once by yourself, and once with a friend. The game is very different.

You're counting the singleplayer and co-op as one thing. This article is saying there's no reason to replay the singleplayer or co-op more than once. Sadly, that's one of the problems with puzzle games. As great as they are the point of such games are figuring out what to do... once you've done that that's... pretty much it.

Would you re-do the exact same crossword puzzle you just solved again? No, because you already have the answers.

Thankfully (well, not really... but it has its perks) tho memory is a fickle thing, wait a few years and you'll be able to enjoy Portal again.
