What You Missed By Not Playing PORTAL and PORTAL 2 (SPOILERS!)

by on October 1, 2013

Look, not everyone has the time or the inclination to play each and every video game out there. Lord knows, it’s not like you could just pop Portal on and do a quick run-through the way you’d play Dots, even if it IS relatively short. But that’s why our friend Joshua Quail makes his What You Missed By Not Playing…. series of videos, and this time around, he has Portal and Portal 2 reduced to the essentials. Got no idea who Chell is? Does GLaDOS not ring a bell? Want to know the significance of the Weighted Companion Cube and how cake and potatoes figure into it all? Watch, learn, enjoy.
