If you have ever played the first one you would know that this is no ordinary game. its not a multiplayer type game like Call of Duty but playing with a friend can be a great experience. You gather ideas on how to get from one point to the destined by carrying your momentum through a portal you enter and a portal you exit. Honestly, i am not a big fan of console games because most of them are based on the amount of time you invest in them but games like these are sheer genius. Another one of my favorites is Echochrome and of course the more popular Little Big Planet. Unfortunately i have never even played Little Big Planet 2. Games like CoD4 are such a huge waste of time. There is no skill involved. Ive played the game a number of times and honestly it is so unfair. The more you play the better weapons you get. Also if you get on any sort of a kill spree you get some sort of technological advancement that is pretty much a guarantee for more kills. Anyways, Im trying to get Portal 2 right now and am going to probably spend more time playing this game then i will studying for midterms next week. HA! If god wanted me to invest more time into my studies he wouldn't have made Portal 2.
