Update: I beat Portal

I think I probably have to do some schoolwork before starting Portal 2... but it's really tempting to just start it right now. But I won't. Probably.

Also, the ending of Portal was really great. Though I had to look up what she says for a lot of that ending part, because I was too focused on running around doing shit to hear all of it. I did hear her taunting me about how my poor Companion Cube wouldn't be attending my hypothetical party, because I murdered it.

Am I allowed to discuss video games here?

Because I finally started playing Portal, on a borrowed Xbox. It's so good! And now I get all the jokes from like ten million internet years ago about the cake being a lie.

I haven't finished it yet though. I'm stuck on level 18. Stuck to the point that I'm debating looking up what to do, but then that feels like cheating and my eventual victory will feel hollow.

ETA: I feel I should add that practically all of my gaming experience has been computer games (and to a lesser extent, Super Nintendo), and therefore I am absolutely godawful at the controls. Makes things tricky. I am constantly falling off things, getting trapped... I'm pretty sure the hardest part of the game is not intended to be jumping onto platforms, but that's like my kryptonite.
