Is portal 1 good looking enough? I'm kind of spoiled with all this dx10/11 stuff lately. XD.
I've got it sitting in my cart right now..lol..
Here's a 1080p gameplay video of it..
Idk.. I'm on the fence.. But when I went back and played the original half life recently I thought it was sooo worth it..
I think I'm going to follow that rule and get portal 1, as Valve has not yet failed to please me in that regard.
Also either I'm wrong or buying portal and portal 2 separately, due to the deals, will actually save you like 5 bucks..lol..
