Hi guys and gals. I'm looking to expand my game library, and need some opinions to help me decide between two courses of action:

1) Buy Portal 2 and enjoy it

- or -

2) Buy Withcher (from GOG), Syberia and Syberia 2 for less than Portal and wait for Portal to go on sale.

Please give me some feedback

"Those satisfactions are permanent..."

Both Portal 2 and The Witcher are amazing, but if you have to choose, I'd say pick The Witcher+Syberia+Syberia 2 now, and wait for a sale for Portal 2. You'll get more play time that way.

I bought the Witcher from GOG not too long ago, amazing game. It's really slow through the first 2 chapters but you become steadily addicted to it as well.

Portal is amusing but I don't think it'd give you the amount of game play you'd get with the other option I guess.

Time wise, maybe not. The quality of that time is second to none, though. Quality over quantity in this case. The multiplayer is fun, too.
