I beat single player in six hours, but I haven't played the coop, so who knows.

For me, what you got out of the game, as far as how enjoyable the game is, has a much greater effect for determining the worth of a game.

By no means did I intend for you to feel as though I was implying you were ignorant. We are all gamers, so of course bringing in other games you enjoy is acceptable. Sorry if I offended you.
You didn't offend me, I was just in a mood at work. I apologize if it seemed as though I was upset about your question. One thing that does bother me is when people say you cant compare one game type to another. You can if you bring it to a simple context as enjoyability.

My point was that though I did enjoy the game, it doesn't offer the same level of enjoyment later on. To me, a games worth is very hard to define. One thing that I game some games worth is if a friend comes over, and sees an old game that I am playing that they haven't heard of, and want a copy of it, its worth increases. But if I play portal with a friend, and beat it, and they ask if thats it, and decide its not worth the money, that detracts from a games worth.

That being said, its not the same for everyone, people like different genres for different reasons. I for one am hard pressed to play anything SP because it bores me. I like being able to talk with others, joke, and make new online friends while enjoying the gaming experience with them. So I guess you could say that MP holds a bit of a spot in my gaming heart which could jade my outlook on games.

All are my favorite movies ever, but I don't want to watch them over and over. They are more enjoyable to "relive" every once in awhile.

Replayability is definately a plus, but no single player game I've ever played has that much to replay. So in all honesty the game is well worth $50 (i bought for ps3 just to have both) if you enjoy singleplayer. And this is coming from a guy who only buys games with multiplayer.
When I look at SP, I look at games like Kotor, You can replay them and get a completely different experience than the first time, because the game is designed to change with different choices. Had something similar been implemented in Portal 2 where when you went back to play, some of the levels were new that you hadn't seen before, this would make the game more enjoyable form a replay standpoint.

I wont delve into your choice in movies, but I if I like something, I want to see it more than a few times. I remember seeing "Toy's" the robin williams movie a 100 times in a few years. I still enjoy watching it to this day, not as often but it still appeals to me. After finishing portal 2 co op, I am left wanting more, it just went too quickly. As I said above, that if things would change up a bit the second time, that would be different. Hunting for easter eggs just isn't enough. When compared to Portal, the progression of the game was completely different than portal 2 co op. I didnt find hidden rooms where there were scratchings on the wall of "the cake is a lie" and such. It just seemed a marathon of puzzles which, I did enjoy (mostly the witty "blue is doing all the work" comments).

I guess to each their own.

The maps are set in such a way that you need all 4 portals to complete them. Some people have figured out shortcuts but for the most part, its about teamwork.

I just don't think that a game using an engine from 2004 is worth the full price :/
sad that everyone has become graphics whores. no wonder we don't get any good games these days.
