I recently purchased the excellent Half Life Orange Box game collection. This great disc contains:
- Half Life 2
- Half Life 2 Episode 1
- Half Life 2 Episode 2
- Team Fortress 2
Whilst each of these are fantastic games, I feel I had to make a post about Portal. If you haven’t played it yet, then I strongly advise you do! It is one of the best and most original games of the year. Whilst it is fairly short, it is something you will want to play over and over again!
Now, I’m not going to give away the ending here (I don’t want to spoil it for you), but there is a great song during the credits that deserves a mention! Here is a video containing the song (song only, no ending sequence) and lyrics for you to copy and print out.
Portal Song – Still Alive
Portal Song Lyrics – Still Alive
This was a triumph.
I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there’s no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.
I’m not even angry.
I’m being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we’re out of beta.
We’re releasing on time.
So I’m GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.
Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you’ll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa
THAT WAS A JOKE.
HAHA. FAT CHANCE.
Anyway, this cake is great.
It’s so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
when there’s Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I’m not you.
I’ve experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.
And believe me I am still alive.
I’m doing Science and I’m still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I’m still alive.
While you’re dying I’ll be still alive.
And when you’re dead I will be still alive.
