The first time I had in my hands PORTAL was the Orange Box PC version after playingthe remaining chapters of Half-Life 2, I started to play Portal without much enthusiasm,but the dynamics and additive gameplay got me, the first time it took me about 2 weeks to finish it ... I've played a total of 8 times for PC and version 1 time for The Orange Boxfor PS3 .. and always seemed very special to me as games and as the idea .. some research I learned that the original idea had been a small developer called "MONKEYSOFTWARE NUCLEAR" and was a princess who was to escape a maze prison ... Ithink that what belonged to the company they now work VALVE I leave you with a videoof the original game called "Narbacular Drop
(excuse my English)

I would place a portal to take me to a room full of different portals.  Each portal would go to a different continent.  Some portals would be altenate universes as well it would be like the show "Sliders" without me being lost in altrenate dimensions and having a way back all of the time.

I would have the portal gun to take me to school instantly and to have a bunch of portals to link me around the world. Then I would make the ultim ate lunch pad to shoot me into the water. With the protals I can make a something like a rollercoster and would take me around the world as well, so basically a ride that goes around the world! Why would I do all of this? Well it will be just friggin awesome!

I think I would have the portal gun take me directly from my house to work, despite the fact that I live less than 10 minutes FROM work. Perhaps I'm just lazy, or I'm tired of my garage door from not closing correctly. At least if I could just portal to work, I could procrastinate even more, which ultimately I'd still be a few minutes late as always.

 

I asked my roommate what he would do. He said he'd put a portal on the wall next to his chair in the living room, and a portal on the inside of the refrigerator door, so he could just reach through and grab a beer without getting up -_-.

Oly would have a portal that goes into the stall of a women's bathroom. Probably in the toilet itself, not thinking of the unspeakable things that will fly out at him from his portal. Or the amount of women with male genitalia.

I would build a portal inside a portal so I could portal through portals while I played Portal and then I would portal into the future where I won the Portal 2 giveaway and I'd continue to portal through portals while wearing a portal tshirt and playing Portal 2. 

hmm

Given the chance to obtain Portal technology, I'd have a tough time not going straight to a bank vault...but honestly, who can hide a portal in a vault? That stuff would be found and connected to you lickity-split!

 

No, after careful deliberation the best possible option would be one Portal in the office (got to earnz the monies!) and the second would be on some coastal island....facing my grass hut (so as to also double as a nice panorama pic while in the office!)

 

Having work one step away from a coastal breeze, where sun bakes the tan lines of fine bikini's!

 

 

...kinda depressing while sitting here in the office, looking for my Coastal Portal

If I could have a portal take me anywhere it would be to the
Valve headquarters and Gabe Newell’s office. I’d then pester him until he gave
me information on half life 3. I would then ask him why the sudden love for ps3
after his hate for it in the early years haha.

Well, I hate to the one to say it, but I'd have a portal take me to the vault in places where there is money!  I've been working since 16 and I'm 23 right.  God I am tired of working.  I want to know how people can take it working for 40 years.  You get 2 days a week off, and your so tired after working all you can do is sleep!  I have NO social life at all, because of my full time job.  If I had a portal gun, I'd go to right down to Atlantic City, shoot it at the wall of one of the many casinos, and just FILL my pockets with cash.  Maybe go to the bank and take a couple of withdrawls. Get those keys of a really nice Camaro or Challenger from the snooty car dealership on RT.22 near me.  What a fun day it would be.  I could travel the world and just spend spend spend.  And Relax  😀  It'd be like hitting the lottery if I had that Portal Gun.

 

OOOO just thought.  Maybe I could be a SUPERVILLIAN.  But you know not the crazy kind, more like the "ooo this guy again" ones.

I don't wanna hurt anybody here, I'm not a bad guy.  I'm just a lazy guy.

I would use the Portal (or is it just 'portal'…?) gun to circumvent doors. That's right. One on the wall as I enter and one on the floor as I exit. Who needs doors when you have futuristic priceless technology? Not me!

Or I'd sneak into the TARDIS and put up an orange portal in David Tenant's closet (…Tenant was the old Doctor…? Then who… Some jackass with a bow tie…? What… *shrugs*) and the blue portal in my closet…that way I could secretly swap my clothes for Tenant's wardrobe of classy casual suits and white converse…oh and I could totally travel in time and save the world and stuff…I guess…

 

EDIT: BARROWMANNNNNNNNNN!!!

if i had a portal gun nine months ago i would used to prevent my only real relationship so far from braking up, short story version is she moved to another country with her parents and we both believe in long distance relationships are bad relationships, but if i had a portal gun i would obviously used to make a portal in front of her and my house so we can just visit us like we were still neighbors :(

 

but today if i had a portal gun i probably use it on disasters like the one in japan, making portal so everyone can evacuate to safer ground or making portal inside destroyed buildings for rescue teams go in  or even as a method of transporting aid packages faster

and while a use portals for both those things i would also use it for magically transport Ferrari's, cash machines, etc to my garage cool

I would probably just use the portals for my own convenience... for example, I would place one portal, say, at my job, then the other one at my house, so I could easily get from place to place. I would also use the portals in some kind of show, so people could gaze in awe at the magnificence of my portals...

 

So, uh, yeah...

I would most likely have a portal take me to the grocery store.  Sounds pretty lame I know, but to be able to have instant access to food when I have the munchies....epic.  There'd probably be a few other portals to places like McDonalds, Starbucks....stuff like that.  Maybe one to the Playboy Mansion.  Actually scratch all the other ones, the Playboy Mansion it is.  Awesome.

I'm sorry, please disregard my previous post as a 'guest' called Babelfish112 . I did not realise that I had to be a PS3Blog member to be eligible to win 😮   
But now i'm a member, so read this entry please! Thank you :)

 

Sitting in this isolated test chamber with my back against the rusty wall, I feel the
chill of loneliness down my spine. The portal gun is starting to hurt my wrist,
so I take it off and place it beside me on the grey tiles of the floor. I wish
I could just shoot a portal that leads out of this place, out into freedom
where no one will startle me with threats and cynical jokes about my death.
I’ve had enough. Please let me go GLaDOS. I don’t want the cake anymore. I just
want to live.
