I am here to debate in favor of the sequel to the first Portal game. After my opponent has stated his position I will start the next round giving my reasons on why Portal 2 is better than Portal. Then my opponent will give his argument and so on.
I will now wait for my challenger!

Um, okay that is a little confusing but I guess I will start.
I think that Portal 2 made some great improvements over the original. First of all, the game is much longer than the original and has much more content. The first one only had the original nineteen test chambers and the second half of going through the facility to find and battle with Glados which all took me about four 4 to beat. The second one had many more test chambers this time with there being over forty of them throughout the course of the nine chapters in the story. It took me about 10 hours to beat and I have not even tried the co op mode. Portal 2 also introduced more game mechanics such as the discouragement beam and the conversion, repulsion, and propulsion gels.

I assume this means he has no argument against my statement and this is the final round so I have nothing else to say.

I personally prefer Portal 1. It's a much more compact, polished experience, and while Portal 2 may have more content you can't really beat 1's fantastic puzzles and side-splitting humor. 2's approach to both is blunt, and while that may be more accessible to the masses, 1 would have to take the cake (no pun intended).

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct for the forfeits. Con seemed to not know what he was doing, here, trying to take the "pro" position. But Pro put forth a case, and Con did not respond. Thus, arguments to Pro. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
