The Dedicated Gamer: Portal

Some people enjoy gaming as a favorite pastime while others simply cannot resist taking their obsession to the next level. The Dedicated Gamer is about the passionate, talented, and sometimes flat out psycho people who love their video games and find interesting and impressive ways to express that eternal adoration. Whether it’s through confectionery delights, cosplay, or specialized crafts, all of these gamers have one thing in common: they’re nothing if not dedicated.

  1. <3 the case mods. Particularly the Aperture Science one. Hell, all of these are pretty cool.

      <3 the cake mods

  2. G4M3SL4Y3R says:

    Wow, the cake is a lie! i’d remember that (just started up the game again a week or two ago!)

    too bad my pc aint holding it, at the first boss (the large one hanging on the ceiling with these eyes you need to destroy) my pc tilted and rebooted over and over :(

    Awesome game, and nice pics! :)

    • Randew says:

      actually, not only is that the first boss, its the last boss too. In fact: its the only boss… there are probably lots of youtube videos if you wanted to just cheat to watch the ending.

      • Err says:

        I hope that he didn’t read that. Srsly. Wtf are you doing ruining a dramatic ending? _O

        • Daryo says:

          I wouldn’t call that ruining it. He didn’t say what happens. Also, if you’ve played through that much game and think that’s the “first” boss, maybe a point in the right direction is a good thing

        • General Vagueness says:

          Regarding some of the first posts, originally there was going to be almost 1/3 more gameplay where you find your way out and… well we don’t know what else really. They’re probably retooling those story elements for Portal 2.

    • Mat says:

      Also, he did say he’s been playing for two weeks and has only just gotten there.

  3. snotwoogle says:

    Id soo buy this stuff

  4. soulofaqua says:

    aww some cute costumes I haven’t seen yet >w<

    • bs angel says:

      I hadn’t seen any of the costumes before I did this article either. Super cute!

      • Ryan says:

        Not a massive fan of portal but some of these are pretty cool. And the first costume is soooo cute!! =D

  5. Visitor at home says:

    Brilliant. Slightly creepy, but still brilliant.
    Seriously, where do you find this stuff?

  6. Das Kalk says:

    Nice, I am getting a tattoo at the end of the month, it’s the marathon Symbol :)

    • Dragnew says:

      That is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever heard. You, sir, are what we like to call a winner.

  7. Ragingterror says:

    Those case mods are slick. Do want.

  8. LAZR Blade 14 says:

    I like the 4th to last one.

  9. mysterioso2006 says:

    I officially name this the best thread I’ve ever seen on this site! I’d name a fav, but I like every single one!

  10. LordOsiris says:

    Fucking Amazing. All of them.

  11. Downandout says:

    I want that companion cube rubiks cube now, its brilliant =]

  12. skibur says:

    Not a Portal fan, but this stuff was pretty cool.
    That last one ruined it for me, though.

  13. GeneralCupcakes says:

    I’m making a note here — HUGE SUCCESS

  14. Mace Windex says:

    Too bad the tattoo reads like “LOVE” and “LLES”

  15. Rhamsey says:

    i want that portal gun so bad.

    • Engineer says:

      I wonder if there’s a button to alternate the colors from blue to, well, you know.

  17. setters says:

    woah – they are all fantastic!!

    massive want on the knitted and crocheted companion cubes – so i can see at least 2 new projects coming up :)

  18. deora says:

    i really want the apature PC case. PLEASE?

  19. Bleachy says:

    I want the girl dressed as the Weithed Companion Cube in my bed right fucking now.

  20. Arbiter_of_culture says:

    Let it go guys. It took long enough for this stupid meme to die.

  21. chris says:

    ehh, its an awesome game, but short and not very replayable. in that respect, the more you see of people taking it too seriously, the more creations and the more bandwaggon-hopping, it almost becomes like a movie that sold out to franchising. it’s everywhere, the “cake is a lie” became the fastest failing joke ever after its extreme overuse in forum posting and blog commenting. the more I see of it the less I like it.

  22. steve says:

    I really really want those shoes.

    Those are amazing.

  23. hazzaa says:

    i <3 companion cube

  24. hazzaa says:

    seriously want the portal gun, its awesome

  25. Andrew says:

    Cool, I want that cake!

  26. . says:

    All of them but the sushi one is nice looking.

  27. Anonymous says:

    That last girl is not wearing a damn thing under that costume.

  28. PussyMonster says:

    I want the girl in the last pic. Could you email me her phone number?

  29. piepiepie says:

    i have never played this game before i just used my stumble upon button and it took me here for some reason…the cakes look really good though(if i had to choose between a box that means love and a cake that means lies I’d probably pick the cake)

  30. piepiepie says:

    ha ha i probably would too

  31. Jackie says:

    Well, you’d be disappointed, because the cake is THE lie.

  32. Navanafti says:

    The fifth one is the coolest case mod I’ve seen in a long time.

  33. Keegan says:

    The Aperture Science Computer is AWESOME.

    Compainion Cube = Overrated.

  34. mcnaryxc says:

    Hey, thanks for putting my case mod on here. Mine is the 5th one down on the list with the CCube stuck on top. I entered the case mod into a CPU Mag contest but got 2nd to Boddaker with the famous BSG case mod. It’s my first mod so I’m glad you guys like it. THE CAKE IS A LIE!!! XD

    • bs angel says:

      I would say it deserved first! Great job. :)

  35. mcnaryxc says:

    Thanks! I appreciate it! :o)

  36. That Last Girl says:

    Here’s a pic of an awesome Chell.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/gingingray/3739933969/

    She made that plush turret herself! It even supports itself on its little legs!

  37. mcnaryxc says:

    Found this Portal mod for Xbox 360.

    • bs angel says:

      That’s pretty awesome. Thanks for the link!

  38. Steven Shannon says:

    Freaking awsome the solid aluminum one is the one that I made. I sent about 40 of them to Valve software. Sweet!

  39. Myranii says:

    Here’s a pic of a little WCC I made in ceramics, I carved the design out of a cube, fired it, then painted it. I also have a larger one, no pic as of yet, also made from clay, then painted ^.^

    • bs angel says:

      That is so cute!! You did a great job on it. :)
