Where is all the love for The Orange Box?

#1al_ien5000Posted 7/12/2011 8:03:51 AM
In games that people are still talking about years after there release, the usual suspects come up. Uncharted, Resistance, Ratchet, Metal Gear Solid 4, Demon's Soul.

While I love all of those games, it is surprising that people don't recommend The Orange Box enough. Why is this?

I know the loading times are a little long, but that shouldn't keep people from playing this outstanding title!

The Orange Box = Bayonetta

Mostly that.

I completely agree. Half Life 2 and Portal are still amazing games to this day. And Team Fortress 2 is a really fun game, although it's nearly dead now, plus it runs at a miraculous 15 FPS.

It's probably because you can buy the games separately now, so most people just recommend their favourite rather than the whole collection.

maby because The Orange Box is a terrible broken port on the ps3. Everyone has those games on their PC anyways

All the love is on the PC version.

I could not imagine playing Orange Box on anything other than a PC.
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

I have it and enjoy Portal and Half Life 2, but TF2 is basically dead.
