Update: Thanks for sending in your wonderful emails with thoughts on Portal 1, you're all the best. You can watch the full discussion below with Ben Hanson, Kyle Hilliard, Ben Reeves, and new video editor Leo Vader. We hope you enjoy the conversation!

With the next rapid-fire entry in our ongoing GI Game Club series, we're taking a look back at 2007's Portal. Not Portal 2, just the original Portal. Several Game Informer editors are going to play through the game and talk about it in exhaustive detail on the next episode of The Game Informer Show podcast airing on June 7th. We're looking for your input. This is a great opportunity to go beyond the "Portal is brilliant" over-simplification and really dig into the how and why of the tiniest details on what makes the first Portal special. Please send in your focused and specific thoughts on what details stand out to you about Portal to podcast@gameinformer.com. Let's all find something new to say about this game.

Portal is cheap on Steam, available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in the Orange Box, and backwards compatible with the Xbox One.
