Originally posted by marchettaanthony:"I think she was less subtle in Portal 1 because she was hiding the fact that she was going to kill you. In Portal 2, you already knew she wanted you dead, so she didn't have to be subtle. At least that's what I think."I think you're right. In Portal 2 she's basically toying with you and torturing you before she kills you. The morality core also has a lot to do with it. When the morality core is destroyed Portal 1 GLaDOS sounds an awful lot like Portal 2 GLaDOS.
Originally posted by ihaveathumb:I didn't even think of the personality cores. That is a good point. Perhaps they stopped her from vocalizing her true intentions.
Originally posted by marchettaanthony:She's had a LONG time to think, and she knows exactly what she wants: Not just to kill you, but to make you her permanent play thing, her lab rat. She's completely in control of herself. At the end of Portal 1 she could act freely but considering the circumstances around her she had basically gone insane by the end. The Portal 2 GLaDOS is much more prepared, and that's one of the big differences.
