Oh. I see, you don't want realistic answers. Ok.

Yeah I think it must be a creative move. That or they want more focus on portal use.

Maybe one of the details you should've observed is there's a turret that will shoot you.

This is probably to encourage active observation and portal usage.
I think they have balanced movement speed with chamber dimensions quite well.

probably, but I found myself spamming jump to move a little faster regardless

I can understand that when we are trying to complete achievements. But I still think the first playthrough should be done slowly and in depth.

nah, the designers intentionally did not put much detail into the environment to focus on making portals work well.

VALVe do all with detail. And nothing is made accidentaly. All have a reason in-game.

"[Nick Maggiore] Early versions of Portal featured more detailed, cluttered environments, much like Half Life 2. We quickly realized that unnecessary objects scattered all over the place distracted players to the point where it actually interfered with the portal training process. So we simplified the art style to favor clean, focused test chambers. The modular approach we settled on makes it look plausible that the chambers can reform dynamically on these pistons."

Hmm probably because I dont want to spam the jump button over and over just to escape a turret thats shooting me?


Don't step or go in front of them. Simple. :) Use your portal to eliminate it or put you behind it.I think thats why you are slow a little, to force the player to use the portals to avoid or kill turrets.
