If you are serious gamer, it’s unlikely that you haven’t already played Portal, one of the more innovative games to come out in the last few yearsâ€¦ still, high-end gaming rig creator Alienware has teamed up with the popular game downloading platform Steam to offer machines with Steam pre-installed, along with a free copy of Portal, which I can personally recommend as a great game with a style and gameplay that is all its own. Take a look at a Portal trailer below:
Don’t be fooled, the inclusion of Steam is not crapware, Steam is the largest game distribution platform for PCs to date, giving players access to some 980+ games. If you are a serious gamer, having Steam pre-installed on your new Alienware machine means just one less step before you can get your game on, and getting a free copy of a highly regarded game isn’t so bad either.
