Help a noob plzz

Hi Guys,
I just registered and i’m thinking of getting gmod,
I got some questions. (I no their noobish)

  1. Are all sources the same like is portal better than counter strike?
  2. Is portal a good source?
  1. sources? You mount games, they arn’t all necessary, but CS:S is the most recommended game you should have. Most custom maps people make for Gmod is made with CS:S textures.
  2. Portal is not very necessary but its pretty cool to have portal props in gmod.

Get either counter-strike source or Orange Box AND counter strike source. I prefer the second idea.

cs looks good.
