Good news everybody! It’s finally Friday! Thank you God, Vishnu, Allah, Buddha and any other deity that wants to claim it! In fact, I’m calling it. This was a triumph. I’m making a note here: huge success! It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction. If those past few sentences seemed familiar, it could be because they’re the opening verse to Still Alive – the end credit song of 2007’s cult classic (and source one of the most famous memes out there) – Portal. Check out the trailer below courtesy of ValveVideos on YouTube.
Portal is essentially a First Person Puzzle game. You could say it’s a shooter, because technically I suppose you are firing a gun. It’s just not what you’d call a conventional gun. Portal though is a game requiring thought and quick reflexes and ends up having a delicious little plot twist as you approach the end.
Portal is laced with a vein of humor throughout though. From the twisted machinations of GLaDOS to the oddly cute sounding turrets. Especially the very catchy song during the end credits, which – come on I know those of you who have played will want to listen to. Check it out courtesy of OTG on YouTube.
