Early 20s
I love RPGs, Adventure games, Platformers, RTS- ah screw it, I enjoy pretty much most genres out there, so long as the games themselves are good.

Besides games, I love Tarentino movies, and I try to keep up with the fantasy genre when I read books (Though lately A song of Ice and Fire has pretty much taken over my life).

I play games on every major platform , except the 360 since mine died a couple years back.

This entry's a triumph
I'm making a note here:
Huge success.

Title: Portal
Developed and Published by: Valve
Original Release Date: October 9th 2007 (As part of the Orange Box)
Platform: PC, Xbox 360, PS3

Do I really need to say anything about this?

Portal is like the Song of Ice and Fire of video games. It's an epic tale of Betrayal, Cake, Lies, Deadly Neurotoxins and Cubicide.

Ok, maybe that was a bit exaggerated. Let's start again, yes?

Portal is puzzle game where you use interconnected portals (duh) to move around ever more difficult test chambers under the watchful, helpful, encouraging and oh so honest supervision of  GLaDOS, the not-at-all homicidal and only mildly passive-aggressive AI in charge of Aperture Science.

It is also one of the funniest games to have graced us this past decade, and it achieves this without any profanity, any gross-out toilet jokes and one (okay, 2 if you count the talking turrets) speaking role. If you've played Portal (or Portal 2, which is also very good), you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, then please, stop reading this and go play Portal. This game can run on a potato nowadays and is dirt cheap, so there are no more excuses not to experience this.

Also, best ending credits ever.

And speaking of Memetastic games...


This game is awesome, and I was going to include it in my top 8, but then I took an arrow to the knee...
No wait! Please, I didn't mean to-I'm sorry!
