11. Portal

Portal01

It ain't no Rubik's Cube

Just when you thought developers couldn’t get more inventive with the first-person shooter genre, along comes Valve with another game that will probably never make it to a trilogy: Portal.

Shooting aliens between the eyes is fun, but who knew teleportation could be just as exhilarating? Portal tasks you with solving a series of challenging puzzles with nothing but a portal gun. This unique weapon creates two portals that allow you to move great distances in the blink of an eye. Quite handy, especially if you’re on your couch watching reruns of The Walking Dead, and you’re too lazy to walk the vast gulf separating your living room and kitchen for a can of cold beer straight from the fridge.

Portal02

Go ahead... push the cube... you know you want to!

But Portal is not just about the puzzles. It has great physics, amusing characters, and a terrific villain in GLaDOS. The game’s innovative gimmick drew players to the game out of curiosity, but they stayed for its excellent execution and unforgettable universe.

And now we have another part 3 to pine for. Come on Valve, throw the dog a bone, here!
