Cake anyone?

We just finished Portal.

What an amazingly awesome game. The gameplay, the writing, the design, the ending (omg the ending): it was all excellent, but I think my very favorite part might be that the player character and the villain were both female, and not for any particular reason. Yay.

Also, I finally understand the song now.

So, when's the next one?

I think Portal 2 is coming out really soon actually! I can't wait, since the first one was so awesome.

It only takes a couple/few hours, so it's actually a great game for limited distraction.

Is it canon that the PC is female? I'm on the last level, so I haven't beaten it yet, but I can't remember anything yet that says so.

The player character is female. If you look through a portal where you can see yourself, it's pretty clear.

I agree about the distraction factor! It's probably the shortest game I've ever played.

OH, right, I do remember that! For some reason, maybe because I'm female, I didn't even notice that she was. Maybe I thought the game was reading my gender somehow. :P

We loved this game and the kids were signing the song for weeks afterwards. :)
