I really, really like the Portal games. Great gameplay, writing, replay value.

Portal was first published on October 10, 2007. (4843 days ago. )

Portal 2, possibly the perfect sequel, arrived on April 18, 2011, nearly a decade ago. (3557 days)

The covid lockdown for me is 305 days from March 13, 2020.

In a perfect world, we would have at least 11.662 “Portal 2 – quality” games by now, or maybe 15.887 “Portal quality” games since it first arrived in the orange box.

Let’s see…games that have caught my eyeballs and brain over the last 13 years, generally the full pack/GOTY editions, after patches fixed the janky aspects of most games

Can I pull 13 out of my brain?

Fallout (incl f3, f4, nv, skyrim)
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Red Dead Redemption and RDR2
Little Big Planet
Plants vs Zombies
Far Cry series 3+
Grand Theft Auto:V
Marvel’s Spider-man
Animal Crossing New Horizons

Not too bad! Some of those games I could (and have) played for hundreds of hours. I would say that of those Fallout and Minecraft have held my interest the most, but Xcom and Skyrim come close. Are any of them as “perfect” as Portal? I don’t know. For me, I have had a lot of fun with games over the years. If I were to reach back to before Portal…. I could probably get at least a solid early entry going back to my first introduction to them with the Atari or Odyssey.

To whom it may concern – I pose this question – what are some of your favorite games that have come out since Portal? What is a game you would happily come back to even now?
