I've been enjoying video games since I was a kid on the Apple II and Nintendo. After graduating I've had a bit more time to play them, enjoying both the Wii and Xbox 360; having played a few wonderful games this year. However, if you have the time and a system that can, you need to play Portal. The game was short but it was funny, original, and required you to think outside the box. There was something wonderful about jumping off an impossible ledge to launch yourself up to a higher ledge. The guys at Penny Arcade have summed it up nicely (caution: coarse language). Not only is it a great game, it has a great song (warning: spoilers).
