: I would add it to the index, but I just don't know which genre to place it into. Adventure Game
? First-Person Shooter
? Puzzle Game
: Puzzle Game
is best, since that's what it is at heart. You can't add it to Adventure Game
since that would make the Half-Life
series Adventure games as well. If you like, add a First-Person Shooter
index as well.
: Ok, what the hell happened? Both the description, the trope example list and the discussion were radically edited, removing a lot of content, which I can't seem to access through the history of the page. Is there any way to restore it all?

I'm a little bothered by Chell's Name being listed as Johnson. Isn't that just Fanon? Plus she's Hispanic, unless she was adopted it's very unlikely she has that name.
My reasoning for removing the not-very-concise quotation of 'that song': anyone who's played the game already knows the words, and anyone who hasn't
should really first encounter the song in the game itself. QED!
bluefireglow: Isn't "sword" in Latin "gladius?" Or is there more than one way to say it? Does Latin even have words ending in "-os?" I thought that was more Greek's thing...

: So I've got dial-up. And I just bought Portal today. And I just suffered through four hours of getting "Steam" to work, which I don't understand at all. Now it's telling me I have to fucking download the entire game (all 4,000 megabytes of it). So I guess it was too hard to put the damn game on the damn disc?
I don't even want Steam, or anything that would make me go online. Portal is a single-player game. You should not need to go to this much trouble to install a single-player game. For one, you shouldn't need to sign up for an online service made to organize multiplayer games.
What am I, and other dial-up users, supposed to do?
: Wow, folks. I know we all love to go crazy with the Epileptic Trees
and Wild Mass Guessing
, but could we please put it in the right place? We namespace this stuff for a reason. Portal
: How is this a Self Demonstrating Article? It is mentioned as so in the index.
: The article used to be cast in the form of a briefing from GLaDOS, which wouldn't strictly make it a Self Demonstrating Article, but might have caused someone to believe it was. Anyway, I don't think it is one now
