Portal [Game]  
I don't know how many of you know the game Portal.

The game primarily comprises a series of puzzles that must be solved by teleporting the player's character and simple objects using "the handheld portal device", a device that can create inter-spatial portals between two flat planes. The player-character, Chell, is challenged by an artificial intelligence named GLaDOS (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System) to complete each puzzle in the Aperture Science Enrichment Center using the portal gun with the promise of receiving cake when all the puzzles are completed.

(No, it wasn't the cake-thing that made me curious. Nope.)

Actually it was my brother who bought The Orange Box and unlike him, I was more interested in Portal than the other two games included. *grins*

And just a few days ago I found on Quiet Earth a Live Action Short Film by Dan Trachtenberg.

From there it wasn't far to another awesome short film.

Now all that's missing is an actual movie about it... xD

Haha, I've not played Portal myself, but I've whiled away a few hours watching one of my best friends attempting the same level over and over before shouting at the game :)

It's an interesting game, but GLaDOS is bloody annoying!

GLaDOS is not annoying. She is incredibly well-written, and one of the best video-game characters of this generation(that's not only personal opinion).
Play the game(s) by yourself before judging it!

Not allowed a personal opinion any more?

A personal opinion based on watching your friend playing the same level, over and over again. Did you ever stop to think that, maybe, GLaDOS was annoying to you because you were forced to hear her say the same dialogue over and over again, due to your friend not being abble to finish that part and go on?
And even if that wasn't the case, GLaDOS' dialogue and characterisation gets progressively batter during the game. You shouldn't judge her by a single scene.

That's why I said to play the game(s) by yourself.

Clearly nothing I say will dissuade you from thinking the only reasoning I have for not liking a character is because I've not played the game personally.

It's the voice that annoys me, not the characterisation.

My son has moved on to Portal 2 and plays it constantly. His little brother keeps yelling at him for a turn. Thankfully they're back in school and I can have some peace for a few hours.
