I guess I'm the oddball. I for one never really like Portal or Portal 2. I like the puzzles and the 3D environments are okay, but game of the year? To me a game like Fallout 2 or Skyrim is GOTY material. I like Portal 2 for what it is, but the puzzles quickly bored me and the only part of the game that was any fun was the dialogue between the player and the robots.
Of course, I am 39 years old and have been playing games since I was 8 years old. So it's hard for me to see anything new. I am glad a game that requires thought is GOTY rather than another mindless FPS.
Is it weird that I don't like Portal/Portal 2?
