You probably would not have enjoyed Portal 1, either. For me, enjoyment of the games was due to: the humor, the atmosphere, and the joy of sending Chell flying through puzzles.
The first two seem to be largely dependent on having a certain cultural frame of reference involving dealing with haughty passive-aggressive types, especially in the educational realm. Or in New Jersey. Also, enjoying the satirization of said types would help.
And if video games need to have the added catharsis that comes with reducing simulated living bodies to simulated chunks of meat, you probably aren't going to be crazy about the gameplay, either.Edited by tafkar - 4/21/11 at 12:50pm
