Single player games tend to trade the thrill of playing with or against other folk by giving players deeper, more interesting worlds to explore at their own pace with deeper narrative elements, with some exceptions. We've put together some of the finest single player games into a comprehensive list to help you with picking your next adventure.
A new Portal is coming! But it's not what you might expect... [UPDATE: Out this month! More screenshots and details!]
The new Portal is a spin-off from the Bridge Constructor series of puzzle games, but it does feature GLaDOS.
While not exactly 'Gaming' news, Portal and its sequel are more or less cult classics. The surprise new IP seen Valve's Orange Box release stunned critics with its blend of mind-numbing puzzles and sentient AI humor causing a sequel to eventually roll around and stun us again.
So in a time where more and more video games are seeing screen adaptions, it's still a shock to hear that Portal is likely the next one to the thrown into the writer's room. Though talks of both Portal and Half-Life movies appeared a few years back, IGN cornered J.J. Abrams at the premier of Westworld where he confirmed a meeting with Valve was set to go ahead next week.
Valve and Psyonix have announced that car football hybrid Rocket League will be getting some Portal-themed downloadable content in December for free.
What could possibly go wrong with powering up GLaDOS with all of NASA at her disposal? In a cunning ploy to cram our brains with knowledge, the Portal AI is teaching science to bumbling technicians.
It seems GLaDOS is moving up in the world from potato to Polaroid camera. It's an educational video to explain what fusion and fission is to those less scientifically literate, or fearful of AIs.
