Portal is a reskinned half life 2? :lol: you done gone mad.
How is it not? It's a shooter based on the source engine, WITH PLATFORM PUZZLES! I like it a lot but I'm not in denial about what it is.

With your logic, you can now call any game in any given genre a reskinning of the original title in said genre.

Dude......

and I do.

I adore games that are completely original or define new genres.

ICO comes to mind, Braid...

Nooooo, I barely remember the escort parts. It has some very unique 3d puzzles.

The entire game was about escorting the queen's daughter. The entire reason people love the game is because of the interaction and story involving the title character and the princess, and you barely remember the escort parts?

Ill give them DOTA sorta. It's not original though, it's just warcraft 3. Portal and Portal 2 are both reskinned Half Life 2.

It's a mashup of RTS and tower defense. Not really like W3 at all. But we could obviously argue this all day. And I don't care to do so.

...You know what DOTA stands for right?

Defense of the Ancients is a map in W3.

Got into War Thunder last night. Not bad! Anyone else here playing it?

I've been busy with life lately, but I've played it for a while. It's fun. The only thing I don't like is that it automatically picks servers for you based on your levels. I would appreciate a more open server approach for experimentation.

I was trying to find a way to setup a one on one battle. Couldn't seem to find it. This might explain why.

Seems they've done a good job of balancing paid players with free players though.
