313w ago - This modern masterpiece shakes the FPS genre to the very core.. Warning: The text you are about to read contains heady intellectual discourse and is not recommended for anyone made queasy by the discussion of feminist film theory or psychoanalytical signifiers.
Since its release two months ago, Portal has met with overwhelming popular and critical success thanks to its quirky physics and dystopian humor. Yet beneath the mainstream success lies the most subversive first-person shooter (FPS) ever created. Portal is essentially a feminist critique of the FPS genre, flawlessly executed from within the margins it assails. Gender politics just got a whole lot more fun.
Deconstructing the term "first-person shooter" reveals two fundamental concepts of the game mechanic.

Wii Sports for the Nintendo Wii has been one of the most popular games in the last few years. The game has launched the Nintendo Wii into orbit. And Wii Bowling itself has been a huge gaming phenomenon. The elderly/college dorms have weekly tournaments and the game has people who do not normally play game systems putting their moves on for Wii Bowling. Families get together and play. The thing is huge!
So now Sony has jumped in on the bowling bandwagon. And much like the Wii's motion-controller gimmick, High Velocity Bowling uses the PS3 Sixaxis controller as a selling point. High Velocity Bowling sells for $9.99 on the PSN Store. So how does this game stack up against Wii Sports? First, the only...
