That Eureka Moment

Going along with the previous post, I just finished Portal 2.  It’s such an excellent game – much like its predecessor, it’s smartly written, has a great pair of characters, and has puzzles that will have you scratching your head until you can finally figure out what combination of portals, lasers, goop, and blocks can get you out of your particular predicament.  It entices the brain to think in multiple dimensions, not just in space but engages you fully in time as well.  And best of all is that little satisfaction that you get at the end of a puzzle, that clarion moment of “aha!” when you finally put all of the pieces together and you’ve solved it.  The game thrives on that human need for a eureka moment, and it does excellently for it.
