No, it was merely used as one example of innovations in the FPS genre.

Well, yes it kind of is and no it isn't.

Technically, it's first person perspective and you are still 'shooting' a weapon. It was also a mod derived from a FPS, so it has more in common to a FPS than a racing game.

But I know what you mean.


He was talking about innovations, things that hadn't been done before in the genre. The context he mentioned Portal was explaining how Duke3D did things first that hadn't been seen in a FPS before.

In context, the portal comparison fits. Comparing it to Mario Kart definitely wouldn't.

Serious Sam was doing similar things around the same time. It wasn't full of sex or idiotic jokes but it was the same run'n'gun type of gameplay.

iirc, Serious Sam didn't have intractable objects etc. Run n' Gun wasn't part of the 'done first' examples.

There's more, but I'll save that job for those who are inclined to posting youtube videos

Haarrr haaar me has weapon, haaarrr, me shootZ it... Yes, that makes it an FPS
Now I understand why Modern Warfare is so popular.

Have you ever played Call of Cthulhu - Dark Corners of the Earth? It has guns and shooting and stuff, but is NOTHING like your average FPS. Same thing with Portal.

No I haven't, but then again I never said Portal was your typical FPS although semantically speaking, it still is a FPS.

It's played from a First Person perspective, uses standard FPS wasd/mouse control. It has a portal 'gun' that is used to Shoot. There is still a target to shoot said gun. The fact that this is where the similarities end are incidental.

Somebody originally misinterpreted Tubsy McYoutube and somebody else added to the misinterpretion. I simply tried to clarify the misunderstanding.

If others can't look past the end result to see a correlation of underlying FPS mechanics when comparing Portal to a typical FPS, then so be it.
