And like this

My high-school classmate Leigh Alexander has written a deconstruction of Portal over at GameSetWatch that does a nice job of exploring the role of player choice in the game. She also psychoanalyzes GLaDOS for good measure. It's a lucid and thoughtful piece, and if you don't fear spoilers you should check it out.

Predictably, the first couple of comments on the column are haughty and dismissive.

Holy cow, we ARE high school classmates, aren't we? I've been looking at your work all this time without making the connection. This is why I was not voted "most likely to" anything. Small world!
