Thread: Is the Weighted Companion Cube a "character"?

    Is the Weighted Companion Cube a "character"?

    I got in a silly argument with someone over this and so I wanted an outside opinion on it.

    What do you guys think? Would you consider it to be a character?

    If you considered Portal in the same way you would consider a piece of literature, the weighted companion cube represents an inanimate object personified through the words of GLaDOS. Through the psychotic nature of both GLaDOS and, supposedly, through the main character, we can see the companion cube as a living being even though it really isn't. Basically, from a literary standpoint, yes, the cube is a character in the overall plot.

    Companion Cube was given a personality.
    It is an untraditional character.

    An inanimate object an already-obscure plot of a game tries to establish that has some sort of feelings to make you feel bad when you toss it into the incinerator.

    What Zeph said.

    Although I'll add I have no idea why so many people love the thing, sure, the dialogue about it was well-written and hilarious, but I didn't feel all that guilty for incinerating it. I didn't know I had the option of not destroying the cube, so I felt I was tricked the first time through
