Portal 2 Best Game Ever

Portal 2 is the excellent sequel to Portal, a game that is so important to videogame history that it was at the same time cherished by the game community for it's innovative gameplay, used in classrooms as an educational tool and featured in art exhibitions for its narrative.

Portal 2 is a first-person action puzzle that has incredible gameplay, amazing atmosphere and very good writing. It makes you feel terrible, like the first one did, and gives you a glance of how disturbed AI might think.

The dark humor offers a critique of capitalism and techno-scientific domination. Since the game puzzles envolve physics, gravity and out of the box thinking, it is perfect for learning. The editor tools makes it possible to explore level design as a educational experience. The multiplayer mode gives you a whole new kind of cooperative experience.

While some may find Portal 1 to be better, others may consider it as a prototype for what Portal 2 is: a first-person with a memorable story, setting and characters that is only comparable to Bioshock.
