Excluding a few bumps along the way, Valve has largely won the hearts of gamers everywhere. The developer has delivered one hit title after another and its online distribution service Steam is immensely popular. Despite the success of its previous games, Valve says Portal 2 is the best yet.

This does look pretty dam good. (I hate to point out that this news is over 12 hours old, but u are a US site, ur prob just got out of bed ay!) I for one cannot wait for Portal 2. I am a big fab of Steam and digital Distribution. I have taken the CD drive out of My PC as I don't use it! (and its makes a noice for about 3 seconds when I switch PC on)

Steam is doing great! Looking forward to play Portal 2 sooo badly! Would be awesome if they released another orange box in the future with Portal, TF2, LFD2 ooohhh I'm getting excited. I'm still waiting on this month's gameinformer issue. I'll be sure respond back again with what I think once I've read the issue. Portal was soo fun and frustrating I bet this'll make me want to kill myself xD I still have not passed Portal, quite playing bc I could get passed a level and sold it.

Portal was one of the single greatest games I've ever played. I cannot wait for the second one. I wish all games inspired such nerdy joy in me.

Wow, if it really IS better than Half-Life 2, then I think I may have a new favorite FPS. I'm getting it regardless, but I am really anxious to see how the story relates to or is different than the rest of the Half-Life world.

Now I'm going to have to play the first portal game... too bad my list of games I have to play is already way too long. I've heard good thing about Portal; I just haven't had a good enough computer to play. Thankfully I just got a Radeon 5870 so I think I should be covered ;)

I cannot wait for Portal 2! The first Portal was one of the best games I have ever played. If you have not played this game, you have missed a lot.

If anyone can live up to the hype it's Valve and I hope Portal 2 brings something entirely new to the table. If this is the best they've ever done I can't wait =D.

Games from the Orange Box are not very demanding, this isn't BFBC2 or Crysis :) . Source is a very PC friendly engine and I'm sure you can run the game just post your specs in the gaming forum and we'll let ya know!

First Person Action Puzzle Game! Not a shooter =P .

As mentioned above this game is not very demanding but ya a 5870 will blow this game out of the water :) . It's definitely worth your time to play it considering it only takes about 3-4 hours to complete. Quick tip: when playing don't think only in linear terms ;) .

I have to admit I haven't played the original Portal, but know it's in "Hall of Fame" status with many, many gamers. I do have the game, just haven't installed it. Guess I better get rolling so I can be ready for Portal 2. :)

I really enjoyed playing Portal and cannot wait for Portal 2. They should release it now so I can play it.

Portal a test bed? that's one of my favorite games! If this is how it compares to the second, I neeeeeeeed that game!!!!

Portal was a truly great game. But Braid was even better; quite simply the best and most intriguing game I ever remember having played. If manipulating space was the basis for Portal, manipulating time was for Braid.

"Best game we've done" is saying a lot specially if you don't normally mention it on your range of award winning games.

It really is great to see a developer so excited about one of their own games.

But I really don't see this being revered as being better than the classic original Half-Life in the eyes of critics.
