Defining moments - This was a triumph

“This was a triumph. I’m making a note here: huge success. It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.”

Portal is without a doubt one of the most iconic and memorable games of the last 10 years. There was a whole period at the end of the last decade where you almost couldn’t tell someone you were a gamer without receiving the response: “The cake is a lie!”

Portal started life as little more than a tech-demo called Narbacular Drop developed by a group of students attending Digipen Institute of Technology. Then, Valve’s Gabe Newell came across it and offered the entire team a job. Their task? To develop Narbacular Drop into a new, fully-fledged title; thus, Portal was born. (PC, Portal, PS3, Xbox 360)
