ThoseGamingNerds writes: Portal 2 is the sequel to the highly successful Portal, a small game included in the 2007 release of The Orange Box. In a package of games including Half-Life 2, Episodes 1&2, and Team Fortress 2, no game stood out more than Portal. Though it was over in a flash, Portal was innovative, funny, and an overall joy to play. The demand was high for more Portal following its release. Now Valve has given the world more Portal, and yes, it is awesome.
