Is Portal 2 The Funniest Game Ever Made?

GameThirst - Comedy in a video game isn’t an easy thing to do. And I mean real comedy, not one liners cracked during cut-scences. To get the comedy timing right, when you don’t know what the player will be doing or where they will be looking is no small feat. So the fact that Valve managed to create a small group of characters that will keep you howling with laughter throughout, is a true testament to there game design, as well as the games brilliant writing.

Not really, most of it was tongue in cheek and I got a couple of chuckles from it but it wasn't that great in the comedy department.

It wasn't tongue in cheek. Portal 2 knew it was trying to be funny and it did it without holding back. It's the funniest game I've ever played.

No it is not.

Comedy is subjective.

PirateThom2824d ago

It's definitely up there, seriously...

It's a matter of opinion at the end of the day. I watch that and feel they are trying too hard, whilst others will be laughing hysterically.

That clip was even funnier in the game when Glados started getting pumped up while he was saying it. ;)

LOVE the music in that part-- especially during the half-way point of the game

Being a regular listener to Steven Merchants Podcasts with Ricky Gervais and Karl Pilkington, I can safely say, he didn't feel right playing Wheatley, you can tell in his voice. Theres a somewhat lack of emphasis and character. He puts more into his voice work for Barclays Bank advertisements. I just couldn't laugh after hearing himself so ful of character in the hilarious podcasts...

wow you have ridiculously high standards.

Solid_Snake-2824d ago

totally agree i listen to there podcasts and think steve merchant was the wrong person for the character. i think valve were looking for a very unique voice ( which steve merchant has ) but maybe not for the role of wheatly.

TBH i think gervais would of done it better.

IMO That's how he was suppose to act. Don't forget he's a robot

Nah that would be Silent Hill 2... Oh the humour, such laughter....
