You guys are very late. This ending was revealed at Portal 2's announcement.

Yeh!!! An excuse to play through Portal again! IMHO, one of the most clever games of the decade. Kudos to the guys at VALVe for keeping the game interesting and working hard on the sequel. Now if they would just get the friggen thing finished already (along with HL2:EP3)! Worth the wait though, I'm sure. :)

[citation][nom]JasonAkkerman[/nom]They should have added the song to the video...[/citation]That song is absolutely great. I'm still bugging my buddy that's in a local metal band to try a riff-laden screamo cover of it.

Portal was definitely different. I loved HL2 (Sill my favourite FPS of all time) and bought the Orange box to get the sequels and portal turned out to be a pleasant surprise.

It wasn't really extended so much as having a few seconds more added to it. Extended in my mind would mean another scene, or another bit of action. Being dragged across the ground with an additional ten words is not much.

I did play through again, get all the radios, and still had tons of fun. One of the best games ever in my opinion. Portal 2 better not mess it up!

I have to agree with Regulas- HL2 is way better. I wish Valve would stop throwing resources into Left 4 Dead, and release HL2:E3. I mean seriously, its painful! I'm hoping Episode 3 is longer than Episode 2 also. Then I suppose, it will be another six year wait between that and HL3.

I thought the original ending was clever. I remember how every time I thought it was going to end, it had a different sort of twist to it. I'll definitely have to dust it off and play it through again.

I am ashamed to say I have never played Portal and don't know anything about it. I am assuming its a mod and about to be made into a full blown sequel like TF2 was with Portal 2.

Portal was the best game in Orange Box. Half Life 2 is overrated and disappointing and the episodic content is even more disappointing.

How is this ending truly different from the original ending with a hundred glowing robot/computer eyes staring at the cake in a basement somewhere? I mean, that was enough to tell me there was going to be a sequel.

Probably been done already. I found a lot of versions on YouTube so far. A rock version, pop version, original writer version, Mario Paint version, terminal version.

Hell I even found a Russian band version.

Still Alive is probably the most popular video game song released in recent years.
