Valve: Portal 2 is our best game ever

Half-Life 2? Rubbish. Left 4 Dead? A stain on the history of videogames. Valve has declared that Portal 2 is its greatest triumph yet, even though it's not even finished. Speaking with 1UP, Gabe Newell stated that it's "pretty clear" to his internal team that the long-awaited sequel is absolutely amazing. 

"One of the nice things about The Orange Box was it allowed us to try out a couple of different things, and Portal really seemed to resonate," explains Newell. "We got the signals that we wanted -- this is what people liked; this is what people didn't like. And to us, it was like, 'OK now we know how to take this big,' so that's what we're going to do with Portal 2.

"Oh Portal 2's great. It's the best game we've ever done."

Usually I'd warn against hype, but if any company is good at making games live up to the PR nonsense, it's Valve. I can't wait to see what the team manages to do with Portal 2. If it's the best thing Valve's ever done, it's probably going to be really, really good.
