    Loved the Portal 2 video by faceofdoomness (and The National!), hadn't seen that before.

    Scary to think that Portal 2 could have been stripped of all those things which are so essential (even iconic) to its universe now. The fact that it didn't happen indicates that Valve are doing some... well, lots of things right ;) It's actually quite baffling how they manage to eventually settle on really good, near-perfect stuff having started out with a fair chunk of chaff. One great example would be Chell's outfit. If you look at the early versions of Chell's costume, they look rather generic and somewhat uninspired, while the final version is pure genius and blows everything else out of the bleeming water!

    Chell saying "Yes!" at the end would have been a great ending, that is if it happened after the chosen ending for the game. As in, Chell exited Aperture out of the elevator, the Companion Cube gets ejected out, and she just says "Yes!". That would have been a very powerful ending.

    I don't think such an ending would be fitting. To me, the delightful intrigue of Portal 2 ending is that (a part of) Chell probably does not want to leave GLaDOS after all. Firstly, GLaDOS just saved her life. Secondly, having spent so much time with GLaDOS and having gone through a great deal of turbulent stuff together, Chell must have developed a significant degree of attachment to the deviant AI creature (and it's not just Stockholm syndrome here). Then you have all those Caroline connections to boot... The ending you're suggesting would ruin all these intricacies, ambiguity and intrigue, imo. Portal is more sophisticated and subtle than that.

    While Chell speaking would have been cool, it doesn't really fit with the rest of the game (Never speaking during it), though perhaps if she returned for another game she could have an active speaking roll in that one.
