"Launched by Valve Corporation in 2007, Portal became an unexpected breakout hit because of its unique game play. Originally packaged with four first-person shooter games, Portal received the most critical acclaim of the compilation because of its game mechanics that relied on portal physics. Despite taking only about four hours to complete, the game inspired players to return again and again by offering numerous solutions to each puzzle. It went on to win numerous technical awards and to be named the “Game of the Year” in 2008 at the Game Developers Conference."
