The door slides open and I walk around,
A pristine test chamber, not a sound.
A portal here, a portal there,
And just like that I'm in the air.
Slightly disoriented, dazed and confused,
I look around, a bit bemused,
Platforms, buttons, lasers and all
Just one wrong step, I fall.
Okay, now avoid the bottomless pits
Figure out this puzzle, just use my wits.
Jump through the portal, land on my feet
I'm lost. Just go to the Internet and cheat?
No, now I see it, a platform there
But turrets begin firing, missing by a hair.
I duck behind cover, and the shooting stops
Launch a portal and the turrets drop.
A blue portal on the wall, an orange one here,
I almost reach my target. I'm pretty near.
But an ominous laugh rings overhead
A sadistic computer has come instead
A pipe is pumping a greenish fume,
A deadly neurotoxin fills the room.
Running through the door, I'm finally out,
And the evil computer, with a pout,
Sends me to the next few chambers.
I haven't seen her but she's no stranger,
Is she my enemy? Or maybe a friend?
I will not know until the end.
But this game is worth the play-through,
After all, it's Portal 2
A game where science blends with fun,
Rated E for everyone.

You're a great writer. I played Portal 2 once and you depicted it well.
