A 3 Year Old Girl Plays Portal 2 And It's Painfully Adorable

You might remember Penny from her previous appearances on Kotaku. Previously she was helping her Dad (Australian game developer Lance E. McDonald) play, but now she's struck out on her own. Her first 'Let's Play' video is a humdinger: watch Penny play Portal 2 and feel your ovaries throb in response.

She's actually really good at the game!

This has inspired me. I'm going to take it a step further and live stream my 17 month old bashing turning my Xbox One on and off over and over again because he likes the noise it makes. Going to be rolling in dat YouTube money. Respect my hustle.

    I got a video of my 4 year old playing Mario Kart 8 the other day. Maybe I should put it on youtube and bring in the cash. But I've got a thing about putting videos and even photos of my little girl online...I feel uncomfortable about it.

    As someone with no kids, I can't appreciate the cuteness of this. However I really appreciate how damn good this 4 year old kid is at playing Portal! Gees, kids nowadays, gaming comes so natural.

    Can't wait Mark. We need more quality clips on YouTube.

    Go for it. Gamers need more reminders that kids can enjoy games. It's a lot harder to sook and moan that easy mode Mario is ruining gaming if you can see a cute kid actually having fun with it.

    I just want that kid to blow its nose. or just give the snot one big snort instead of making that horrible rattling noise every few minutes. And for God's sake, cover your mouth when you cough!!!

      Preschoolers are snot machines. They really don't work that sort of thing out until they're about 5 or 6.

    My 5 year old daughter is playing skyrim. She likes to walk around Solitude talking to people and preforming healing hands on them. Sometimes she likes going out into the forest to pick flowers and catch butterflies. If anything looks like it might fight her she she just runs away to pick flowers somewhere else. Non violent Skyrim kind of looks fun when she is playing it.......

      It shouldn't be too hard to mod it so that enemies don't attack her. I'm sure there's probably a good thief cheat pack mod that would give her the ability to become totally invisible when she wants to run away.

      I've always liked the idea of a exploration based open world game (with a dash of a collectathon). Just a giant, mod-friendly world to explore. Animals and stuff are around and there's still some danger, but you go into a cave to see what's in there and maybe find some treasure rather than to fight a million zombies.

    Respect my hustle. I need to somehow find a way to add this to my daily vocabulary.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! Reminds me of me so much. I've been guilty of plugging in USB devices needlessly because my laptop makes a cool little boopboop noise.

    My 4 year old son started playing Portal 2 a few weeks ago, and watching him play and work out the puzzles is amazing.

    Also goes to show what a good job Valve did with the design that a kid can pick it up and gradually get introduced to the game mechanics without any outside help
