We're back with our third and final Kotaku Splitscreen special episode from the Game Developers Conference in sunny San Francisco.
Today was one of those occasions that comes once, maybe twice (but definitely not thrice) in a lifetime. Gabe Newell arose from his Scrooge McDuck-esque lake of knives and cash to conduct an AMA. Spoiler: He likes Portal 2 more than Half-Life, and despite appearances to the contrary, Valve still makes games.

The impact of Portal across video games and wider pop culture was massive.
That struck me whilst watching this video. It's a fantastic, detailed look at the history of Portal's development and it features a lot of information I, personally, was not aware of.
