*SPOILER* Portal: Best Credits Ever?

I love these credits. Actually, these are the only credits I've ever watched to be honest with you.


The lyrics are hard to see I know, there was another on YouTube that was zoomed in on the lyrics but the sound quality was bad. This was the best I could do.

I just beat Portal right now and I gotta say, that was one amazing game with the best ending song ever.

I liked but didn't love Portal, but that had to be one of the best ending sequences/credits ever, especially after you've just finished the game and that voice is still fresh in your mind trying to persuade you to come back and have some cake before it's all gone.

I was expecting a cupcake, not a whole chocolate cake like at the end!

I tried to download the song I like it that much, but can't find it anywhere...

I shall keep trying though!

I love the whole early 90s BBS styled ASCII and that song!
Ellen McLain is a classically trained operatic singer, by trade. Jonathan Coulton has written a whole stack of comedic songs. Put the two of them together and add some voice-effects and you've got a masterpiece that's still ringing around my head despite being a good 3 months since I last heard it!

Also the name 'I'm Still Alive' hints at where the sequel (or DLC) for Portal could be going! GlaDOS wasn't killed by rocket and incinerator, perhaps.

*sigh* I can't believe people like this song. I can't emphasize enough how bad it is.

I thought the song was great as well and thanks for posting it btw. If you didn't like this song I think you didn't get the humor of the game.

If not the best credits, it has to be among the top 3. Can't think of a better one right now. Great song and great graphix.
