this instantly reminded me of the ending of "Gladiator".

like, symbolically maybe, but in the story, like she was actually let go. Remember "they are sentient, we just have a lot of them..." pretty sure that if the Companion Cube was incinerated there would be nothing left of it to give to Chell.

Also Glados was Chell's mother, or something, but she really cared for Chell. Also the turrets didnt fire. I mean sure all of this is symbolic, but its not literal.

Literal Ending:
Glados gets emotional. Lets Chell go free.

If anything, it was just to symbolize that Portal is completely done and that they are not ever going to do another Portal game. I mean come on, an ending like Portal 2's ending doesnt come around too often, and it was the perfect note to completely end a perfect story.

I think it just symbolizes the end of the story bro, not the character in it.

Glados had no relation whatsoever to Chell, despised her and did not care in the slightest for her.

You 'tarded? Yeah, you're 'tarded. Chell's parents were Caroline and Cave Johnson, and Caroline was uploaded into the computer to run Aperture after Cave died.

Did you know, a huge percentage of Did you know is full of crap and a high percentage of people actually believe in it. In Greek Mythology, there is no such a place as heaven. There is the land of God, and the land of Devil (Hades), both of them are forbidden by mortals. There is some saying said when people die they will move to a place, but that place is a island for heroic people, not freaking corn field. IN FACT, THE WORD CORN FIELD HAS PROVEN THIS POST IS NOTHING BUT ****. Corn was introduced to Europe by Columbus, which is about like more than 1600 years after.
GOD DAMMIT. Some people spot some special thing in a video game and make up some stupid ass story and people begin to believe in it.

GladOs had no reason to kill Chell, plus, as she said, she only wants you gone.

I call BS, It was the ending, and they referenced the "Room where turrets scream at you" which was the final room. So no, she did not die. **** you and your attempt to make me feel

No, in Greek mythology a cornfield was the Fields of Asphodel, which was in between Heaven & Hell(Elysium & Fields of Punishment, respectively). The Fields of Asphodel were basically nothing. You just wandered, endlessly.

Corn is indigenous to the Americas only. Only upon the discovery of corn in the Americas was it then brought to the other continents. Ancient Greeks didn't know what corn was, see it, nor use it in their mythology.

"According to Greek Mythology, heaven is a cornfield"

wut? The mythological paradise of the ancient Greeks is called "Elysion" and it's supposed to be full of gardens, with fresh springs, green trees and lush grasslands, if it's appearance is specified at all. I don't know of any source that describes Elysion as "a cornfield"...

You can say: "According to my own imagination, heaven is a cornfield", but don't make statements like these, if you don't know anything about it.

They were 4 different "stages" one was the field of Asphodel which was a giant field all the neutral people went to. Another one was the isle of rebrith it like heaven but people who end up here can retry life again and if they end up alive again. Then they were allowed entrance to Elysium which is like a another comment said "heaven on crack"

Then there was Tartarus where insead of the devil waiting with his his pitchfork and lube you had a giant prison where Cronus was with his sythe... and no lube

There were three afterlives in Greek mythology. None of them involved corn.

Pic semi related.

One afterlife, several places. The underworld is like a continent with several countries. More than three, too.

According to the story of.... christ i cant remember fucing on of them. It is accesable to the living though once you go under and into the underworld, you are cut off by the river styx, which if you fall in you die, and you must take a boat ride over. Its more like a giant ass desolate cavern.

No, the River Styx is the barrier between the Land of the Living and the land of the Dead, and there's two more rivers after that. Crossing the Styx takes you to the Underworld from a place known as the Fringe, which is a place where souls who can not pay for passage across must wait for Charon to select them for passage instead. It is kind of like purgatory. Either way, you can't reach Olympus via the Styx, or crossing them.

There's also a placed called the Isle of Heroes where anyone who has done something incredible, regardless of faith, or if they had simply been well-liked by the gods, go to. You also forgot Tartarus which is a place in the Underworld where all of the most horrible criminals go, as well as being the prison of the titans. There's likely even more than that, since there's a lot of information missing on the Greek Faith.

I dont believe tartarus was for humans, only the titans and gods/demigods like zeus's son, and you are forgetting the fields of punishment, elysian fields, and... whatever the **** the neutral was. the meadows of whatnot or something. And to my memory it was the isle of the blessed not the isle of heroes.

No,Tartarus was for human criminals who did unspeakable crimes as well, such as particularly gruesome murder, cannibalism, the rape and killing of a child, etc. Arsonists we're said to go there too.

Like I said ,there's all kinds. There wasn't actually one specific field for punishment, rather, many different places.

The neutral are the fields of aphsodel.

I know it was the something meadow. No idea what the first word was though. Possibly asphodel meadow? I remember it as meadow anyways. And yes i remember now, people like the ********* of a king killed and dined on his own son's remains went to tartarus.

That's Tantalus, and actually rather than Tartarus, he was chained to a tree and a lake of refreshing, cool water rose up to his chin, but every time he lowered his head to drink it would recede. A bunch of delicious looking apples were hanging overhead, and every time he reached up to take one, the branches would swing away.

No, because it exists in a different realm entirely. The only way to reach Mount Olympus is if you were made in to a God upon death, but that can't be called an afterlife so much as a rebirth.

Nope, there is a difference. At the Isle of Creation, the Gods will actually occasionally come to feast with the residents there. It's the only place in the afterlife you're capable of going where you can actually meet the gods of the Pantheon.

Okay, not three separate after lives, but rather three places where you could end up: The Underworld, The Elysian Fields, or the Fields of Asphodel. Or were there more in Greek mythology?

As well: corn is indigenous to America. The Greeks didn't know America existed. Also: "All Aperture Science equipment is functional up to 4000 degrees Kelvin"

Corn is not indigenous to Greece. It was not a cornfield but a Field of Asphodel, a type of bitter smelling flower.

I found this while googling.

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan had tons of coal and lead mines, but there is no salt. That's more located in the middle of the US, due to ancient oceans that once covered the area (but not the midwest).

Salt mines are located more in the middle of the US? Really. Detroit has a very famous salt mine. In case you didn't know, Detroit is in the state of Michigan. The salt field mined there is vast and spans a few states. Does it this field go up the to UP? Who cares, it is close enough. And I will explain why in a second.

The wheat field. There are no wheat fields that far north (Michigan's UP is nothing but forests)

There are plenty of farms on the UP. It is more than forests.

Naturally, there are no massive prairies of wheat or other grasses like that, only dense forests.

You would have been correct 400 years ago. Protip: it is not 400 years ago right now.

For these reasons, I don't trust what we saw

Those reasons? The baseless assumptions you made? You don't trust a video game ending because you made some incorrect assumptions about the geography of Michigan.

Actually, false.

When you're trying to get back to the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, GLaDOS starts listing off punishments for Wheatley when they get back, and she mentions the 'Room where all the turrets scream at you.'
It was said by Robin Walker that it was the same room at the end.
