Best Easter Egg ever–Left 4 Dead 2 and Portal 2

1 min read


When talking videogames an easter egg is a hidden gameplay element that often pays homage to the developers other loves or titles that helped shape their mind.

Normally it’s just a small thing left in the such as a carving on a wall or a sandcastle on an island but this easter egg in the Suicide Blitz 2 map for Left 4 Dead 2 is utterly amazing.

Not only is it huge but it’s incredibly intricate and the map developers have actually managed to squeeze in a whole other game into their map pack and that game is Portal 2.

Seriously it’s worth watching just to see how much love was put into this.

A question remains over whether or not the whole thing was scripted or not and my personal feeling is that it was. The fact that these 2 never needed to think about what to do once and the way they talked us through the entire thing just makes me think they have either played this map a couple of times or knew exactly what was required.

Who knows they may have actually made the map themselves.
