This is wrong. In greek mythology there are 3 afterlifes:
-Tartarus, a place of punishment for the evil.
-the Plains of Asphodel, Infinite planes of grain, where all of the common people go, those who just lived their life without doing anything too special.
- The Elysian Fields, where heroes go, A land of plenty and wine and sex and parties.
I'm pretty sure chell deserved wine and sex and parties.

But what about the cake

The closest to what OP describes are the Plains of Asphodel and that has no singing and you have no friends with you. It's limbo in a sense and you wander around, forever, not knowing who you are.

There is a 4th place for those who have been reborn and managed to enter the Elysian Fields multiple times (I think 3?). It is basically heaven on crack.

Either way, this might be from another mythology but it sure as hell isn't Greek.

You think that's bad? In the original plans of Portal 2 (it was supposed to be MUCH darker, until they apparently thought that it would be so much more difficult to market, so they added silly robots and a second, less serious storyline) there was a scene in which you hear Cave Johnson force Caroline into the machine that would "download" her into an AI, but Cave's voice actor straight up refused to voice it. Also, you were supposed to find Caroline's dead body, still strapped into the machine, which would cause GLaDOS into an emotional fit. In fact, that was supposed to be the climax of the game. Also, Wheatley was a last minute add, just like Atlas and P-Body.
#84 to #9 - anon (04/04/2013) [-]
But the machine was intended for Cave and only to be used for Caroline in the event of Cave's death before the machine's completion... Why would Cave be forcing Caroline into the machine?

Because he was slowly slipping into insanity?
User avatar #43 to #9 - maskedguardianmkii (04/04/2013) [-]
Dude... I so wish they had done this. I didn't like how "light" the game felt compared to the first one because of all the silly jokes and robots.
#59 to #9 - anon (04/04/2013) [-]
I sincerely doubt that. First because you have no sources, secondly because why the **** would a voice actor refuse to do that? You don't seem to understand how difficult it is to get work as a voice actor, the vast majority of them just can't afford to.

It's not even as though it would be hard to find another voice actor willing to do it. You think mimicking Cave's voice is hard? Or that they couldn't find someone else?
#72 to #59 - anon (04/04/2013) [-]
Not when you're ******* J K Simmons. [url deleted]

You can't beat that voice!

Plus, his character raped men all the time on the TV show "Oz", so i find it hard to believe that he would have a problem with voicing that scene

******* **** that would have been awesome.
User avatar #13 to #9 - Hashenmier (04/04/2013) [-]
Actually, Ellen Mclain (voice of GlaDOS and turrets etc) recorded her lines for the scene of forcing caroline into the machine, but the VA for cave wouldn't do it for fear it sounded too much like a rape scene.

Wheately was originally 6 different cores, by Valve changed it to just 1 for character development.

(Scource, developer commentary from portal 2)

Yeah I really felt like the game was too light, considering it's about an abandoned underground facility ruled by a psychopathic robot who killed thousands of people.
User avatar #193 to #76 - andimac ONLINE (04/04/2013) [-]
I dunno, I liked the upbeat storyline of portal 2. It's more fun (personally) to play a game with jokes in it than potential rape scenes. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good horror game as much as the next guy, but comedy is far more appealing to me.

Oh **** , that also explains the death scene in Gladiator.

No one questioned the ending of Gladiator though

You are right, but I didn't mean to say that the ending was being question, but rather that it gives a better explanation of the scene :)

Corn is an old generic word for all kinds of grain like barley, wheat and rye.
It was used in the Americas to describe maize or sweetcorn.

Obviously since the ancient Greeks and the guys who translated their texts into English didn't know about America or the mysterious plant there called maize that would later also be known as corn, they didn't bother to distinguish them.

So that IS in fact a cornfield.

elysium isn't a cornfield.

And ancient greeks didn't have corn.

it was a wheat field in the game too wasn't it?
User avatar #166 to #163 - theshadowed ONLINE (04/04/2013) [-]
I'm not sure. Never got round to completing it. My point was that there are many different parts of the Greek underworld, Elysium is for the good who stand out

It's a wheat field.
User avatar #174 - ivoryhammer (04/04/2013) [-]
Or, hear me out on this one, I know it's crazy, Chell took the elevator up and the turrets sang and she found herself on the surface world, and since Aperture tech lasts up to 5000 degrees F the CC was still intact. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar guys.

Okay I appreciate your statements, but I can't stand Freud's cigar quote. That was just a cop-out because he didn't want anyone to use his own logic to point out that he wants to suck a fat D.

How in the **** is heaven a cornfield in Greek mythology when nobody in the eastern hemisphere knew corn was even a thing? Nobody knew about that **** until people went to the western hemisphere where corn originates... basically I'm calling you a dumbass, cool story though
User avatar #111 to #36 - lyiat ONLINE (04/04/2013) [-]
North America is the only place that calls 'maize' corn. Everywhere else, corn is any cereal crop, such as oats, wheat, ect. That said, Chell would have been bound for a completely different afterlife according to Greek Mythos, so the point is moot. Chell is not dead.

No. I'm still alive.
User avatar #14 - lordlolland (04/04/2013) [-]
To all those disputing this based on the distinct lack of corn:
Outside of the US, Canada and Australia, corn is used in the English language as a generic term to describe cereal crops such as Barley, Oats, Rye and Wheat.
User avatar #49 to #14 - smorguynator **User deleted account** (04/04/2013) [-]

Ah, the wonderful world of foreshadowing.

The thing is that developers have, time and again, gone out of their way to tell you things without out and out telling you. Garry's Raticate is a good example of this. The trick to doing this is that enough information is given to support the thesis without completely proving it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

It leaves the decision ultimately with the player, allowing them a personal stake in first the discovery and then the defence of the theory. As such, Valve have played a masterful hand in creating a theory that is as provable as it is fallible and letting us choose wether we want to believe it or not.

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.

some people also says when people die they move to elysium, but it isn't a corn field nor a wheat field. It is a beautiful grass land.

This is ******** and it's a legitimate cornfield.
GladOs had no reason to kill Chell, plus, as she said, she only wants you gone.
