Valve, the game developer behind Half-Life and Portal, and J.J. Abramsí production studio Bad Robot will work together to produce games and movies, the heads of the two studios said at the DICE Summit on Wednesday.
...
Abrams and Newell made the surprise, succinct announcement at the end of their keynote speech, which took the form of a carefully rehearsed discussion between the two creatives about the strengths and weaknesses of games and movies as storytelling mediums.

This so awesome. They are both fans of each others field so I can't wait for what they come up with.

no, we'll now see that through a series of unlikely events, G-Man and Gordon actually met once before in a far-off airport waiting line.

Half-Life, I could see as a movie, especially if it carries over the atmosphere, but Portal? It's largely a puzzle game that has some story. Can't really see it as a movie property.

Totally disagree about Portal.  The story was the driving force of the game for me.  And Portal 2 added a hell of a lot.

Not trying to knock the gameplay.  It's a perfect blend, but there is a lot you could do with that property, film-wise.

Well, I'll admit I haven't played the sequel, so it may have more story than the first one.
