Portal Games Get an Honest Trailer, and a 3-Year-Old Girl Plays Portal 2 Like a Boss

In an honest trailer, is the cake still a lie?

The Portal games are great, but they’re also pretty short (and fairly similar), so this Honest Trailer team-up from Smosh Games and Screen Junkies takes a look at both of them. And, in keeping with the theme of things in pairs and honest reactions, here’s a bonus video of a 3-year-old girl playing Portal 2 better than a lot of full grown adults I know.

It’s really cute, so just don’t think too hard about the fact that her parents are basically playing GLaDOS and recording her working her way through a (virtual) deadly maze. And for the cynical ones out there who don’t believe a 3-year-old could possibly make it through the enrichment center, the video’s YouTube description says that little Penny has played through this part of the game at least 20 times already, which is why she knows what she’s doing so well.

You can also just go to about 37 minutes into the video and see the controller in her hands, though I think we’ve all pulled the unplugged player 2 controller trick on a toddler or two. (Or was I just a horrible babysitter as a teenager?)
