They list Half-Life 2's gravity gun, but not the Portal gun?! The Portal gun should be at least second.

Failed.

We all need one of these:

Conversation that just happened at the BKITU/Forty-Two home:

Me: There's a list of video game items that would be useful in everyday life, and the Portal gun isn't on there.
BKITU: ...What?!
Me: They do have Maxwell's notebook, though. I can't argue with that.
BKITU: Yeah, with that, you can have anything.
Me: Maybe you can use the notebook to get a Portal gun.
BKITU: Well, then the list only needs to be one item long, now, doesn't it?

Red potion but not Phoenix Down? Really?

Glad someone said the Portal gun. I do agree with number one, however

This. #2 after a generic respawn ability. NOTHING would beat being able to infinitely respawn.

You know, if we had Portal technology, space travel would be almost useless.  Just send a gun and a large surface to the Moon or Mars, have the opening on Earth with a good airlock, and walk to the Moon.

Until some wiseacre points his portal gun outside of the airlock and shoots an orange portal into the dirt.

Besides everyone knows that moon rocks (especially crushed up ones) are highly poisonous.

At least he got the Gravity Gun on the list. But two time-travel devices? C'mon...

/agree with the Portal Gun and Respawners

I want one of those paddles from Pong because they're so much easier to use than a regular racket.

Any kind of nethack/duke nukem potion/medical kit that can heal you completely would be really nice.

List fails without save/load buttons. Real life would be a lot easier with that feature.

Blue shell.

hell, one of the series even had TRAINS going through the gateways.
most efficient way to move massive amounts of people and good through a small opening

As their name suggests, they can do just about anything.

Do console commands count as a video game item?

Space travel IS almost useless as it stands. The word you're looking for is viable. Portals would make space travel viable.

At the height of my WoW addiction I started to check my pockets for my hearthstone on a couple occasions.

WTF is a hammerspace?  Never heard of that...

No tricorder on the list? (No Star Trek games?)
