I don't get that, I use windows 8 and have never had a problem whatsoever.

You shouldn't need comparability mode, since portal 2 is a steam game. And steam supports windows 8 natively.

I am having the same issue while using Win 7. I played the game without issue last night for 2 hours. Tonight, it simply returns to the desktop.

It's funny because it worked in December when I bought it, now it crashes on the Valve screen when the guys head turns around

It seems like yall have a file missing in the game folder, reinstall the game.

how do i reinstall without rebuying?

It's easy, just right click the portal 2 link in steam, go to the bottom of the menu and click the delete local files button. Then after uninstalling, you can install it again.
