Game is Crashing! PLEASE READ!
I am having a problem on portal 2. When i press the "play" button for portal 2 it opens the game and shows the valve sponsor clip and when it is finished the game gets to the home screen then shuts off and i am back to the steam desktop page. When i look in the taskbar the portal game is still there and when i click it, it opens a window saying "could not load library client." Then there is no way of getting to the game. *Before this my game would shut down while i was in mid-game and i would have to open it back up. *This also is not just me, I have some friends that have this game who run off of the Microsoft Windows who have the same problem.
Please help i just got the game and really love it but this is very annoying!

I've had Portal 2 for a while now and it is also randomly crashing. I wish i knew the problem :(

I just had this exact problem. I went into the game's properties and disabled cloud sync, and the game loaded normally for me.

There was a recent update to the Steam client that seems to have coincided with a lot of people getting this problem. The first step with any problem on Steam is always to verify game cache. That appears to fix this current problem for most people. Have you tried that yet?

Steam Game Library > Right-click game > Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache...
