Same here: Got Portal on weekend sale (double pack).
on Windows 8 pro, NVIDIA GTX 660 TI, new install of newest NVIDIA driver 314.22
Portal 2 crashes immediately after the loading screen.
The "compatibility mode" does not help the problem.

I have to say that PORTAL 1 and all my other games are running fine.
and the other portal 2 copy on my win7 machine is running fine as well.

Please help valve or whoever feels responsible here!

I found the solution: The post of Fire banana in a smimlar fred helpd:

I had the same problem and just recently found a very simple fix,
Locate Portal 2 in your steam library, right click and hit "Properties", navigate to the "Local Files" tab and select "Verify Integrity Of Game Cache". This should take a few minutes and once its done re launch portal 2. It will update for a minute or two then it should work.

Same problem, bought on weekend sale, worked the first day, next day it wouldn't work Verifying the game cache does not work, re-installing the game does not work, emailing Valve also does not work apparently.

I wish I could help U guys...if the cache thing dont work,
Try a few standards:
Install newest driver of your graphic card
Try compatibility modes = u find them by right click on portal2.exe
Close all unnecessary progs in background etc....

Good luck , lasse

In my case, I went to c:\steamlibrary\steamapps\common\portal2\portal2.exe right clicked on it to run as administrator and ran it as Vista (running windows 7 os). Then it worked!
