hey,
i thought about buying L4D(2). but i cant decide which one to buy. i've played the L4D2-demo, and it seemed like a fun game. on the other hand, i've heard alot of shit about L4D2, such as its not really a new game and they only made the same game concept as in the original.

so, i'd like to hear your opinions/recommendations. how many people still play the original L4D, is L4D2 worth the extra bucks?

i'll make a little pro/con-list here:

L4D:
+ cheaper, already has the essential gameplay
- outdated(?), not played so much anymore (?)

L4D2:
+ new version, more content, played by enough
- more expensive, no real new gameplay elements

L4D was fresh, that's why people liked it that much.it 2as a new idea!
but l4d got old after a month or two,gameplay is way too much repetative to keep people playing a long time.(normal people, there are weird people out there dressing like the hunter and stuff.weird.)
l4d2 was never fresh becouse it was the same shit over and over again.
buy l4d, play it and wait for l4d2 to get cheaper. you won't miss anything trust me =))

At first I read the third option in the poll as "Bungle"  Very Happy But yeah, I've been wondering this too. I've played L4D once or twice at my friend's, and it seemed fun enough. Still haven't gotten around to getting it myself for some reason.

Is bungle the same as juggle?

what about things like replay value, did that got improved? because i dont know how to imagine this game...im choosing a campaign and playing through it with different people everytime. the (special) infected stay the same, so after some games, whats the point?
did that somehow got improved, like with dynamic infected spawning? or did the original L4D already had that?
i watched some gameplay vids at youtube, but it would be neat if someone could describe the actual gameplay/ replay value, which i described in my first sentence. maybe im imagining it wrong...

oh: and seriously, whats with your signatures? is there like a script which chooses a new random wikipedia article every day, or do you change it manually (for some strange reasons  Laughing )?

there is no such thing.

nope l4d2 isn't an upgrade over l4d,it's a downgrade. l4d was pc, l4d2 is pure console. feels like a console

Quote:

dynamic spawning is broken. doesn't even work right.

we are too sexy to use the same signature for a long time.

lol, prolly a little harsh RipCurl  Smile

I dont have L4D2 yet but i do have L4D. Its a perfectly entertaining game for a few weeks, especially if you can get some friends to join you. But! it wont last longer than that.

My advice, wait for whichever one drops to budget price and buy that one. Don't buy either until then.

I bought the bundle when l4d2 was still in pre-order. I like them both but I don't play l4d1 anymore, maybe I'll start again when the dlc comes out. In l4d2 I play mostly versus, of course it's funnier with friends but it's fun too with random people if they know what they are doing. You missed a good promotion one week ago... l4d2 was half the price, i.e. 18,99€. I would recommend the bundle or wait for a price drop on l4d2.

ok, thanks to SuperTimo (<3) i've found how to get the uncut L4D2 for 53% off! i really am holding myself back here not to get it instantly just to get some more opinions:

for this money and the fact that its uncut, L4D2 > L4D. right? am i right, folks?

EDIT: whatever. amazon.co.uk FTW, uncut and they had it 57% off Smile
i'll see some of you in game Wink...next week -_- curse you, international mail delivery speed
