Am I the only one who finds L4D1 better then L4D2?
Now I dont want to sound like im ranting or anything but when I look at L4D1 I see a Dark/Terror/Survival/Action/Adventure Now when I look at L4D2 I see.. A parody of the original.

Yeah thats right a PARODY.

So lets start here

1. The survivors They don't really take the apocolaypse seriously In L4D1 Its like

"Bill: Get to the chopper so we can Get out of this heck-Hole!"

L4D2:

"Ellis: RUUUNN TO JIMMY GIBBS JR (ノಥДಥ)ノ"

2. The horde alerts.

I find the horde alerts Dumb to I mean a moving parade float? yeah thats REALLY loud instead of running and jumping across to the safehouse lets just make alot of noise!

3. The style.

Back in the gold days of L4D1 Every map (but the sacrifice) Was dark and thats what made it Scary But now almost every map is in day time which makes it.. not as terrifying as It used to be

I play both games. But I would never play the ports on L4D2. I try to make L4D1 just as special as much as I can.

Agreed, the ports on L4D2 suck because they had to add those annoying special new infected :/

I 100% agree on the dark tone. I wouldn't say the Survivors don't care for the place, I mean, Bill did Sacrifice himself just to save the team. Let's all face it, Rochelle is more ugly than the Spitter. The Ports were sht, and they killed Bill. I don't see Gordon Freeman dying, so why Bill? All these Ports and DLCS for L4D2 were the last cube in the cup already full.

Im glad that they made the sacrifice optional for L4D1 because one time I tried to sacrifice myself for the bots and then some stupid jockey got me -_-
I still dont understand the jockeys. how does it cause damage just to ride on your back?

And yes, The ports were Terrible. the panic events in Left 4 dead 1 some sound effects were added like the car alarm forklift in death toll they forgot to add that sound effect for the car

Im totally loving L4D1 ... L4D2 has its moments but I think the fact that the old adage stands... The first is always better because it was the first...

Im glad other people saw the clear and obvious PARODY styling of L4D2. I liked L4D2, but solely for the added content, I gave it love and didn't hate. At the end of the day though I load up the first game, because I know it wasnt a rushed piece of crap cash grab that happened SOLELY because Valve let Chet Faliszek make the call on what to do with the L4D license. THE END.

absolutely

l4d2 makes the old maps seem somewhat frivolous too they just dont fit in that game at all

Gameplay, level design and pretty much most things are better in L4D2 aside from the tone, atmosphere, dialogue & characters of L4D1.

>Most of the things are better then L4D2

I agree with you in some ways but..

*Gate makes alot of noise even though you cant hear it from 2 miles away!*

*Lets take some random car out the mall! this thing is WAY better then the truck in crash course!*

*Generator takes 16 galloons of gas even though its not even a gas generator!*

Bill: You know who runs around with gas cans? Idiots.

*Burger sign makes lots of noise!*

*Chopper appears for no reason at carnival!*

*Parade float makes alot of noise*

"Hey Im the last one left on expert because the bots are Stupid! *Gets jockeyed* FUUUUUUUU"

Do you see what I mean now?

Not so fast, master treadbolt. There are few things that I want to correct on here. Want to know how Jockeys' can damage ya? Let someone ride on your back, squeeze your head and steer ye in anyway exactly as a human ridin' a horse then and only then you will know how it does smash your legs, head and back for sure. That Chopper Pilot saw the fireworks high up in the sky so he knew there were people surviving by themselves there, so he thought about rescuing them? Perhaps? Left 4 Dead 2 is not bad, it's just that Left 4 Dead's better.

agree, l4d better than l4d2

And just to sum it up there is SUDDENLY a chopper there, Why? Also why go to a carnival in the first place? Middle of a zombie apocolaypse and you think this is the time for carnivals? NO also There would be no supplies at a carnival yeah sure Candy and "peach comber" is gonna help you in the zombie apocolaypse From the survivor prospective it really looks like they are killing zombies for Fun not to survive.
