Yep, it's still alive.
I like this game. I really like this game. Okay, I LOVE it! It's a lot like real life, or, more reasonably, a roller coaster. It has it's ups, and it definitely has its downs (If you'll pardon the pun). There's the beginning where you boot up the game for the first time with no idea what's in store, filled with both excitement for the new skills you'll develop and the new friends you'll meet, and dread for the challenges you'll come across, the enemies you'll face, both infected and living. There are those moments where you slip up. It's alright, even professionals miss a cr0wn shot or two here and there, it's no big deal. Or maybe you forgot to push that Boomer back before shooting him and now your entire team is covered in vomit. Or maybe you sneezed and missed that soaring Hunter's head, leaving your only living friend incapacitated and bleeding to death. But then there's those moments when you've got no ammo, you're black and white and have no health items to chug super quick. Then a Smoker shows up behind you, grabs you with his tongue, and like a badass you put a single bullet into his face with a single pistol from a mile away, saving yourself from certain death.
Now, the achievements...
These things are RIDICULOUSLY hard unless you either A: Know what you're doing, or B: Have a solid team at your back willing to put up with your ♥♥♥♥ while you half-arsedly waltz into their line of sight or waste the last bottle of pills "On accident". For example, whoever came up with the idea for the achievement "Nothing Special" is either a glutton for punishment or an absolute ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥! "Zombie Genocidist" takes years to get, seriously, I've been playing this game for 3 years and have only just unlocked it! Oh, and don't even get me started on the versus achievements!
But once you get past that, you learn to love the game through all its flaws and all of the "♥♥♥♥ YOU!" moments on modded servers with umpteen Tanks spawning all at once and surrounding you with their "Want sum butt ♥♥♥♥?" grins pasted across their faces. Because it's one of the greatest games ever released. Way better than the sequel...
Or is it..?
