Game won't start
I just recently tried to play this game again (last time I played is like a month or two ago) and when I click play, steam would prepare Left 4 Dead 2 and that little box would disappear and nothing happened. A second later I saw "syncing" next to the title of the game in my library like the game just closed. I looked this up and I'm seeing that I need to reinstall my OS or something. I deleted the game and redownloaded and installed it again but nothing. I bought this game like around the time it came out, 4 or 5 years ago, and it never fails me until today. Do I really need to reinstall my OS?

If you have xfire you have to exit xfire before open steam ,xfire and steam do not work together at least that happen to me.

Re-install your Operating System? No.
Don't delete the local content through Steam. Manually delete the L4D2 folder and everything in it. Restart Steam. Re-install the game.

Did you fix this? I am having the same problem
This was a long time ago, I just tried running it now and it works fine. I forgot what the problem and solution was.

SOLVED. For others who have this problem, make a shortcut to the game from the exe in the game directory and add -steam to the end of the target field. That's what got it to work. It still doesn't work from the play button on Steam though which is a bit strange.
