Only for the campaign and survival modes. Scavenge and VS. are best avoided due to toxic communities.

Versus isn't toxic, they just want serious players to play against real people.

Just play with friends or single player for a bit till you get the basics.

This is one of the greatest games ever created. Well over 600 hours in Left 4 Dead 2 alone not including time spent on original and in the Xbox 360 versions of the game. The game randomly places enemies and supplies so every match is different.

Like Mr. Buddy says, stick to campaign or survival modes, at least early on. The vs. mode IS toxic. If you feel the need for abuse and vile curses to be thrown your way join a vs. match and make a mistake (which you will if you are new). Campaign mode is generally friendly. You will occasionally run into jerks but I'd say about 90% of my campaign matches are friendly if not more. There really aren't many games out there that so seamlessly merge coop and single player experiences quite so well. Payday games are pretty close but not quite as polished IMHO.

Not saying a liar but just checked and I actually have 750 hours in Left 4 Dead 2 and another 100 in L4D 1 and I've never been VAC banned.

A lot of campaign games going on at any moment. Tons of cool mods on the workshop. Definitely worth the money!

Survival games aren't dead. I play survival games a lot, and there are a lot of players and game lobbys for that mode. Campaign also has a lot of games going as well.

No I'm not saying only play those modes, I'm just saying that those modes aren't dead. The only mode I'm pretty sure is close to being dead is most mutation modes, but that's it. The game has a lot of players all the time.

Mr. Buddy is saying to only play survival and campaign because he believes versus has a bad community.. -_-

L4D2 is a team game. If you don't like the idea of teamwork, this game is not for you.

Survival is a great gamemode IMO, but you should definitely play singleplayer first, then campaign, and then maybe survival.

Playing singleplayer first ensures you get the basics of the game down before you start playing with others. That way, you'll make less mistakes due to being completely clueless.

Also, survival is REALLY hard, and there are also a whole lot of idiots on there too.
90% of the time you get a horrible team.
So if I were you, buy the game, but play only with people you know or think would be good players.

And yes, the VS and Scavenge communities are terrible.
You will rarely get placed on a team that is good or winning.
Play these 2 gamemodes LAST, when you are really good at the game and can communicate with players very well.

Remember, L4D2 is a team game.

Get it for survival & campaign modes, vs is a mixed bag.. and most people are not friendly on vs games, if you want to play vs then go on the big modded servers with 20 players because you can't get kicked from most of them. You do get a-holes in regular campaign mode as well, but not as likely to come across them on there.

Might have had something to do with the 506 TF2 achievements.

ill be honest, this game is amazing. every 1 who has played this or put time in to this game wants a third game badly. I have well over 800 hours in the game i think. i know its almost 1000. I know some people with over 2000 hours. This game is almost flawless. To be even more honest, it is so good that i would give a 10/10 and would buy again.
GenericMason Jul 14, 2014 @ 8:17pm 
This is a must buy.

Just FYI Zombie_Freak115, every Steam Discussions page has a Reviews tab on the top right corner so you NEVER HAVE TO MAKE A SHULD I BYE THIZ? thread ever again.

To recap: SHULD I BYE THIZ threads: Bad.
Clicking Reviews tab: Good.

Now, I'm gonna do you a solid and give you a link for the L4D2 Reviews tab, but just to be perfectly clear, there's one on every Steam game's Hub/Discussions page, top right.
