Is it worth it...?
I already own L4D2 on Xbox 360 - however, I have failed to purchase a Live sub and I don't see myself doing so in the near future. So that means I have to play L4D2 solo and have no access to DLC or custom maps. So my question is: is it worth it to buy an entirely new copy of L4D2 on Steam where I have access to the community and downloadable custom maps, or should I just stick with playing by myself on these boring ol' maps?

Why are you asking us, if you know whats available already? Playing with other people has its ups and it has its downs... ...and i'll just leave it at that.

Because I don't know exactly what you get with co-op and custom maps because I've never played it. I want to know if it's all that fun and whatnot.

You do know that pc has more to offer than the 360, right?

Well, I thought you understood that workshop = UNLIMITED content. Hundreds of maps and skin keep your game experience as fresh as you want, including an AI enhancement for bots. Bored of the default campaigns? Download a new one.

COOP = Win/Lose. Bots always follow you, and they kill common quickly. They're aimbots on SI sometimes, but other times will watch you die. Humans stray, they don't kill common, and they have personalities that you have to deal with. They'll also kick you from games for various reasons. Their skill level and reaction times vary a lot. The maps don't get any more exciting in Co-Op compared to single player, but making friends and playing online together never gets old.

In the end, I don't know what $5 is worth to you, so I can't answer "Is it worth it?". But assuming you're of age and/or have a job, $5 is less than the cost of a meal, and shouldn't even really put a dent in your funds.

Yes it is completely worth the bargain price of a mere five dollars. It's an awesome game, there are tons of custom maps - most of which are amazing - and with skins for everything from outfits to pills to guns you will be able to create the exact look that you want. Noobs and ragers and those who don't understand the concept of teamwork will test your patience, but for the most part that's a very small part of this game experience. Just buy the game.

Ah thank you, THIS is the information I was looking for.

Sweet. And if you're looking for friendly players, you can add me. And the people I play with are all really nice.

I definitely will add you! I won't have the game for a few days but I would really like to play with you when I finally purchase it. :)

The price will probably be higher by then, you do know that right? It's only a week long sale.

Yes I know it'll be back to its regular $19.99 price by Monday but I'm a lowly teen that has blown his leisure budget already so I won't be able to buy it for several more days. Wish I had noticed the sale beforehand. :|

Its $5, just buy it.
Also it has the worst community I've ever played with, maybe on par with CoD kids.
