I think if you got the left 4 dead 2 it will also contain the map of left 4 dead and some extra maps, but the left 4 dead 1 is 1 group and part 2 is another group so I don't think you should play l4d first at all

You get everything grom L4D1 with the game. The whole story is around you in game, graffiti, messages, etc. There is no explicit narrative.

What seraph said, there is no "story" It's just a zombie apocolypse and 4 survivors who just met each other. There isn't even a definitive reason or explanation for the outbreak and the two games are far from related. It's actually pretty unique in that way, it's just a game designed to pick up and play and not put too much effort into.

The 2 games are different, but they both start out as 4 people meeting on top of a roof, they get an escape vehicle at the end of each campaign and it crashes or the driver is infected so it can transition to a new campaign

So you don't have to buy l4d1

I thought L4D2 started when you got off the beat-up boat to get more gas and go further along the coast. Maybe I was wrong.

No, and L4D2 now offers all L4D 1 campaigns free i think. Ive got them free from a legal copy and dont own L4D1. So if you own L4D2, you now own L4D1.

Playing Left 4 Dead for the story is like eating candy for the nutrition.
