Left 4 Dead 1 vs. Left 4 Dead 2
Some people like Left 4 Dead 1 better than Left 4 Dead 2, and others like Left 4 Dead 2 more than they like Left 4 Dead 1. Personally, I like Left 4 Dead 1 for a variety of reasons, some of the most significant being that L4D1 has a better feel to it, and that I friggin' hate jockies. But anyways, L4D, even though me along with many other people think it's better than it's sequel, has only 1/10 of L4D2's players (I looked it up once). Me and a friend of mine started a group to help change that. I advise you all to check out L4D1 and then try it out.

L4D1 was a better game overall. A better atmosphere, it was a bit tougher without defibs and adrenaline. AND LEGS!
But since everything but the legs was moved over, and I can always choose not to use defibs if I want to, I literally see no reason to play the first one anymore. Especially since the community is dead.

I still think it has a better atmoshpere. The reason this group was started was because the community is pretty much dead. It's an effort to revive it.

I think this won't work. Sorry I'm just being honest. L4D2 is the same game as L4D1, however whit all new things you can try out. Besides there are new SI that makes the game for the survivors even harder (specially in versus) defibs are rare (depending on the difficulty or how good you're doing on the game) and it has melee weapons. You see, it has everything the first game had, plus a little something else, that adds variety to the game. And now all campaings of the first game are availabe. So now I also have the campaings of the first games and all of the 4 old survivors to play whit. I mean, I just don't see a reason to play the first one anymore. A reason for me to play the first game would be the campaings, that are a lot darker and atmospherical (I dont even know if this word exists but I think you understood) and the survivors had a lot more of feel to it. They were more charismatic. But now that we have the first survivors and campaings, I don't see a reason.

L4D1 was a lot better IMO. Atmosphere was way better, it didn't have jockeys and chargers, better survivors, etc.

I like L4D1 much better, but then again I'm a speedrunner so I notice all the small changes, and I only play the campaign. The weapons in L4D1 have a more arcade style to them, and there may be more in L4D2 but they are more solid in the first game and you don't really need more weapons. Also common infected are fewer in L4D1 but more dangerous/annoying, it just feels better killing them.

Also the L4D1 maps are in L4D2, but Valve patched most skips/shortcuts (like in NM1/CC2) so it's much more linear. Versus mode in L4D1 sucks though compared to L4D2 and I guess that's what most people play.

Left 4 Dead 2 does have many things that Left 4 Dead 1 had, but I played Left 4 Dead 2 before I played Left 4 Dead 1 (and while I played L4D2 I mainly played the L4D1 maps), and I can honestly and easily say that I enjoyed the first game significantly more.
