Originally posted by Dylan CN:They break immersion?The Jockey?This zombie game in which the survivors can take dozens of zombies pounding on them, being smashed by huge zombies and pills & med-kits instantly heal them and every survivor has an outline around them when they're behind walls.And the Jockey breaks immersion?Well I can't argue with you about immersion, that's subjective, but the Jockey is a great addition to the special infected, it's perfectly balanced along with the other special infected. It's small and does small amounts of damage but can move the target around, whereas the hunter and charger do tons of damage but can't move (and smoker is somewhere inbetween). Valve did a great job with this game & the special infected.

Left 4 Dead 2's tone is a lot of things, but depressive is certainly not the main-tone of it. In contrast to L4D1, just think about how many of the maps are in bright-day, feature colorful locations and just how often the survivors quip, make one-liners and joke about stuff. The markings on the walls of safe-rooms aren't even depressing half the time. The Jockey is no more "undepressive" than the left arm of the charger, the amazing obesity of the boomer, the clowns in Dark Carnival that honk when you hit them, the gnome in Dark Carnival or the man in Dead Center that wants cola.
Originally posted by Captain Person-Thingy:L4d2 now has all l4d1 maps, with all l4d2 special infected, and L4D 1 has no servers left, so because of jockeys and how unseriously Valve took the sequel, I can no longer relieve those dark moments, If i wanted sillyness, I'd play Team Fortress 2, L4d is a series built for a depressing feel, just listen to the l4d1 menu theme, it feels bad that they just became sellouts by making a zombie which humps you. Not to mention they aren't suprising or cool, you just sigh when you get grabbed by one.
