Left 4 dead 1 should be free to play
i own left 4 dead 2 and i just realized, valve kind of gives you left 4 dead 1 for free as extra campaigns, so why not make the first game free because it would get more people into the series and get them interested enough to buy l4d2, it would also benefit to those who own gmod because we would be able to use non glithcy left 4 dead props, who's with me

People paid 50$ for l4d and a year after came l4d2 with twice the content (witch was promised to be as free dlc). People were ♥♥♥♥ed. Now for like 20$ you get l4d2 and as you mentioned basicly containing l4d in itself. I think it is still a delicate matter to them to release the original l4d anytime for free. (and you just asking for free stuff in the end)

I think the Left 4 Dead 1 community would pitch quite the ♥♥♥♥♥.

Making a game free 2 play such as l4d1 would just opent he floodgates and all sorts of imbeciles will join games and use cheats or jsut be general jerks without a concern as they can just go make a new steam account and repeat as needed if they get banned or such.

I don't care about if joe blow payed $20 (heck i payed for the game) or more for the game, good luck on ppl getting games for free others pay for, my concern is the first thing i mention though.

you know if it werent for tf2 becoming f2p, then the community might have died a long time ago

No, a Tonne of veterans left TF2 when it became F2P and players alike.

It wouldn't have died, it was growing at the time and it has growen to the point it has diminished quality due to the F2P model.

Also as i said earlier and others have said making F2P just brings in a lvl of player you would rather not play with, mostly trolls or ppl who can cheat without any side effects because all they have to do is make a new "free" account.

Certainly not for free. But not for 20$ like L4D2....How can the two games be the same price and so different at the same time? Makes no sesne. I say 5$..

What, those silly excuses for campaigns? They watered down a crap ton of stuff for Left 4 Dead 2 when they ported the original campaigns over, messed up the original survivors' hand placement, and overall made them a quantifiably worse experience from the original. Call me a purist, but the original Left 4 Dead is the better game of the two, and entirely worth the $20 it usually is.

You are correct, l4d1 was balanced properly in versus mode for "both teams" as opposed to part 2 where the survivors are OP with melee weapons, medkits galore also the maps in l4d2 are there to make it easier for the survivors.

I recall valve saying they capped the ceiling limits due to optimisations for framerates etc but we all know it was because they wanted ot nerf the hunter but could only do so by using an underhanded method so they nerfed the ceilings.

The original scoring system and dmg implementation in l4d1 for vs was great also, as you say for the price it is worth every penny.

acctually thats a pretty reasonable price

i bet the solution would not make it free just lower a litlle the price for l4d2 because as beez meant ld1 is definitily worth the price
