It appears that Left 4 Dead 2 is attracting quite a bit of negative feedback from valve's fans. Even more so that a boycott of just under 9,800 people are saying that they will not be buying the sequel when it is released... the reasons being...

- Significant content for L4D1 was promised, and never delivered

- Valve put little faith in L4D1 since they almost certainly started working on L4D2 right after release.

- The fact that L4D2 is nearly identical to L4D1 will decimate the community for both games.

- The announced date is not nearly enough time to polish content or make significant gameplay changes.

- The new character designs seem bland and unappealing so far.

- L4D2 is too bright to fit in with L4D1's visual aesthetic.

- The fiddle-based horde music is extremely disliked, though the differently orchestrated music is otherwise welcome.

- L4D2's release will result in a drop in quality and frequency for L4D1 content, even compared to before.

- The community has lost faith in Valve's former reputation for commitment to their games post-release

Personally I do agree, everything, except the characters, could and should have been released as DLC for L4D1, however since that's probably not an option anymore, they should focus on actually making some decent DLC afterwards for L4D1 and give it away free to anyone who has bought L4D2 by putting a promo code in the box... it MIGHT make up for it a little.

My thoughts.



- Significant content for L4D1 was promised, and never delivered
They aren't abandoning the game, they will still make DLC for L4D, this is confirmed. Yes, we would have seen more had L4D2 not been worked on, but L4D2 will surely be better.

- Valve put little faith in L4D1 since they almost certainly started working on L4D2 right after release.
Or, they thought it would be a big hit (as it was.) And wanted fans to get a sequel as soon as possible.

- The fact that L4D2 is nearly identical to L4D1 will decimate the community for both games.
No, it isn't nearly identical, it is dramatically different in so many aspects.

- The announced date is not nearly enough time to polish content or make significant gameplay changes.
AI Director 2.0 says hi.

- The new character designs seem bland and unappealing so far.
So did L4D's original models. There's 5 damn months till release.

- L4D2 is too bright to fit in with L4D1's visual aesthetic.
That's because it doesn't take place in the night time like the first game, you idiots.

- The fiddle-based horde music is extremely disliked, though the differently orchestrated music is otherwise welcome.

- L4D2's release will result in a drop in quality and frequency for L4D1 content, even compared to before.
So? L4D2 will be far better than anything they can add in L4D.

The community is full of fags.


Let's note that THERE IS NO WAY THEY CAN PUT HALF THIS STUFF FOR DLC IN L4D WITHOUT COMPLETELY BREAKING IT GAME PLAY WISE.

A boycott eh? I bet that by the time November comes around, those faggots will be queueing to get their preordered copies. As for Belth, let's create a Valve appreciation sister site :wink: lol x
