    I love the people who are boycotting. Why bother? No one is making them buy the game and Valve said they would keep the DLC coming. Valve customers should be greatful they get the DLC for free which is actually the problem. Valve has raised a bunch of free loaders. They think 5 new campaigns, 20 new weapons, 3 new types of zombies, a new AI director, and new game modes, should all be given to them for free. When we're playing L4D2 in November with all of the cool new content, they'll realize just how dumb they are.

    Let me get this straight; my post on another soapbox is yanked, almost immediately, when the only possible offending language was "scantily clad warrior princess", and yet THIS STUFF IS STILL UP AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS!!! A little disparity, there, don't you think, Mr/Ms moderator?

    I do not know what is more frustrating, people boycotting the game because L4D on had 1 DLC, or the fact that some are comparing it to Fallout 3.

    Get this straight you bitching anti-new game rejects, Fallout 3 is from Bethesda, L4D is from Valve. Bethesda works on mostly single player RPG/Action games. DLC for a single player is a lot easier than DLC for a multiplayer WITH such an advance AI. Besides, you got the Survivor Pack for free, so be grateful!

    Next up is Valves "lie" about keeping DLC for L4D. God, I cannot tell you how many times this gets annoying to hear. Just because a new game is coming out DOES NOT MEAN that they are dropping the old game. If that was true, Halo 3 would be dead by now. Not to mention Mass Effect, which still has DLC coming out EVEN THOUGH ME2 comes out next year. And hell, Dead Space still gets DLC. It is a little thing called MULTITASKING. Remember, Valve won't put their entire company into making a single game. There are different branches, meaning that even though the same people who designed L4D might be working on L4D2, there is another team working on the DLC.

    And those that think their petition and boycotting will actually do something, think again. The people boycotting and petitioning are a minority. There are MILLIONS of L4D2 supporters, compared to a couple thousand antis. Guess what? Majority wins, L4D2 is STILL COMING OUT. All the bitching and moaning got you NOWHERE. So what if Valve loses a few players, they will gain even more from L4D2 than what they lose. All your petitions and whining didn't even delay the release date by an hour!

    So, get a life, and accept that you are insignificant to Valve and their supporters, and will never make a difference to their company.

    Valve has spoiled us SO MUCH that we can't handle L4D2 in a year. A couple years back, Valve produced Orange Box, giving us 3-5 AMAZING games (depending on if you already played HL2 and Ep1) for an amazing price. Until today, they still shower us with free updates and new free content for Team Fortress 2. They even gave us the Survival pack for L4D, free of charge. Naturally, everyone sees daylight, new characters, and new weapons as an add-on to a game that could be free. After Valve has given us so much, people really think that if Valve COULD fit L4D2's content into L4D, they wouldn't? Come on! If it's not DLC, it's something much, much greater. How can we question Valve while year after year they release mindblowing games with no sign of slowing?

    My ONLY complaint about L4D2 is that I'm not near done playing L4D. I could wait a few more years if it meant I'd see HL2 Ep3 or Portal 2 sooner.

    Here are the issues, I have and other L4D gamers like me experience, but before that...
    I'm going to buy L4D2, because its going to kick ass and I've gotten more than my money's worth with L4D (and it's getting old).
    Okay, anyway... The reason gamers are bitching about this early release is because they're greedy. They feel betrayed that Valve has come out with new content so soon and feel that since L4D was incredibly short, the "deserve" L4D2 for free. I laugh every time read or hear this from someone, because like Adam said (Amen), "Valve doesn't OWE you anything!" Everyone's said this over and over, and that is if you think you're getting this for free, its not going to happen. Valve calls the shots, and you either get it or get lost, make room for the people who want the game.

    Adam you missed the whole point of the argument... first off left4dead is great the real problem people are complaing about is because the first game only has 4 F&*%#@$ levels for $60$ which is would be a rip off. But like must fans i waited for any DLC...and waited...and waited...and waited..... But i think what really frustrated us off was that when VALVE eventually relased the SURVIAL PACK it added a grand total of < 0 > campaigns and instead wants us to buy a whole new $60$ game...and dont feed me that S*%^ about there great business plan...fact in point selling DLC makes money, lots of $$$$$$$ yea the survial pack was for free but only proves the point that nothing for free is ever worth it

    Adam is right "Valve owes you nothing". Notice the title says "Left 4 Dead 2", not left for dead DLC. I do how ever have a problem with Valve. Porting games to the PS3 is such a pain in the ass and difficult, oh Boo who. It's pathetic that Valve has to PORT games from one system to the next to make money by being cheat skates. I'm sure if they built a game from the ground up most of their tears would dry up. Then again there is another problem with this suggestion. The PS3 isn't the easiest to develop for. As not so Major developers wine about, how difficult it is to make a game for the PS3 (Time consuming). Well just cry me a river with your million dollar profits. So sad your making so much money, yet it takes to long to get that money.

    I agree and also with a new game it opens up a bunch of oppertunities, such as fresh new faces in the game, a better story line (which i personally love to have and believe the first game should have had) and also better guns and the bugs can be worked out that DLC cant fix...

    so for all you boycotting morons think about what is being put into the next edition of this great franchise and who cares if its not DLC grow a pair and buy it and if you cant offord it get up off you ass and get a job and stop freeloading in your mothers basement on the computer

    I think the issue here is that it's such a big change for Valve to release a game's sequal right after the original. Half-Life 2 had a 5 year development cycle, Team Fortress 2 had a 8 year development cycle, heck even Portal 2 is taking more than a year to make.

    So probably people assume that this game will not be an improvement over the original, most people probably just assume it's the original during day. Which it might very well be and the ratings will show.

    Now moneywise. There are tons of people that have yet to get the original, me included, who are waiting on a pricecut. And now for there to suddenly be a sequal? Now we're stuck. By the time we do get a good pricecut and buy the game the new one will probably be out. Which moves onto my next theory on why-

    Multiplayer. This is arguably the only part of the game anyone plays and we live in an age of online. So we could end up seeing something happen like some people will get L4D1 and then when they try to play online they can't find alot of people. And then there's the issue that people that get L4D2 won't be able to play online as easy as before. Because a large percentage of the population might still be playing L4D1 and it becomes a constant disc swap situation.
