    people are b*tchin about a sequel to an awesome game?
    you get new weapons, you get maps, new characters, and probably better graphics......what is there to complain about?
    These people are going to ruin it for the rest of us:[

    I still think L4D2 should be DLC just because it "mainly" the same experience that was L4D1 except with melee weapons.... It's looks like map pack for L4D1... I'll leave final judgment until it comes out.

    Lol this issue reminds me so much of my little cousin. Whenever it was someone else's birthday, his mom would buy him presents too because he would be upset.

    I must say, Adam sounds alot like Glenn Beck on his own show.
    I see Adam's point, though I must say that I didn't buy L4D.
    I played L4D on my friend's computer, it was boring and small.
    I also won't buy L4D2 becuase it looks like a copy of same game with slightly more things.

    Me and everyone in my circle is happy about L4D2; I don't understand why people would "hate" this? If they "hate" it so much, don't buy the game! But, your going to buy it anyway. Valve didn't have to release any L4D game till... I don't know... 2012. Instead, Valve thought to feed your zombie like appetite to some more fresh meat (L4D2), so if your happy about this, great!!! If your one of those that Adam is talk about, quit crying! Your going to buy the game anyway!

    I do not have a problem with Valve releasing another LFD just one year after the original. Ratchet and Clank, one of the best series, releases a new games almost every year. It seems like everyone just wants to complain no matter what the issue. I have an idea. How about Valve turns into Square Enix and releases the next LFD in 2020 Would that make everyone happy?

    I respectfully disagree. I don't think the issue is really the fact there is a L4D2 coming, its that part of the allure and promise of L4D was deep and valuable DLC which hasn't happened. I more than understand business is business and I LOVE Valve more than any other developer (well...except Bioware who is boss!) but they should hold up on their promise and commitment to L4D DLC. Now if they hold true even after the release of L4D2 thats another story but...

    Let's take Fallout for an example. Fallout 3. The DLC for Fallout has been very well done and is available in spades. There have been 3 packages already w/2 more coming this year! This is compared to L4D's 1 measly package that didn't really deliver all that much in my opinion (Survival mode was fun until you hit Gold once...then its boring). Now correct me if I'm wrong but Fallout only came out like a month before L4D did! Fallout has all this DLC AND the dev team is still at work on the sequel w/ Fallout New Vegas. The start contrasts between types of games aside Fallout HAS delivered on the promise of a product that keeps on giving while L4D2 seems, on the surface, more of a money grab than anything else.

    Furthermore: where is Half-Life 2 Ep. 3?!?!?!?! How long have we all been waiting for that (Black Mesa mod too but that's not Valve).

    Well said adam, To be honest L4D was one of my favorite games from last year, I see nothing wrong with Valve putting out L4D2. because i've already gotten my money's worth out of L4D. For over 100 hours multiplayer fun with friends 60$ isn't a big price. People are crazy to boycott Vavle, Valve is constantly trying to give there players with new content. Also a large amount of it being free (L4D dlc, TF2 dlc). And as Hellsinger12 said, when was the last bad game u ever played? Valve's has been putting out atleast one game a year for a while now and they've been nothing short of fantastic.

    Thank you Valve.

    Finally another person who is making sense.

    I mean the fact that there is a group on Steam that is going to boycott the game just makes me weep for humanity. As he said it is Valve. When was the last bad Valve game you played?

    I'll give you a few moments.

    Now tell me L4D2 is gonna be so bad cause it came out a year after the original.
