this.

Youre not even playing l4d2 zoomer.
You missed the era of alltalk on with 8 copies of HLDJ playing simultaneously screaming niggers, rap music, chrono trigger, barney the dinosaur, and super mario kart while hank hill yells at you about how hes going back for the propane and fuck you if you dont help him as your other two teammates get pounded and pounced into the ground and sprayed with animated gaping assholes and blown out maggot filled vaginas.

Truely we lived like kings.

New coop games are constantly releasing and are often better (pic related) but fail to break even 10k players because all you faggots do is play the same goddamn games every day in a fleeting attempt to capture decade-old nostalgia when you were kids.

I hope you're all universally disappointed by Back 4 Blood.

No that's not the reason. The real reason is zoomers' brain can't comprehend team based gameplay.

L4D1 is better

Deep Rock was fun, but got stale after a bit. I'm not sure if the way they are doing modding is the right way either, though I do still appreciate it.

>>404913
Is that a joke? 2 has the same maps and more. The only difference for 1 is that has fewer weapons and infected classes

cope harder l4d2 is godawful by todays standards and is solely carried by its writing.

it's no wonder back for blood fucking sucks balls after an hour of playtime because it doesn't even have good characters
>>
>>407146
But back 4 blood is left 4 done if it was bad. From enemy designs to horde mechanics, it's generally inferior. Left 4 Dead 2 is simpler, but still very decent by today's standards.

as much as i hate this, its true. l4d has ass gameplay; only thing making it alive are mods and the characters. even then its at its deathbed, has been for fucking years cause valve doesnt care to milk the opportunities for sequels. even most custom campaigns offer the same boring linear gameplay but what made them memorable was the storylines. and if the community update is anything to go by there's no chance in hell valve would do anything with l4d ever again. atleast until they shit out l4d 1.5 out of nowhere like they did with half life, with a character that nobody even liked from a series that was retconned to the shitter

Zoomers will never know the glory of meeting some random stranger online and syncing up your music spam and custom voicelines together in an orchestra of death around you and then never see each other again like ships passing in the night.

https://viewsync.net/watch?v=e8TZbze72Bc&t=11&v=9-gSJW3sHXE&t=17&mode=solo

They will only ever know about their shitty for babies safezoned voicelines in games like overwatch, that at best can be macroed together to say QUIRKY things.

They will never hear the rage of triggering a marine's ptsd and hearing him go absolutely fucking berzerk slathering bubbling spit into the mic from how mad you made him by repeatedly calling him a nigger using your .wav files of rap music.

Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 are great games, but the community in them is pretty bad imo

Especially in versus mode, since it was basically 'solved' in that the most effective way to play is just take shotguns and rush through the level as fast as possible since nothing matters besides making it as far as you can, and plus it makes less zombies spawn, gives less chances for the special infected team to attack, and overall just makes it boring
>>
>>407146
it's not just the writing. it's a lot of little things that add up. for example, look at the handcrafted changes between difficulty options. while expert does obvious shit like make tanks tankier and do more damage, the main differences are bringing up damage from common infected and friendly fire. essentially, the devs take these 2 features you previously didn't need to think much about (chip damage from normal zombies and friendly fire) and turn them into serious hazards.
>>
>>407703
Isn't most of the community made up of actual children?

> essentially, the devs take these 2 features you previously didn't need to think much about (chip damage from normal zombies and friendly fire) and turn them into serious hazards.
what the fuck are you smoking? a shitload of common infected are more threatening than 3 tanks, how the fuck is increasing their hit damage somehow a 'little' thing? it's like you just started playing the game and praising it everywhere

shut the fuck up retard. I'm talking about for the average player. not some versus faggot with 300 hours. kill yourself
>>
>>407829
>>408679
also your critical reading and thinking skills are horrible.
I said that specifically QUADRUPLING COMMON INFECTED DAMAGE from advanced to expert is to extend chip damage from common infected from being something sort of dangerous to seriously dangerous
>on advanced if you let a single normal zombie get into melee range of you, you only lose 5 hp
>on expert you lose 20 hp
tell me you mouth breathing internet autist, how many times does a stray zombie have to manage to get a single hit in to knock you down in advanced vs expert? tell me how chip damage from stray hits from zombies DOESN'T go from something basically negligible to a serious hazard?
>>
>>408679
>>408684
not him but Ive never calculated any of your nerd shit because it doesnt even come into play for me.

>he thinks 300 hours is a lot

you shouldnt even be allowed to join versus without having expert on at least 2 campaigns.

I used to clear them with bots for the lulz or to warm up.

Dudeā€¦ fucking kill yourself. Nobody gives a shit about how ebin pwnage you are at this 15 year old game. In the scale of the average not howling autist player, they have seen everything the game has to offer well before 300 hours and moved on.

nah thats just what shitters tell themselves because they are shit at video games and this is their way to defend you their ego.

I assure you that everyone that is shitting on you are having a blast listening to music on discord or blasting custom hldj dj tracks in game.

And not only are they absolutely blowing out your tight white boi asshole, but they are freestyle djing it and shittalking you and probably on everything from weed, xanax, lsd, and Ive known a few guys that play on pcp.
>>
>>413747
you sound like a neurotic aspie.
>>
>>411887
why do you keep trying to make this about skill when you're literally playing a rail shooter for 1000 hours?
i beat the entire game on its hardest difficulty just like every other mouthbreather is capable of. I didn't even use degenerate strategies. just kited zombies and clicked on heads.
>>
>>415209
thats kind of the point i was making
you dont even need other humans and can clear it with bots
its EASY

>>415015
you sound like a loser that plays video games TRIHARD SERIOUS like some wannabe e-sports faggot instead of having fun with your friends for thousands of hours and sadly you actually keep active track of that shit and at the end of the day youre a shittalking silver player at best that cant even figure out how to beat videogames vs non thinking ai that walk at you in straight lines. Youre so fucked up with your esports shit that you even take it to online anonymously and when someone points out your obvious failures and realistic situation and bursts your overinflated esports ego bubble you resort to namecalling like some 5th grade bully. But if you dont learn what youre doing wrong, then youre just going to get kicked out of stuff over and over, because despite what you might think, you aren't even competing at a casual level and are setting off negative ticks for those other players that you dont even understand what they are because again youre below the casual skill level for that game. Nobody ever gets kicked for being too good at a game.

This. Melee weapons ruined the game.
>L4D1
>hoard comes in, everyone gets to a corner to defend with pistols
>everyone sticks together since you're just safer that way
>the moment a special gets on anyone, everyone rushes to help
>L4D2
>hoard comes in, everyone just keeps running towards the safe room and uses melee to kill and push zombies out of the way
>everyone is speedrunning to the saferoom at all times, fall behind and get left behind
>if you get nailed by a special infected, better hope another player is looking directly at you or no one will notice
The new infected were a needed addition, the new weapons outside of melee were mostly more of the same(cept grenade launcher), and the defib packs rarely come into play at all. They could have just added the new infected to L4D1 with the new levels and been done. Or actually add in a wide selection of weapons instead of "SMG, SMG with worthless silencer, AK-47, M-16, SCAR, Shotgun, SPAS-12, Desert Eagle".

> l4d2 is godawful by todays standards
today's standards are dogshit for 70 IQ niggerbrains and perpetually frightened pussyfaggots, dumbed down. sterile, safe and utterly devoid of character they slip into the void without so much as a blip. you'll be hearing about l4d decades from now though and you might want to wonder why protip it isn't just nostalgic boomers
>>
>>416039
While I agree with almost everything you are saying, L4D2 versus is probably the most degenerate least fun valve pvp you could have possibly played, second maybe only to gmod darkrp raiding
the special infected were not designed to be played by human hands, they are just too simple. for the human team, if the special infected are played perfectly it doesn't make the game much harder just more tedious, and playing special infected perfectly is so easy you could literally read off a flowchart for what to do while playing the game.
actually good source asymmetrical PVP games like natural selection, zombie panic and oldschool gmod zs are literally better in every single way, and still had the same social atmosphere.

anon when I was a kid we'd get off early for highschool drive home until like 2pm and wed fuck and then wed go back to the last few classes and then go back home and wed fuck until our parents showed up.
Or we'd watch toonami or whatever until the other kids got out.
Then wed drink and do drugs and then play video games in a lan for the rest of the night using the crts/consoles we kept in our cars.

anon you play video games alone without any friends on a globally interconnected planet and choose to play a game 15 years past its prime thats basically as old as you are, that you arent even good at.
Your entire existence is a shell of a personality that is just this oozing mass of stale regurgitated catch phrases that stopped being funny last thursday.
