* In the recently released the Passing campaign, it takes this trope to a more personal level. We already knew somebody from the original cast would die, but when you see [[spoiler:Bill's corpse lying right next to the power generator, still clutching on to his signature M16]], you just can't help but break a tear.

*** The Spitter also suffered the same thing but much much more painful. After she contracted the infection she vomited copious amounts of stomach acid that burned through her mouth and neck. Her stomach bloated and her neck adjust via stretching itself out

*** The Smoker started to feel horrendous pain in his abdomen and parts of his body started to grow out of control and leak noxious smoke. As his named might suggestion he is coughing due to the smoke and due to his small intestine being lodged in his throat.

**If you look up the hood of a Hunter you will discover that Hunters claw there eyes out. Whether he did this when he turned or after he turned was never explained. Either which way it was likely painful
**The Spitter's face was corroded by her mutation. It's likely this happened after she was turned and conscious. Also...she has a wedding ring on her hand.
**Pretty much all the mutations were likely painful and the victim was likely conscious when it happened. For clear examples....
***The Hunter clawed his eyes out when he turned. He also might of felt his leg muscles strengthening themselves to ludicrous degrees which is likely painful
***The Boomer clearly wasn't that big before the infection if you look at him (or her in the sequel). The infection likely caused him (or her) to suddenly expand while the body made the victim expel copious amounts of vomit
***The Spitter also suffered the same thing but much much more painful. After she contracted the infection she vomited copious amounts of stomach acid that burned through her mouth and neck. Her stomach bloated and her neck adjust via stretching itself out
***The Witch's fingers elongated suddenly and painfully. Your body cannot handle bones growing that fast no matter what. It's likely that the pain could be so bad that she still feels it after she turned which might be why she is crying.
***Same thing with the Charger and Tank. There bones and muscle masses growing in a short amount of time produced a disturbing amount of pain and agony. The Tank likely went mad/insane when it happened and the Charger might of remained sane enough...up until he caved his part of his head while trying to attack a non-infected.

** And on "The Sacrifice", listening to the last lines on the titular sacrifice for each character is heartbreaking. Especially a lot of the surviving characters' parting lines, many of which sound like they're about to break into tears. Especially the reaction of [[spoiler:either Zoey or Bill if the the other sacrifices themselves]].
** In the second game's Last Man on Earth mutation, it's just you and the Special Infected. As if the pants-wetting ParanoiaFuel wasn't enough, your character [[GoMadFromTheIsolation continues to speak as if the other survivors are still around]]. One particurly depressing example is in the Dark Carnival campaign while playing as Nick: "You finally got your wish, Ellis. We're in an amusement park ride."

* Ellis is normally extremely talkative and lighthearted about their predicament, but if Nick gets killed, a depressingly sad glitch may occur where Ellis doesn't talk at all until Nick is brought back, even while being ridden by a Jockey or pounced on by a Hunter.

** After the witch kills someone, there is a brief pause where she looks down and realizes what she's done. She then runs of crying again, clearly ashamed.

** This [[http://ashcomics.deviantart.com/art/Left-4-Dead-Broken-Promises-108701856 fan comic]] really hammers it in
* The Midnight Riders' song ''Save Me Some Sugar'', particularly after you have played The Sacrifice campaign and watched all those [[spoiler:Bill Tribute]] videos on Youtube. Even worse if you take the lyrics to heart and just went through a breakup.

* If any of your teammates are incapacitated when everyone else gets on the rescue vehicle, they will be left behind. As long as they're not dead, you'll get the sound of them screaming for your help playing over the cut scene of the rescue vehicle leaving, abandoning them to the zombie hordes. You ''will'' feel like an asshole.

* Some graffiti on the safe room walls.

walls can be kind of upsetting if you look into it.
