Left 4 Dead:

Favorite co-op game ever.

I have a propensity for suffering Boomer vomit, getting tongued by the Smoker, and getting pounced by Hunters, all one after the other, not necessarily in that order.

Fond memories also of getting punched clear the FUCK off of the roof of Mercy Hospital during that campaign's final siege. I was like, "Oooooh SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT."

The groups I'm in are always mean to the Witch. :(

Also has some of the funniest mods I've ever seen in a game. Where's my damn pants?! (Swearing, NSFW)

EDIT: GET ON THE FLO, GET ON THE FLO.

EDIT: Lead-up to that now-infamous L4D porn movie?

EDIT: GR-GR-GRABBIN PEELZ. I swear, this game has spawned more madness than Team Fortress 2. And that's no simple feat.

EDIT: Words fail me.

EDIT: Francis hates techno mixes.

EDIT: Where did you come from, where did you go? Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

EDIT: RIGHT NOW, YEAH!

EDIT: Bwahaha!

EDIT: The Gonk makes anything better.

EDIT: Oops.

I tried playing it on Sunday, my friend wanted to see how well I'd do. Easy Mode, Death Toll. It was fun, though I was pretty shit, and managed to also get hit by the Witch at one point. In the end, the whole team did get on the boat, and with green HP.

I have to say, the game is art in videogame form. The way the levels are designed, down to detail, all the messages on the walls, the teamwork. Valve have really won me over.

Left 4 Dead is a fun game, me and my friend played through two of the campains in like 30 minutes. I know it sounds hard and it was but he has beat the game like 8 times so he knew exactly were to go.

LOOK OUT LEON IT'S A ZOMBIE!... WHAT ELSE IS IT GOING TO BE! -_-'
Phear them.
The reason I love Left 4 Dead is that no matter how good a shot you might be, no matter how well you might know the levels, you WILL fail if you don't have the help of your buddies. There are plenty of games that encourage teamwork, but not enough that require it.

Epic moment:

No Mercy. We're in that building with the cubicle farm. We make it down to the lobby and have a VERY close encounter with a well-hidden witch.

Surviving that, I make it out to the street only to get slimed by a Boomer coming from behind a van. Horde zombies start rushing me. I shotgun the Boomer, kaboom, and I find someone's thrown a pipe bomb to lure the Horde away from me. Pipe bomb lands near one of the cars with a car alarm, and BOOM, sets off the alarm, Horde zombies start pouring in, everyone runs like Hell across the street to get into the Safehouse.

Epic.

There is a cubicle farm in No Mercy?

I only recall the one in Dead Air...
They Called Me Mad!! I decided to show them all; but when I looked on my works, oh mighty, I despaired: for it made me realize they were right.

Moar epic moment:

Versus Mode. No Mercy. With two players on either team, myself and my teammate playing the Infected for this round, we've killed two survivors but failed to gain any ground on the other two.

They reach the safe room on the ground floor of the hospital, but are being attacked by a Horde after getting slimed by a Boomer. Being so close to the safe room, they decide to try and take down the Horde before they close the room up. My teammate and I, having respawned as Hunters, take advantage of their stupidity; we rush into the fray, run into the safe room through the confusion, then turn around and pounce the survivors. We were laughing our asses off for at least thirty seconds.

Dah, Dead Air, right. I get those two confused because it's just urban ruins until you actually get to the airport/hospital, respectively..

my friend and his team once, in No Mercy waited until they all got hunter, and waited at the top of the elevator. When the door opened, each of them pounced their designated target. Owned.

Steam, will you ever stop being awesome?

Shouldn't it be called Left 5 Dead?
It would be a lot easier for me if you imagine there's something funny or interesting here.

Left 4 Dead in the day?

Awesome!

Another suggestion on another board was Left 2 Die.
 
And according to the Left 4 Dead entry people are already complaining about the sequel.

What the fuck ever. God, you know what? The internet can go collectively violate itself with a rake.

Huh, originally supposed to be a Mission Pack Sequel?

Feh. I suppose that's grounds for annoyance, but I'm going to wind up playing it at LAN cafes anyway, so I'm not very bothered.

People always complain about new stuff. Ignore them.

I on the other hand, don't think Valve can create anything taht isn't just consentrated awesome. They're not game developers, they're artists.

[ed.] Fixed.

It's Valve, not Steam.

Steam is the content delivery platform.

I once killed an entire room of zombies by hitting them with my shotgun!grin

Left Eye
I think the main complaints were that this is too early and they should just release an expansion pack, but what's done is done and the sequel already looks awesome.

@Galeros: Ever killed a zombie with a Medkit?
