Added DiffLines:

* IKnewIt: Many expected that Left 4 Dead will ''not have'' a 3rd game/2nd sequel (courtesy of Valve) as the game's developer, Turtle Rock studios, had announced a SpiritualAdaptation named ''VideoGame/Back4Blood''.


* Boomer vomit has a sort of cooldown effect. If a boomer explodes on someone that has been vomited on, the effects won't stack and will wear off when the vomit was timed to normally.

* BeamMeUpScotty: Although the line "WHOO! BUMPER CARS!" is often misattributed to Francis thanks to popular VideoGame/GarrysMod videos, he never actually says that in either of the games. The voice clip used in those videos is actually that of Mattias Nilsson from ''VideoGame/{{Mercenaries}}''.

* All playable infected make noise when they spawn or attack. If someone killed you quickly after they spawned, they picked up on your location with surround sound and shot through a wall.

* The German version of the game is censored for violence, and is more difficult as a result (you can't tell if a Hunter is on fire because the flames would be censored) so a number of weapons are ported from ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}''. The Australian version of the game is also censored, but they don't get bonus weapons

* HeyItsThatVoice: Most of the NPC Survivors are played by guys who also did voices for ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. For the curious, the boat man is the Sniper, the church guy is the Scout, the infected helicopter pilot is the Spy and Pyro, and the pilot in Dead Air is the Demoman and Heavy.
** Bill is [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 Father Grigori]].
** Zoey is [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Cortana]] and was formerly [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach and Toad]]. For some, [[BackyardSports it might feel funny to use a baseball bat as her]].
** Coach is [[TheWire Cutty Wise]] and, appropriately, [[Series/TheWalkingDead Tyreese]].
** Ellis is [[Series/TheKilling Jamie Wright]] and [[VideoGame/InFamous2 Cole MacGrath]].
** You might recognize Hugh Dillon (Nick) from {{Series/Flashpoint}} or his singing career.
** The infected have been voiced by Music/MikePatton, FredTatasciore and Creator/DeeBradleyBaker.
*** The [[FredTatasciore Tank]] sounds particularly [[TheIncredibleHulk Hulk-ish]].
* Valve is infamously known for their [[ScheduleSlip Valve Time]] where they either set a date for a release for something and it gets delayed (sometimes several times) or they don't mention a release date at all until the product is good and ready to ship out. ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' is one of the few exceptions to the rule; the game was released one year after the original ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' due to Valve wanting to prove that they ''can'' release on a fixed schedule. This action caused a BrokenBase and it's best to leave it at that.

Added DiffLines:

** The survivors from the first game originally had [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/left4dead/images/f/f4/The_Survivors_alley2-1280.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20081111070000 completely different models]] that looked more like survivalists. When Valve took over development, they were changed to make them easier to tell apart from the infected.

** Speaking of the [=AWP=], it contains the same damage properties as the [=M60=].
