I love all the L4D1 Characters! That said, I think I mostly play as Francis or Bill.
Favorite L4D1 Campaign:
“The Dam (Or “Dam it”)” is hands down my favorite campaign. But if I gotta pick a campaign that made it into the game, I’ll choose Blood Harvest. I really enjoy all the areas in that campaign where you gotta be extra careful, as there could be unseen infected obscured by the vegetation. The dead cows with their faces eaten, the lawn mower basement, Oh and that crescendo event in the cornfield! Love it.
I’m not a big fan of the L4D2 characters, but Nick is probably the character I’m least “meh” about.
Favorite L4D2 Campaign:
The Parish. So many different things in that campaign. Jet fighers bombing the city, the car alarm area, the bridge run. A pretty cool campaign overall. That campaign in particular also got some nostalgic value to me. For example, during the beta, I was allowed to play for more than 30 minutes. (The two first chapters of The Parish was the only thing that was available during that beta, so that’s one of the reasons that map always bring back happy memories).
Also, I want to note that I really like both games. But as similar as they might look on the surface, I can’t help but feel there’s such a huge difference between them, to the point where L4D2 just doesn’t quite feel like a L4D game. I personally felt that L4D was a lot more about the co-op and the mood. L4D2 kind of went a step back in that department I think, but instead it sorta made up for it with a strong focus on the zombie killing action itself.
It’s sorta like Alien and Aliens. The first movie had a focus on character and horror, where Aliens shifted its focus to the Aliens and the action (Same thing with L4D and L4D2( but with the infected instead of aliens of course)). Alien and Aliens are both really good movies IMHO, but I think Aliens isn’t an Alien movie the same way that L4D2 isn’t a L4D game.
I realize now that I just started rambling about L4D and L4D2 in general, using horrible Alien analogy. Forgive this rusty bot, I really need the sleeps.
As a last thing though: yay! My wish for a Left 4 Dead category was granted! Thanks @Shaners! Now we just need the L4D Emojis, hehe!
