Thoughts on L4D?

Post by Nephstex on Sat Feb 21, 2009 5:36 am

I enjoyed playing Left 4 Dead. Just a lot of it bugged the hell out of me like lack of cinematics. I mean the play testers complained that the cinematic thing would like ruin the game. There is a thing know as a "Skip button" in many other games. Also the endings were really really unrewarding just that wee flying/driving/sailing away sequence after all that?

But it is still a fun game to play with friends, but these are just my thoughts what about everyone else?

See, Valve had ALOT of potential with this game they just screwed it up by listening to the play testers TOO much. If i were play testing i would actually provide much better constructive criticism rather than say "Wrong wrong wrong wrong" to every little detail. I just wish for a more rewarding experience really with the whole game even though it is still really good game play wise. And when i get my subscription back i will be sure to add ya and go blast the infected with the auto shotty XD

That's the point. They wanted to drift as far away from RE as they could and they did and not only did they do that they made a great game in the process they just could have done so much more T_T

Indeed but it has so much more potential hence why the play testers will burn in the fiery pits of hell cheers

So what would you have done to make it better?

I would have added more cutscenes and added more things Francis hates. Also better ending sequence and a more selection of guns

Well what did they hold back it seems pretty complete and working to me, a few balancing issues but thats to be expected in a new game with advancing tactics, so explain to me what is missing.

I enjoy it but with out friends to play with it gets tedious fast. Just needs new campaigns!!! And maybe a two 2man team of survivors competeing head on to kill most zombies by end of campaign....if that makes sense Razz Not vs mode where its survivors against infected -.-

Lol alright in order

The director AI is incredibly repetitive plus the change of music whenever a special infected appears is a huge give away. Sure it makes the game sound pretty but it doesnt help with the element of surprise. The witch is boring dull and easily avoidable. Now if she was walking around crying THAT would be a challenge. They could have also threw in a sort of "Race" thing where two seperate teams of survivors see who can reach the safe house before the other thus leaving 4 to die living up to its name XD. Now for Tiger yes it does need more campaigns and a much more rewarding end sequence but again the game testers thought that having any more character interaction/backstory would make the game pointless.

And lastly Stardust. Again the play testers left out a few creatures. One was an infected dog which would act like the hunter and another was a screecher which would do the same thing as a boomer but not vomit on you. But game testers complained it was too hard (Pussies). As for the boss fights. In reality you wouldnt really wanna go against a huge boss if you wanted to survive? The game is about surviving which is running and shooting and team work.

Does anyone else have any suggestions? I am especially curious as to what kinds of monsters you would have in it XD

P.S wow my longest post ever so far go me XD

But then it turns it from a surviving game to a shooter which really defeats the purpose

Exactly that but too much variety can ruin a game hopefully some new updates and expansions should fix a few things Very Happy

Played the demo the first time and felt a little dare I say it underwhelmed. Second play through with different peeps and the experience was a lot better.

Its a game I want to buy to play with you guys.
