Most interesting game in 2008? ~Left 4 Dead~

Well it's being made by the same devlopers that made The Orange Box, and Hal Life games...their called Valve....Now there is a trailer for it on The Orange Box game at the title screen...if you leave it there for a lil bit a trailer of Left 4 Dead will be on it....

Anyway this game sounds like it's gonna be great! It's online...gonna be like Resident Evil Outbreak but really nothin like how crappy Resident Evil Outbreak was....the creators said they were inspired by 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later....for this game....

just google Left 4 dead it's gonna be great!

I'm waiting to play it before I cast an opinion, but Valve generally puts out a decent product.

It's Valve so it'll probably be great considering their near 100% track record of 'awesome'.

Please Thrik, Orange Box is terrible. And I'm not just saying that because you've pwned me on TF2 while probably not even realizing it.

Terrible? Terrible? What are you, some kind of craziness?

Well, I couldn't disagree more with that opinion. I also have these guys backing me up so clearly the Orange Box is in fact awesome.

Oh man, I'm waaaaaaaay behind. I kind of gave up on Half Life 2, but only because I got totally sick of Steam. Maybe only having a 56k modem when I bought the game might of had something to do with it =/

I think left for the dead would have been a more apt title, twisting the adage a bit to support the thinking of zombie thoughts.

I think it's meant to have a double meaning.

The double meaning is more apparent if the title is modified.

Well no, because "left for dead" is quite a common phrase and that's why they used it. The clever part is that in the context of the game it also has a second meaning, even though people who don't know anything about the game might not get it.

If the title were modified it'd be too obvious and lose its cleverness. It's not intended to be obvious.

Yeah, I see your point, but I had to defend myself to a certain degree, even if I wasn't quite believing what I was saying. Shouldn't I?

@Halo: u not get ref either

@itchy: How revolting, charming, perverse and... oddly arousing, simultaneously.

I wish Davinq would let me list him as a reference. I'd get that job in no time.

Would you mind saying that I'm a loyal hard-worker and a team-player?

Nah, that's fine. I need something that'll make me stick out from the other applicants. And Psychochaos, I was doing a poor job of being sarcastic, c'mon now.
