When Valve announced Left 4 Dead 2 – amazingly – not everyone was happy. There was one group of fans who thought that it was “too soon”. They were still playing Left 4 Dead and didn’t fancy the online gamers being split between the two titles. They wanted more additions to Left 4 Dead.
Whereas I can understand their frustration, I think they were totally wrong for trying to organise a boycott. Valve can hardly support Left 4 Dead if it can’t release new titles on a commerical schedule. This is a great time to be releasing zombie games. Left 4 Dead has a huge fan base and lots of people are going to scoop up Left 4 Dead 2.
I don’t play the game on the PC myself but I was pleased when a friend pointed out the boycott (which is now over) graffiti on some of the PC mods… and the counter graffiti.
