Left 4 Dead, by the Numbers

The Left 4 Dead blog writes:

"Valve has always seen the value in gathering real-world gameplay data and using it to improve our products. Now we're hoping you'll find it as useful as we do. With the creation of the L4D stats page, our customers will now be able to see a wide variety of gameplay data across all of Left 4 Dead's various game modes.

Use the stats page to track your performance; see which aspects of your gameplay are improving over time, which are your go-to weapons, and how often you use various characters and features." (Left 4 Dead, PC)

Whatever, this game's way too overrated. Seriously.

Yet you find the time to leave a comment for it. Wonder why that is that somthing that is of no interest some how gets you here to comment on it. How hard is it to simply let go.

I just think it's fun and easy to get into especially for these hardcore shooter fans that fall for anything on the xbox360.
But I played the game and it was fun, I would give it around an 85/100 or probably a bit more.

More of a PC game. It doesn't have the same feel for Xbox360.

Little?

Er, it's a Valve title. It was a huge release.
bobdog626  +   1997d ago
If it''s so little
It's out sold Killzone2 . check vgchartz.com and see for yourself.

Is this game worth buying.
Spike47  +   1997d ago
Yeah, he also forgot that Left 4 dead is multiplatform, it was also released on the PC
Either way, the first comment I think was trying to imply that it was a hit that came out of nowhere because nobody expected it, he wasn't trying to belittle it.

don't be so paranoid.

What's that telling you
such a small shooter ,such a small game but yet it made more than Sony's Best Shooter .Cry me a River .
bobdog626  +   1997d ago
don't get me wrong
To me L4D is avg at best but it was a lot of fun.Valve should make this for the PS3 because they have all to gain and nothing to lose.
Spike47  +   1997d ago
bobdog, I would like to see where you get your numbers from
either way, Left 4 Dead should sell more since it is multiplatform, and as for your comparison of sales between Killzone 2 and Left 4 Dead, I think quality matters more to a gamer don't you think? In that case, you should know which is better, unless you are in denial or you have a different opinion.(a biased one)
SpoonyRedMage  +   1997d ago
Well Valve said it's sold 3 million I think excluding Steam sales(which there will be a lot of).

By the way different doesn't mean biased and the majority of people who say stuff like "KZ2 is the best FPS ever!" are biased.

Left 4 Dead is good but it could be a lot better.

I have KZ2 and L4D for PC, and I genuinely think L4D is better. Is that so hard to believe? Now fanboys will either brand me a liar or just plain wrong. KZ2 is great, but it didn't do anything innovative or new for me. Graphics are spectacular though. L4D on the other hand is the best co-op experience in gaming, and is ridiculous amounts of fun at lan parties with 3 friends.
