From Diablo 3 to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, a small segment of fanatic gamers responds to seemingly any sequel with rage normally found in only the worst fanboys. Left 4 Dead 2's recent release was yet another surrounded by threats from gamers angry that developer Valve was releasing a sequel so quickly. After spending countless hours filling forums with post after post listing a litany of reasons why they weren't going to be providing Valve with their (parent's) "hard-earned money," they then went out and bought it. They appear to have a serious misunderstanding of what the word "boycott" means. Either that or these protesters are just full of sh!t. Check out the official boycott page for Left 4 Dead 2 to see this phenomena demonstrated further."
