That's kinda pointless.
The article is right on questioning, "Did a large number of people buy, what is basically a multiplayer game, without the ability to play it as intended?"

Why would you buy Left 4 Dead 2 if you didn't already have XBL Gold?

Agreed, I thought this was Valve's Free Weekend plays on Steam because they allow you to download the client and take it online for those two days. If you bought L4D2 for 360: chances are, you already had an intention of playing it online.

This game has to be played online to get the most out of it. I leant it to a friend that only plays single player and he handed it back the next day even though I told him the score. Online this game rocks and is a must play for anyone. The way it forces you to look out for the other three people on your team and the sense of accomplishment it gives you is amazing.

I betcha this will reach more than 200° soon. Somebody needs to put a leash on this stupid site.

Why do I have two disagrees for what I said. This game must be played online, how can you disagree with that especially without giving a reason. Grow some balls and tell me why.

only @ n4g lol

its a great game i play it on the PC. The versus mode is the real game ;-)

With the PC version having dedicated servers it gets even better. setting aside the other advantages.

You need to pay to play this game? No Offline? No Split Screen?

There's offline and splitscreen, but that's not what Left 4 Dead was made for.

Do lots of people play this on Xbox Live?
I heard not many people played TF2 on Xbox Live compared to PC. What about Left 4 Dead 2, and even back last year L4D?
