Bill!

Zoey, obvious reasons of course.

#3 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I personally love Francis...but I really like the fact that they all seem different, even if it's in subtle ways. I absolutely love the demo!

Bill and Zoey for different reasons. Francis is my least favorite.

Francis a bit cookie-cutter?
#7 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

What's with all the Francis hate?...I like Louis the least, but he does seem to be that guy who gets in the way (judging from the first cinematic).

#8 Posted by Demilich (2599 posts) -

I'm usually Louis.

#9 Posted by trav3ler (168 posts) -

Louis, because it's fun making sure the black guy survives for once.

#10 Posted by PureRok (4235 posts) -

Zoey is my favorite.

#11 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Louis, because he's the normal dude that always dies first in Zombie movies.

#12 Posted by Arkthemaniac (6535 posts) -

Louis, because I find it funny the blue collar, upscale one is a black guy.

I'm not saying that there aren;t blue collar black guys out there, but they usually aren't in horror movies/games.
#13 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

Definitely Zoey, for obvious and not so obvious reasons.

:P ...I actually really like Louis now, but I can't stand Bill because he's always disobeying me! That little old bastard!

i like Bill and Louis.

#17 Posted by Death_Burnout (3792 posts) -

Dude, Bill all the way, Bill's just awesome! and i cant figure out why i love playing as him so much.

#18 Posted by Rockanomics (1150 posts) -

I love Zoey so much I have a hard time choosing whether I want to be her or be able to look at her.

Honestly her voice acting is sooo good. Her "omg, I'm really gonna die" line got me a little emotional.

#19 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

Am I seriously the only one here who likes Francis?

#23 Posted by miklebanks (2 posts) -

#24 Posted by ChromaticPanther (66 posts) -

Bill or Zoey all the way, Francis is pretty cool too and Louis is always bitching.

#25 Edited by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

Louis here, I love his stereo-typical african american cries for help. :)

"HELL NO"
#26 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

A few more choices and still no one else likes Francis...

#28 Posted by Robot_Vampire (49 posts) -

Louis is my favourite because he seems like the guy who hinders the group and is always the first to die in horror movies.

#29 Posted by albedos_shadow (1485 posts) -

I always go with Bill. He's just such a badass.

#30 Posted by bekern (563 posts) -

I play as Zoey but her stupid comments piss me off, so I like Louis the best. But Bill...... fuck that guy, he never helps me.

#31 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

Bill never helps me either...but you know who always helps? Francis! Where is the friggin' Francis love!?

#32 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

How about that Bill eh?

Louis is cool too!

Hey don't forget Zoey, she's pretty awesome.


Well that about wraps up the characters in Left 4 Dead.

#33 Posted by Sarnecki (690 posts) -

Zoey lacks a bit of personality for me...  I usually like Louis, or Bill.

Francis. He's got the best quotes.

When he answers the radio, "Attention Army! This is.. *cough* ..the cops!"

When the APC arrives in Blood Harvest, "I forgive you army! I love you guys!"

In Death Toll, "Attention boat owner! We are the cops! I command you to pick us up!"

At the church with the locked safehouse, "We're cops! Open up!" and then later "Man, I don't think that cop thing worked."

Francis is my guy because he's the most imposing, leader like character.  It helps when trying to coordinate your group.

Also, since he's fairly generic compared to the others regarding color palette and archetype, when not playing him I regularly shoot him.  The others stand out more which helps when avoiding friendly fire.

#37 Posted by Emilio (3380 posts) -

I love all of them, but Francis is super duper bad ass.

#38 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

Finally two people for Francis...now I am no longer the only Francis lover here, I can die in peace...being ripped to pieces by a hunter.

#39 Posted by Giuseppe (129 posts) -

Personally, I like Francis the best. I find him very funny. I never use Zoey. I only use Bill or Louis when I feel like I'm gonna need two shotgun people in the game.

#40 Posted by Shazam (474 posts) -

Zoey. Sisters are doin' it for themselves. ;)

But if she wasn't there, I'd definitely pick Francis, he's by the far the most quotable.

#41 Posted by Daz0608 (384 posts) -

Louis

#42 Posted by pause422 (6170 posts) -

Zoey and Louis I think are my favorite characters. Louis just because hes such a down to earth character, and has so much to say just by his expressions of how he gets absolutely terrified at times.(and for saying: Bill!) Zoey because I think shes just a great character, another big win for Valve(though I'm not surprised at all), plus I like to guarantee that she makes it out alive because the girl must survive if the human race is to continue!

#43 Posted by Hdfisise (137 posts) -

Louis is the best mainly because when he screams OH NO its hilarious :D

he's white collar buddy, If you noticed by the colour of his shirt. It's white not blue meaning he works in an office. My favorite Character would have to be Bill, before the game was released I was really looking forward to as homeless crackhead Louis.
#45 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

I am usually Bill. He is cool and I love how he just complains a lot about different things.

#46 Posted by mrmcinnis (3 posts) -

Bill, i like being the scrappy old guy.

#47 Posted by Optiow (1745 posts) -

I like Bill, he says awesome things.

#48 Posted by Osaladin (2514 posts) -

Bill, if Bill is taken, I go with Louis.
