I thought i might as well give my thoughts on the L4D demo, instead of say to myself, "i'll do it later"
But i'll keep this as short and sweet as i possibly can because for the people who really know me, i never shut up, so here it goes...
You see what i did there? anyway, popular internet phrases aside, i fucking love Left 4 Dead, and not that i thought i wouldnt be impressed, because i really liked the concept of the game years back, i remember when the characters, 2 in particular, looked really different, and my memory doesnt serve me well here, but i remember them looking even more different, i could be wrong.
The thing i love it the most? i've never felt more convinced by Zombies in a video game, motion capture goes hell of a long way for crossing the uncanny valley, it feels almost real, and with the, somewhat annoyingly termed "AI Director" changing the game around each time you play, its extremely addictive, can't count how many times i've played the demo...on the PC
Im still kinda a PC fanboy jerk, so, forgive me, but ever since my new powerhouse of a PC i've gone back to PC gaming, my old PC sucked so hard, following the PC bandwagon was difficult.
Plus, call me crazy, but i've stuck to playing it on singleplayer...reason being is because i like to go at it at my own pace, with other random dudes i imagine it would ruin the pacing, plus you never know what nobheads you'll meet, Unless they are my buds...i dont have any of those so im kinda screwed. Then again, i've never liked multiplayer unless its Counter Strike...hmmm, see the contradictory connection?
SO! overall i love it, its not perfect, but i love it, and the best part, it doesnt "scare" me like survival horror games might, its nice to have a horror first person shooter that doesnt quite play like a typical horror game, plus i love me some zombie apocalypse, i know one Rich Gallup probably wouldn't feel the same way.
Damn, that was not short and sweet....if you've made it this far...Good Job!!!! have some complimentary Will Smith.
