Alright guys, I'm having a major delema which is making my brain asplode. In a few hours I can either get Left 4 Dead 2 for $35 at Best Buy, or go to Gamestop and trade in 2 games and get CoD:MW2 for the same price. Which one is more worth my money, in terms of replay value? I want the game that won't feel repetitive after a while, but one that I can also have fun playing by myself. L4D2 looks really fun, but I've never played a L4D game before and it seems like if I'm don't have any friends on xbox live that it won't be as fun.

TBH, L4D sucked, and I don't expect much more from a game on the same engine. L4D had no relevant storyline, and is downright horrible when playing without friends. The only fun that I had was with a friend whilst putting the characters in sexually suggestive positions, then making them say "yeah!" Graphics are horrible, don't expect that to change (same engine). I don't really know what gameplay has changed, but I've only heard of 2 new zombie-types, and heard nothing else.

MW2 is an excellent game. In general, I despise playing campaign in any game; however, MW2s campaign was engaging and very epic. The online maps are very fun, the multiplayer game is HUGE with tons and tons of unlockables. Spec Ops is pretty 'meh,' not that fun, but mildly entertaining.

L4D on console is a silly idea.

Get MW2. Has a big community, will be supported for a while and your probably used to being fed garbage anyway.

MW2 is great, I play it every day. I cancelled my preorder on L4D2 after I played the demo. Love the first one, hated the second one.

EDIT: Hey, 1000 posts, yeah.

I've been really liking MW2 on the PS3. The campaign is short but sweet, the Spec Ops are ridiculously intense/fun with friends, and the online mode is great. MW2 gets my vote ^^

Don't get MW2 if you plan on mostly playing singleplayer, the campaign is like four hours give or take.

EDIT: If you haven't tried Borderlands, it's pretty addictive as long as you don't care about plot or characterization.

My friend who played both the demo and the release game said that the demo wasn't as good as the actual game. And from what she's been saying makes me wonder why they didn't put out a better demo. Anyway, regardless on how good the demo represented the full game, I still like the 2nd game better then the original. So what part of the L4D2 demo didn't you like?

I'm not going to be playing mainly single player, I will be playing mostly multiplayer but there will be times where I am bored and will want something to play by myself.
