Actually, my sis and I are pretty equally matched in L4D skill. She's really really good... And she's a collector. She loves to collect those emblems like you wouldn't believe! Lol. I have XBL, but I just don't really worry much about it because I don't really need it for anything. My dad fixed it up for me last Christmas and I don't think he minds. I like all Zombies, but the Infected are my favorite because they are really cool. They aren't slow and they are dangerous. They make for some DAMN good movies, too.
I think both of them had their many ups and downs. My sis and I always play offline co-op because we're not really huge fans of playing together online. I would rather play online by myself for some reason. I can get too competitive with my sister and we'll get into a huge argument sometimes, lol. And really? L4D wasn't my first Zombie game ever, but it was my first encounter with the Infected kind of Zombies, which are my favorite. And in L4D2 I love Ellis and Nick, and L4D1 I love everyone but Louis. Louis acts really stupid.
Nope, no melee weapons, but that doesn't take away from the game though, don't be misled. There are a few less Zombies too. Maybe you would like L4D2 better because it was your first one and you're used to it. L4D1 was my first game, and I definitely favor it over L4D2. But it's no biggie, they're both really good. I just hate Louis and Rochelle.
I really find it better than the second, although my sister and I started playing the second game more and we actually like it quite a bit. But we never have as much fun with the second one as the first. The first one just has a better team and everything is set at night. It's just darker. Nicer. There are no melee weapons though, that's the only bad thing. But it's still fun, you hardly notice they're gone.
I would like to get more Zombie games for Christmas, but I asked for too much Bleach. XD
Oh. I think it's better than the second in a lot of ways, but still. Both of them are really amazing. I got the first one late last year and then the new one early this year I do believe. I find myself playing the first one a bit more.
