I've only played my friend's copies a few times. Generally, No Mercy, the comic book made for The Sacrifice, and The Sacrifice, all suffice enough. Most of the other levels, imo, are forgettable. While the sequel focused more on action and special settings, it at least made the game play 10 times more interesting.

I usually have some trouble playing L4D2 on normal-aka-medium.

On L4D1, if I play it on Normal, I'm almost always a top ranker or near-top ranker. Maybe once I got 3rd place.

That tell you how much they amped up the challenge and gameplay?

Battlefield Bad Company 2: Multiplayer. SOOOO GOOD! Requires teamwork unlike Call of Duty and has great classes, maps, graphics and best of all, gameplay.

In my experience, almost any game benefits from strategy (I've seen it work on bloody Battlefront 2 for crying out loud).

If you've played both COD and BC2 you'll easily see that there is a huge difference in the way those games play online. I personally prefer BC2 because it is a bit slower more "intelligent" game, BC2: Vietnam IMO is great addon somewhere halfway between COD and BC2. Truth be told, COD reminded me more of Quake 3 (cluster-fuck) than any other Modern Warfare-themed game.
P.S. Have you watched E3 videos of successors of aforementioned games? Check them out, they're both in-game.
Modern Warfare 3 footage.
Battlefield 3 footage.

I won't comment it, but take a look, B3 live demo is jaw dropping, MW3 not so much.

I'm still looking into getting BF2142, presently. And I realize most games don't force strategy (I see that as a problem).

While L4D1 definitely has more special place in my heart than L4D2 the latter definitely beats first installment in just about everything, hell you even get old characters and NoMercy mission free (khm - NoMercy is IMO the best mission in whole franchise).

Well, I just finished L4D1.  The ending was - interesting.  I might get some multiplayer time in sooner or later, but first I'm going to play through L4D2.

Yeah, if there's a single player option, I always tend to play through that first to get a feel for the game.  After that, I usually start playing multiplayer.

...I understand that in most cases but still...

I also got to try the game in singleplayer. It's five times as shallow without someone there to play it with you.

However, if you unlock cheats and use console commands, and have an Xbox 360 controller that you can use on the PC, then you can unlock split-screen (you can only do it offline, however, as Valve never fully implimented it).

I've started to play TES4 Oblivion again, after hearing about TES5 Skyrim. Oblivion has to be my favorite game when it comes to running around, exploring, or just killing things.

And there aren't any characters with personalities to talk to.

I suggest this now, even though I still couldn't expunge the images from my mind -- skip every bit of cutscene or dialogue in Bayonetta.

They shouldn't have even been included.

You are playing the greatest FPS to date. It has AI that could beat Halo, Half-Life 2, and Jedi Knight AI, 1 v 3, without losing more than three soldiers.

Not to mention it's got a well sparsed narrative and the only downside to it is the surprising lack of enemy types (although the always changing tactical scenarios make it almost impossible to notice the similarity in appearance and function of enemies).

*turns to person sitting next to him* gotta be either the one liners or the robot women. That, or he enjoys B-movie style videogames. If so, I guess we aught to recommend the Conduit 2...

I'm referring more to the sequel's story more than anything else.

Someone showed me the ending...

It's...

Just...

Wow...

And yet, the acting seems at least better than SyFy channel's "original" movies.
