I can only comment on Left 4 Dead and Dead rising as I've yet to play RE5 due to no PC release...


I prefer Left 4 Dead dude to the multiplayer aspect.

I played the hell out of Dead Rising, but when it comes down to it, it is quite repetitive and sometimes frustrating. It is a nice free-roam game with tons to do, lots of different weapons (basically anything) and tons of different endings. It also takes quite a while to finish, especially if you're an achievement collector.

As for Left 4 Dead, it's fun with friends, and is a good game to pick up and play for an hour or so. Of course, you can always play longer, but it's more fun within the first hours you play. Left 4 Dead offers a short (yet challenging, especially on expert) campaign that can be played alone, or with friends. Both have their pros and cons and aren't really comparable with the exception of the zombies.

however, Left 4 Dead gets my vote as i love playing with friends. :)

I vote L4D. Dead rising became really boring really fast. I have always hated the controls in Resident Evil. I mean, come on, its 2009. What is up with not being able to strafe/shoot at the same time. L4D has several fun game modes & the graphics look great.

I voted for Left 4 Dead as well. For the reasons stated by Confusingkid, Left 4 Dead is just a really fun multi-player zombie shoot 'em up. I have not, however, played Dead Rising, so I can't comment there. RE5, on the other hand, is interesting on the first play through, if only to see the story line played out. Otherwise, it is essentially an RE4 clone on the 360 with Co-Op gameplay. The Co-Op adds a new element to the game, and can be quite entertaining when played in the Mercenaries Mode. But, overall, RE5 has little replay value and still feels very static by comparison to L4D or other zombie oriented games as you still can't move and shoot at the same time in RE5. Why they never improved this aspect of the game is beyond me and makes the game move at a markedly slower pace to the point of being almost obstinate at times.

Dead Rising because it's closer to a sandbox Zombie RPG than any other game. I enjoyed Left 4 Dead, but it didn't feel as intense as Dead Rising, and honestly it felt more like watching an Action movie than playing a Horror game. I never played Resident Evil 5 other than the demo, and sure it was fun but nothing in comparison to the other two.

Left 4 dead wooooot! It is purely just killing zombies (or the survivors) and being made by valve I find it perfect for multiplayer
