Yep, pretty much what it says in the title there...

Is the L4D / L4D2 experience best on 360 or on PC? I ask because I am purchasing a new gaming PC relatively soon... and I own a 360...

Im really in the dark folks... Which has the best controls? Which has the best online play? Which is the best Value For Money? Is the ability to mod on the PC really enough to justify buying the PC version over the 360? Is the online play any good on XboX LIVE? what are your thoughts folks?

:cya:

Be debate over this but I would say the PC has better controls for any FPS.

I would say the PC.

PC

I would say no to this really but if you get tired of the campaigns in the game at any point then the mods are really interesting.

PC. I find a PC beats a console any day in terms of controls in all genres.

dinosaurJR;5170593 Which has the best online play? [/QUOTE]

360 is apparently really laggy. Plus Steam is a far better community system than LIVE.

dinosaurJR;5170593 Which is the best Value For Money?

PC obviously. Costs about 3/4 of the 360 version.

As Tanith said, if helps with replay value.

[QUOTE=dinosaurJR;5170593] Is the online play any good on XboX LIVE?

As I said, laggy.

Also, PC will almost certainly get free DLC, 30 won't. PC will get regular updates, 360 won't. Graphics are better on PC. Also, if you get a good enough PC and TV, you can go 3D with the PC version!

Yep, pretty much. The Xbox version costs $10 more, and Microsoft makes you pay for the same content updates that Valve releases on the PC version for free.

Yes.

I've own the PC version and have played the 360 version in disgust. :r

Thanks for the quick non bullshit answers guys! +rep to those above me!

Next question... which is best? i.e. which should I buy - when I purchase my new gaming laptop, L4D or L4D2? Ive read the reviews here, and Ive heard good and bad things about the sequel... and the original is still new enough to be relevant... also there is more modded content for L4D, but is it any good?

Cheers folks!

dinosaurJR;5171385which is best

That's (in general) a very hard question to answer, and quite a subjective one. I personally would pick L4D2 any day. The improvements to the gore system and the addition of the melee weapons make it, for me, so much better. But a lot of people find the online system more buggy. I had a hell of a time trying to get into a game with some friends yesterday. Other people said that happens reguarly, but it'd never happened to me before. Unfortunately, for some reason, neither game demo seems to exist anymore.

About the demo - I know what you mean - I cant find it anywhere... Steam lists it, but the download is nowhere to be seen...

I would get Left 4 Dead 2 unless you're on a serious budget.
