A bunch of Left 4 Dead gamers have gotten so incensed by the announcement of Left 4 Dead 2 that they’ve taken to the web, creating a Steam group with the express purpose of boycotting the game. They’re mad as hell that the game is coming out so soon instead of Valve just updating the original game.
Every time something like this happens, I’m amazed at the sense of entitlement that gamers have.
Know what? Valve doesn’t owe you anything. Sure, Team Fortress 2 has had years of amazing, free support, but how can you sit there and legitimately complain about the support for Left 4 Dead? How can you bitch about spending 50-60 bucks on something that you’ve been playing for 6 months straight, with free DLC already released and more on the way? An incredible, addicting game that, by the way, will still be fun to play even after the sequel is out?
I can understand being a bit upset with Valve for pumping a sequel out so soon, but is this the right response for a company that’s been so good to its fans? Besides, it’s impossible not to see the improvements to the game already and not be excited, especially if you’re a fan of the game.
Yet there are already 6,000 people in that Steam group, all bitching about their “cause”. Their funniest complaint? “The fiddle-based horde music is extremely disliked, though the differently orchestrated music is otherwise welcome.”
Know what? Eat a bullet. There are so many better things you could be getting riled up about, so many better “causes” you could be fighting. And let’s face it- you’re still going to buy the game and love it. That’s just the way things are.
