- Four-player, team-based mechanic
- Able to run and shoot simultaneously
- Ammunition is easily acquirable
- Takes place in a relatively wide and open city
- Linear path through the level
- Doesn't seem scary in general, so much as it seems action-oriented

If I had watched the video without knowing the name of the game I wouldn't have guessed that it was RE, ever.
Everything you just mentioned can be found in about every
game out there. Just because it has zombies doesnt make it anything like L4D. The "requirements" for it to resemble L4D you listed is quite shallow.
I mean "the ability to run and shoot simultaneously". What on earth is that and what does that have to do with anything? I can name TONS of games that have that. Is Uncharted a "dumbed down version" of Left 4 Dead?
Did L4D feature humans vs humans?
Did you have to do mission based objectives?
Each character have special abilities?
A plot story and cinematics?
Team Deathmatch as well?
How about cover mechanics?
Was L4D in 3rd person?
None of those? Oh.
Someone mentioned Team Fortress 2. Even that
sounds more closer to similarity than Left 4 Dead, and it doesn't even have zombies.Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 7/23/11 at 8:54pm
