LMAO

On topic: Good for Valve. They make and distribute a quality game and you know that there will be free DLC. It makes me happy that a developer makes a profit while serving the community with good games IMO.

yeppers, i bought me a copy of l4d this weekend.
and i conviced 2 friends to do the same.

i think 30 bucks is a good price for a computer game.
if all my games came at 30 bucks, i would buy them all.

Honestly I don't even know why I bought Left4Dead when it was fully price.

I really don't know what Valve is thinking trying to charge more than the freaking Orange Box for a game with 4 levels.

Left 4 Dead should have been $30 at the VERY most. I hope this was a big slap in the face for Valve.

These guys bring out some the best PC games ever. I dont mind spending that 50$ to play a valve game once a year. But it is definitely good if the prices drop to around 30$.
