Which zombies game between the two do you think is better, and why?

Left 4 Dead

#3 Posted by firewrkninja (362 posts) - - Show Bio

Left 4 Dead because it is better.

#4 Posted by tensor (3512 posts) - - Show Bio

Left 4 dead 2

It's a matter of preference and both are totally different games.

L4D is a linear 1st person shooter game. 
Dead Island is more of a survival FPS RPG Adventure. Sorta similar to Far Cry or Fall Out. 
 
 
So the answer should differ depending on the type of genre the gamer is.

Dead Island is a far better zombie game. It's creepy and challenging. ITS PURE AWESOME SAUCE.

Dead Island is actually great but it is a RPG-like FPS which is pretty much like Dead Rising. And Left 4 Dead is like a CoD game with zombies but is actually more creepy and eerie.

I saw the review on dead island, it looks like one of those games I wouldn't even buy even if it was in a 5 Dollar bin.

I've played left for dead and it's okay.

Dead Island.

I think Left 4 Dead are for Call of Duty players who like working with a team and shooting at zombies. Its very straightforward and you cant really experiment and have fun with it.

On the other hand Dead Island is huge open world that you can explore it might not be the best zombie fps but it has a lot more things to such as exploring creating weapons and just having fun because you don't need missions to have fun in this game.

P.S. In Dead Island if you throw a weapon and try and drop it at the same time you can duplicate your weapon.(don't know if still works but try it)

All I know is people are cold-blooded a$$holes in Left 4 Dead online and won't hesitate to leave you high and dry if you're incapacitated.

Dead Island , more like a RPG and the skill trees work great if you use a mixed 4 person team. The women are also the powerhouse bad ass characters which is always cool

Dead Island because it has more content on disc then 4 maps you get to replay over and over again.

SO excited about this game, I am going to buy it tomorrow, have not had time with everything going on lately, I love the things I hearing about Dead Island...I need to go back and play Left 4 Dead as well

#22 Posted by TheCerealKillz (10266 posts) - - Show Bio

Left 4 Dead, on the PC though. You can download custom maps and play those, and all the replay value in that game is insane. 
 
 
Dead Island is still a good game though.

LOL! That was insane and hilarious. I would play just about any game that had that mod in it. FO3 please, lol.

I love both games but Dead Island beats both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 at all aspects.

The zombies are stronger and challenging, you can modify, create, and repair weapons, and buy and sell objects.

#25 Posted by Chosen1 (162 posts) - - Show Bio

Both awesome zombie games..... but I choose Dead Island.

#26 Posted by Swagger462 (354 posts) - - Show Bio

Dead Island is fun for running around and splattering things. The story has absolutely no cohesion at all and it fell victim to the same thing L4D did. Special Infected. The stupidest zombie related invention ever. EVER.

#27 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (7118 posts) - - Show Bio

Left 4 Dead owns Dead Island.

#28 Posted by GodOfMischief (616 posts) - - Show Bio

Left 4 Dead is much better, but both are great games in their own ways.
