Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      This is awesome. L4D series is fun and great, but this FREE present edition makes it a no brainer. I've been texting everyone today just to log in to Steam and get it for free if they haven't already got it.

      Grab it now and ready yourself for L4D3!!

      I suppose that explains why Steam has fallen over.

          I find it hard to believe that many people don't already have it.

            Whenever the Valve franchise pack goes on sale, it's always in the top 10. I'm always amazed by that too.

        I just logged in to add it to my library. No need to download it if you're not going to play it soon.

      So this pretty much guarantees LFD2 hats, right?

      Now my younger brother, who plays this game incessantly, and nothing else barely, is griping because there are all these noobs jumping into the VS. multi-player mode who "don't know what they're doing."

      LOL...I just told him to be grateful for fresh blood and renewed investment into the community and quit griping. Geez.

        Tell him to learn DOTA so he'll know how it feels.

      Man, I JUST bought the L4D2 4-pack on sale a month ago. Thought I got a good price, but apparently it wasn't because it was MORE THAN ZERO DOLLARS.

        It was a good price at the time you bought it. All is good.
