When TF2 was released it had a lot bugs, correct but it offered lots of content (9 characters with different abilities, lot of tactics to try and test out) and above all you could get that all for 20 bucks.
Personally I thought the opposite. It was very polished (I didn't come across any bugs) but lacked content (only six maps at launch, only one CTF) - the updates were mainly to address balance, something that will always need addressing after launch.

L4D is available for 50$ on Steam and it offers only four small campaigns with limited replay value. People are just expected way more content for 50$
Indeed. My biggest criticism was that the price tag was very high for something with less replayability than TF2. Fortunately I picked it up for considerably cheaper than the Steam price. That's why it seems strange that things have been so quiet when it was a more expensive game, thereby one would assume more worth of support.

L4D needs at least another 4 campaigns to be able to justify it's 50$ price tag.
Not to justify it but to make it stand up to previous Valve offerings. It's also disappointing that versus mode is chronically unbalanced and nowhere near as much fun as I was hoping - picking your own spawn point for infected is pretty lame.

I love Left 4 Dead but it's lacking somewhat in replayability.
