I was one of the people most vocal about the L4D2 release here but it was unfounded and I don't mind admitting I was totally off base. It had 4 original campaigns, new game modes, new characters, some new infected and weapons. The only thing I wanted in that didn't make it until afterward was the ability to play maps from the first game. I didn't get a paid DLC vibe at all and I consider it a bargain at $60 or $6.

Well, I'd disagree fairly strongly. New characters are completely irrelevant, as your character doesn't matter in the game at all. But new game modes, new infected and new weapons (as well as more campaigns) were all what they promised they'd be delivering as DLC for the original L4D. Regardless of the "technical issues" that precluded that being done, making a new game with those features, and charging full price I still consider a pretty dick move.

For me, the only reason I picked it up was because it went on sale cheaply. Had it remained in the $40-$60 range, I would have considered it a rip-off.
