Left 4 Dead has great atmosphere and tension but ultimately it is an FPS all about managing ammo and an arsenal of guns.

For sure Dead Island is dumb, lacking the overall polish of L4D, but it's all the more fun for it, the same way that the B-movies of Romero have a special place in the hearts of horror fans in a way that something more sophisticated like 28 Days Later never could.

Course, I got Borderlands 2 and L4D2 to keep me distracted from my rage.

Currently playing Diablo 3. Started Civ 5 and purchased Empire: Total War. Can't wait for FFXIV to come out along with Diablo 3 on PS3.

Thanks for the info! I was really hoping for split screen coop, but according to this Cooptimus Link- no.
