    If you're not going to play them until they're released for OS X, you might as well wait. All of Valve's games have been free or had reduced prices when they were released for Mac, from what I recall (I could be wrong, anybody else remember for sure?).

    If I recall correctly, all of Valve's games that have been released for the Mac went on sale. So yes, I would also wait.

    Waiting would be a good idea.

    Also they're amazing games.

    I picked up L4D for £12 the other day but I will hang fire for L4D2 until they are ported.

    And yes, they are awesome.

    You might want to get L4D2 now, it's on sale for £6.80 for the next 24 hours.

    Or you could just not get it at all. It's the exact same game :D

    I wouldn't have picked up L4D2 if all my friends didn't move over to it.

    that argument can apply to any video game, thus its a logical fallacy. Besides everything is different. Weapons, characters, the ability melee, new enemies, new locations and levels. Come on!

    It's absolutely different! It's less tense, more action-based than the first game. It's more relentless, really gives the feeling that the infection has spread.
    I prefer the gameplay of 1 but the extra modes of 2.

    Valve is on a summer sale, and Left 4 Dead 2 is 66% off TODAY - and ONLY today. Since it was missing in my collection, I bought it for 10.20 Euros. Even if you still have to wait for the Mac version, it's a no-brainer to buy it today.
