Yesterday, I wrote a post tackling those who were bawling their eyes out over Left 4 Dead 2.

I think my favorite is the face that it's "too bright," which is not only nitpicking horsesh*t, but is completely wrong. Every smart person knows zombies are scarier during the day. The rest of the complains are also pretty weak. Are they seriously complaining about the "fiddle-based" music? Yes they are. The only complaint that holds water is the first one, and we still don't know how much further support Valve is giving L4D anyway.
