Like alot of gamers i when i saw the resident evil 5 trailer when it first wa sunvieled i think a year ago i was wowed like many others and was really anticipating the crazy new african infected. also, when i saw the left 4 dead trailer i was intrigued but not as much....ive been watching alot of this e3 coverage and i was again wowed by the resident evil 5 trailer but when i saw the walkthrough i was put off...but when i saw left 4 dead i immediately wanted to start playing the game...so my poll is a 2 parter based on these 2 zombie genre games.

first after watching both walkthroughs(watching one of each part is enough its ok if you dont watch the whole thing of both). which game do you feel has the better zombie gameplay. base this decision on what you have seen from the walkthrough compared to the "perceived" gameplay first displayed in their respective trailers.

and second, do you feel that many developers are purposefully hyping their games(not the media's involvement, ie. GTA4) in their opening trailers and then delivering subpar product in gameplay has become a norm as of late or has been that way for awhile now?

i thought that left 4 deads gameplay is exactly what re5 promised and it looks fun and chaotic...resident evil 5's monsters shuffle like fools from re2

Dev hype in trailers is nothing new.... It's a advert for the game and its sole purpose is to attract people.

Left 4 Dead will kick ass. The gameplay looks neat. :)
Edit: the only thing I dislike about L4D is that you can see your team members through walls when you're humans. :(
Edit again: http://www.jeuxvideo.tv/video/left-4-dead.html <--- Looks freakin' pwnage.

Resident Evil is more of a survival horror. Left 4 Dead is just kickass zombie action. I'll probably buy L4D for the PC. Dunno what I'll do with RE5.

im sorry maybe my point was lost wat ive been trying to show is that the crazed zombies that the trailers for re5 made oyu expect to play against were slow shuffling idiots who litereally gave you time to move out of te way of their attack(see chainsaw man). the zombies that were shown in left4dead are crazed, actually run at the character, swing their weapons, seek ways to gain access to where you are...and hunt you down on sight...exactly what we expected from re5 from what the trailer showed....im gonna be bold and say re5 is a complete joke in terms of the zombie against human gameplay...the only way you should die to a zombie in that game is if they swarm you cause they are SOOOO SLOW and STUPID...i mean im sorry but while everyone is going gaga over this game around me i watch the gameplay and i say to myself "god are we really that dumb as gamers that we cant get over the fact that its a new resident evil and realize this is the dumbest ai theyve ever put out"...left 4 deads zombies are gonna keep you on your toes and always looking...THATS the kind of zombie experience and thats what re5 alleged in its trailers...thats my point

pls comment

if its in the way that its too much to read, please help out our countries' terrible literacy score and just read the 15 or so lines lol

Straying completely off-topic,now hedging bets on how long Aragoni's sig/Forumfall non-suspended or banned status lasts.

I say the sig is gone by tomorrow evening. :p
