It would seem that the feelings of a given person rely soley on the individual.  Factors such as upbringing, experience, and environment do not apply beyond determing the character of a person.  That is even to a lesser extent.  A person takes these things in a shapes them as they see fit.  It is with this understanding that the only person that could, or I dare say, should be blamed for any misgiving is the original transgressor. It would seem that we as a collective fall into a lesser hive mind.  We react to stimuli like a herd of sheep.  A person is smart, people are slow, panicky, and disastrously stupid.  Oddly, through the actions and ideas of one, others may expand upon said original idea or action.  The evolution of technology is due only to individuals who realized that they could only rely on themselves.  Surely, a team followed, but it was a sole being that started the process. It is surreal that we fall into this hive mind, that people cannot recognize natural leadershi

Left 4 Dead

I buy my Xbox 360 games in two ways. The first is that I buy them for myself. Examples would be Fable 2, Armored Core: FA, and Dead Rising. Others I buy with the thought that I'm going to be playing them with the in laws on Sundays. Left 4 Dead is an example of the latter. I read the reviews, looked at the videos, and finally decided to invest in the Game of the Year Edition. When I buy a game with the in laws in mind, I look for a few things. One is local four player. The other is simplicity. Left 4 Dead does half of this. To get the bad out of the way, I was greatly disappointed that L4D does not support local four player. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why. There are only four characters to play as, and even when played local co op, the computer controls the other two characters. It would only make sense that it would lighten the load on the processing if you had a four man team of human players. So what good reason is there for not including local four player? Sim
