probably because L4D2 is basically a direct copy of L4D with new items that could JUST as easily been released as a DLC or expansion for the original and patched in that way.

L4D costs as much as a full game while it adds less than a normal expansion does..

Why do people keep saying this, even after the game has come out?

I've said this before, I'll say it again.

It is NOT the same game, and there could NOT be a DLC patch.

You have:
A full flowing story.
New playable characters.
Doubled amount of SI.
Almost tripled weapon supply.
Introduction of melee (with it's associated weapons)
A better variety of maps.
New game dynamics.
All new and expanded voice work.
Two new directors (infinite replayability).
New music cues.
New UI.

Putting the new characters and infected in the first game would leave players saying, "What the ****, how does this fit, this seems completely different."

Also, putting the new directors (ability to randomly spawn different weapons depending on multiple factors) into the old maps (which are not designed for this) would create a host of bugs.

L4D also has a bug which makes it increasingly hard to add new content to the game without a complete overhaul.

You want to access a second game from the UI of the first game. Why not do this with all sequels?

Also, I love the people who say, "This game is completely different!" (in a good or bad way). Then they say, "They should just put the two games together!"

What the hell? Combining two different things is like putting Fallout with Oblivion. Sure, the premise is the same, and they play the same way, but they have very little in common.

While we're at it, let's just cram all games of all genres into one game. Now we'll have, "Generic FPS: Combat Style" and "RTS: Command the Army".

I may have gotten carried away there, but you can see what I mean. Left 4 Dead 2 is not Left 4 Dead 1. Left 4 Dead 2 has too many new things. Could all of the DLC for Fallout 3 been released as a new game? No, because it ADDS ON to the Misc. Quests. Left 4 Dead 2 has all the elements of a complete game, and none of the elements of DLC. Crash Course is DLC. L4D2 is a new game.

I have to agree with zeth

It's like saying: "why did they make 3 halos? Why not just put it all into one game!"
