    Game most similar to Left 4 Dead?

    Basically trying to find a game that has some sort of survival in both single player and multiplayer. The first thing that comes to mind is Dead Space but are there anything else that are at least close to it?

    From what I've seen of Left 4 Dead, I would say Dead Island.

    Dead Island if you want a survival horror/Co-op experience.
    Dead Space if you want a great story and some suspenseful moments. (Ranked 4th on my Top 5 Franchise's.)
    Singularity if you want a cheap game, with a little thrill in the game.
    Bioshock if you want a creepy atmosphere. (Ranked 5th on my Top 5 Franchise's.)

    The most similar game to Left 4 Dead? Probably Left 4 Dead 2...



    From what I've seen, Dead Island looks closest but not quite the same. Nothing else comes to mind really.

    Other than Dead Island, I'd suggest Resident Evil 5.

    Other then Dead Island, I'd suggest Dead Rising... that game is pretty sweet, you create weapons and stuff... but the downside is that you actually have a time limit!

    Dead Rising is nothing like Left 4 Dead. It's a shitty arcade game in comparison and one of the worst games I've ever played (no offense, chalk vs cheese).

    There's no tension and no real threat to your survival...it's all about racking up a stupid amount of kills and is more like playing Grand Theft Auto to mow down pedestrians than Left 4 Dead.

    The premise of Dead Rising is slightly amusing, but the thrill wears off after a scant few minutes and you're left looking for the game underneath, but it's just not there.

    If walking around playing dress-ups, swinging guitars and throwing basketballs at brain-dead hordes of shufflers counts for survival horror, then yeah, this is exactly like Left 4 Dead.

    I advised you to just wait a few months and get Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. It's looking to be amazing.

    Dead Island is probably your best bet unless you get Left 4 Dead 2

    Payday: The Heist is eerily familiar, just no zombies.
    Dead Island is close to the co-op 'feel' of L4D, but the atmosphere of the game is completely different imo.
    Killing Floor (you can get it on Steam) is pretty as well, some would say it's a better game than L4D.

    Bioshock 1 for atmosphere, Bioshock 2 for survival + both got great stories... do I ever love them <3

    Bioshock 2 would be the closest, cause a big part of it is defending a point (little sister) against waves of enemies.

    Not sure whether it has that sort of stuff in MP - played it solely for single player experience (come on, it's fucking bioshock!)

    Killing Floor but I'm not sure if it was released on consoles.

    The closest comparison gameplay wise is definitely Payday: The Heist. Make no mistake about it.

    In terms of the multiplayer... Dead Space 2 is almost identical. Not sure how many people still play it though...

    I've heard PAYDAY: The Heist is very similar, but I suspect Left 4 Dead 2 would also be similar.

    payday is probably the closest you can get to the gameplay style.


    random cop swarms, required to interact with the level to pass through it, 4 player co-op.



    problem is these games don't have the godlike writing L4D has.
