    Vote away. Retail = boxed copy. I'm curious about how many sales there were though steam compared to retail. Obviously there will be a significant selection bias here but still.

    PC-Retail. I like owning the box even though Valve doesn't put as much detail and stuff in it as they did back in the day.

    I'm glad that I can take part in one of your exciting polls again.

    I didn't buy it.

    Once upon a moon I was looking forward to L4D, gave Valve the benefit of the doubt and obtained a US retail copy of L4D with the intention of playing it together with my fiancée, but -- to my surprise -- L4D turned out to be the first game developed by Valve that I didn't enjoy. Every once in a blue moon I fire it up again (my total playing time according to Steam's gameplay stats is a mere three hours and I obtained it shortly after its release), possibly in an attempt to justify the purchase, but it just doesn't want to be loved.

    Long story short, since I didn't enjoy L4D and L4D2 seems to retain the core gameplay of the predecessor, I'm not that interested in playing it.

    Not bought it yet, though I'm still considering... First I'll have to update my 3d-card though, since I've found out that L4D1 doesn't look anywhere near what's possible. And I do not have enough money at the moment...

    Also, I'm starting to put waaay too much time in both L4D and TF2... which is starting to take its toll on my studying etc...

    I didn't buy this game. I got it for free for no reason from someone I barely know (Sliver). Doesn't make it less awesome.

    I technically did not buy the game as I got it for free from a bro when he bought his 4 pack.

    PC-retail, as it is nearly $15 cheaper than PC-steam.

    Steam. Unless I see something of a retail bargain I'll generally Steam it these days.

    Chalk me up for sucking of the cock. I bought the game. So I guess it's 15 people now.

    PC-Steam. I wanted in on an early demo, which turned out to be not as early as advertised.

    I didn't. I have to beat all of my games first. I might buy one if I feel want.
