But anyway it could be one or more of these reasons:
1: TC's parents/friends/whatever doesn't like the gore. 2: TC doesn't like the gore. 3: TC's computer doesn't like the gore. or 4: TC thinks he'll get the CS weapons by doing this. --- <Lord of the pizza> Nothing to see here, move along.
Why? Because I'm hoping turning off the gore will free up enough resources on my girlfriend's laptop that it will run the same as L4D1. She can play Left 4 Dead 1 alright, but Left 4 Dead 2 runs horribly.
