Only suggestion is to re download the map you tried to play. Also did you play it in local or some dedicated server?

When I had that error, a game cache verification worked for me. I have no idea what would cause that other than messed up or out of date game files.

Does the developer console give a more detailed description of the error?

I have tried reinstalling and verifying with no luck, at this point I kind of give up. Thanks everyone

The only thing that comes to my mind is to delete the addons folder and the addoninfo (make a backup ;)) and try to see if it works, since you have reinstalled and verifying game cache I think that the game isn't the problem, meaby it could be Left 4 Dead 2 addon support? Did you installed it? That thing ruined my L4D2 for some reason :|
