The elusive number 3

Rely on Horror: "Good things come in 3s, Valve." (Half Life 3, Left 4 Dead 2, Left 4 Dead 3, PC, PS3, Team Fortress 3, Valve, Xbox 360)

I'd like to see left4dead 3 but I've been waiting longer for half life 3 and l4d2 and l4d1 still do a great job of scratching that itch. By the time you consider maps and custom content then you've got games with serious longevity. Unless valve comitted to something entirely new there's simply no need.

IMO valve succeed in taking sequels in totally new directions. L4d3 should consider being really out there. Taking the spirit of left4dead and taking it somewhere new. Try larger battles, more extreme director control, more fear, different modes. I'm talking about a seriously big gap because, like I said before, l4d1 and 2 still scratch the itch pretty damn well.

But really I think left4dead needs time. Time will pass and l4d and l4d2 will grow really outdated. With time new technologies will open extreme new gameplay designs and that, infused with better graphics, would give you a solid reason to invest the time into making the game. Between here and then however valve may want to do something about the fact their silent approach to game development has stopped being cute. What with it being a fucking century since we've heard anything about half life. Meanwhile Gabe Newell has increasingly stopped looking like a chubby harmless nerd and more like a hairy meatball of frustrating apathy.

The rumor is that L4D3 will introduce two more zombie types and also have the AI director create different paths in each level. So the maps won't always be the same. Sometimes a car might explode and crumble a wall to block a path, sometimes it won't.

That's the rumor at least. Sounds like a good direction to take it in my opinion. It would be amazing for Versus mode.

I would say that's the Gold Box since that would be one hell of a deal for 10 games that are top quality.

What about Portal 3?

Heck, I wouldn't even mind 'em tossing out new IPs.

Distinguish themselves from Blizzard with their little holy trinity.
