We've now been waiting for Left 4 Dead 3 for 10 long years

GR: "With how often Valve starts and cans projects, it's not unrealistic to think that fans might have to wait another decade before seeing Left 4 Dead 3 if it even ever occurs at all."

Valve can't count to three, remember?

I came here to say exactly this.

Dying light set the bar for Co op zombies games for me so I don’t really worry about left 4 dead anymore.

Looking forward to Dying Light 2.

KwietStorm_BLM1672d ago

Dying Light 2 looks really really good. Entirely different kind of game and experience though. Not about setting any bar.

CorndogBurglar1672d ago

I do agree that Dying Light is an amazing co-op zombie game and in the long run it does offer much more.

But L4D is a totally different experience and type of game. It's very hard to say you won't play one because you have the other.

Thunder_G0d_Bane1670d ago

True definitely agree @Corndog

himdeel1672d ago

I think they are smart not to make 3 or count past 2 if they cannot make it amazing. This is an example of a potential sequel that is already crushed by it's own hype. I honestly think everyone who would have been interested in this game still are but aren't holding their breath for it.

OnlyThoseOnTheFence1672d ago

Hey remember when nobody wanted 2? The first game was great but pretty bare bones. The second "game" should have just been DLC for the first one. Let's not do this all over again unless 3 contains all the content from the first two small games.

SephirothX211672d ago

Valve are the inverse of EA. They create great franchises and then just say "no that's enough!!! No more candy for you!"

winter_hill1671d ago

The fat bastard ate all the candy as well as someone else's.

Smokehouse1672d ago

The studio that made left 4 dead are making a l4d game right now. It’s not called l4d but that’s what it will be. That announcement was awhile ago so it shouldn’t be too much longer. Probably next gen with the crossplay.

Skuletor1672d ago

Yeah, it's called Back 4 Blood and is a spiritual successor. I haven't seen anything more than concept art yet though

Looking Back At 2008, An Unbelievably Incredible Year Of Video Game Releases

Huzaifa from eXputer: "2008 was home to the likes of Call of Duty: World at War, Dead Space, GTA 4, Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead, and many other hits, which is outright remarkable."

ChasterMies51d ago

Some of these low paid video game “news” writers weren’t born before 2007.

just_looken50d ago

Here here

Those that were around before 2000's i am sure are like me that think we entered a world of non readers or those that follow without question.

I can not wait to see fallout 3 a goty game even though it was about water with non content until you add the dlc/updates then you got the performance/crashing

CrimsonWing6951d ago

I don’t think anything can compare to 2023

lucasnooker51d ago

1998 - the best year in gaming! Metal gear solid, crash bandicoot 3, medievil, half life, ocarina of time, thief, tenchu, resident evil 2, Spyro, tomb raider 3, oddworld abes exodus, banjo kazooie.

It was a different breed of a gaming era. You’ll never understand what it was like back then. The aura of gaming, it was different!

I second this. Gaming was a lot more varied and fun than it is today. I'm 35 so getting on compared to some here but I got to see all the changes from NES up to now but I've never felt so disappointed in any generation than I have this current gen. I was expecting more from this generation rather than prettier versions of games that came before it. Game mechanics have become so refined that alot of games feel the same and has done for a while now.

Maybe it's time to have a break for a while. I love gaming but I don't feel I get much fun in the traditional sense out of it anymore.

CrimsonWing6951d ago (Edited 51d ago )

Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, Abe’s Exodus, and Ocarina of Time are the only things from that list that I liked.

Here’s the 2023 game releases that I personally liked… and big releases that I didn’t care for:

- Dead Space Remake
- Wo Long Dynatsy
- Resident Evil 4 Remake
- Diablo 4
- Fire Emblem Engage
- Hogwarts Legcay
- Street Fighter 6
- Hi-Fi Rush
- Like a Dragon: Ishin
- Octopath Traveler 2
- Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters
- Final Fanatsy XVI (actually ended up not liking this, but it was still a big deal release)
- Baldur’s Gate 3
- Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
- Lies of P
- Mortal Kombat 1
- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
- Starfield (Ended up hating this one, but big release)
- Super Mario Bros. Wonder
- Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (I’m an old-school Zelda fan, but didn’t really enjoy this game)
- Alan Wake 2

I mean, honestly I’ve never seen a year of major IP releases like that, ever.

Profchaos51d ago (Edited 51d ago )

Isn't it just a generational thing realistically.

I've been gaming since way back and I some of my favourite games go as far back as the late 80s for me each generation has a year or two of game changing releases one after another before an inevitable dry spell.

I kind of agree gaming had a different feel games hit different because we didn't have the internet nothing got spoiled and you really had to put in the effort to beat a puzzle which could set entire groups of people looking for a solution. But most importantly games were experimental and not as cookie cutter as today even basics like controls were not universal today r2 is shoot l2 is ads garunteed you can't deviate from that in a shooter back then it could of been square, R1 or R1 and circle nothing was standard.

But as time moves on a new generation picks up their controller they are going to be interested in different things that PS1 demo disc with the t Rex blew our primitive 16 bit brains back on launch but to kids today it's laughable.
The new gen of kids coming into to hobby seem to value different things to us there seems to be a huge focus on online play, streamers, gaming personalities, and social experiences, convience of digital downloads. To me I value none of that but that's ok like my parents not liking the band's I would listen to its just the natural cycle.

Gameseeker_Frampt51d ago

Just about every year in the 7th generation was great and something we most likely won't experience again.

2009 for example had Assassin's Creed 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age: Origins, Uncharted 2, Halo 3: ODST, Killzone 2, Borderlands, Bayonetta, and Demon's Souls to name a few.
