Valve Made Left 4 Dead 2 Because The First Game Was A Broken Mess

Left 4 Dead lead Chet Faliszek describes the original Left 4 Dead game as "such a broken thing that nobody wanted to touch it."

And then couldn't be arsed to make a third game.

If they can add a lot more stuff to a 2nd game in just 1 year why didn't they make a third game a few years later with tons of stuff extra? Because that shows they could've.

I know Source 2 was kind of broken and was a reason they cancelled L4D3 but it seems wasteful to just toss it away.

Don't know what Valve were thinking.. it's like nobody wanted to fix the issues to get going. They certainly aren't the Valve of 2004 that released fun games with pretty cutting edge graphics.

Valve is allergic to number 3 it seems. It would be easier for them to release a Left 4 Dead 2.5 enhanced version instead of releasing a game with "3" slapped on its title.

They stopped making games a long time ago. Steam brings in so much money that it's really not worth the effort. Nowadays, people only look for faults in games, and spend more time whining on Twitter/X than playing the game anyway. Valve says a big fat no-no.

Value is the Blockbuster of video games. They have no need to invest in deving a game, when they can make handfuls of cash renting them.

What are they talking about? Seemed pretty alright to me at launch it just wasn't supported the way Valve promised us

They should have just worked on a revamp / massive update to the game but they didn't they jumped straight to a sequel with brand new characters despite having some sort, if small, story about where the original survivors were heading.

I didn't care for the direction they took the sequel, the original games tone and atmosphere was missing in the second game and is still unmatched. Daytime levels, more whackiness, melee weapons where you could attack a Tank with a frying pan...just wasn't the same to be honest and the new survivors just didn't hold up the originals.

Here's my speculation. I think they did a sequel because they didn't want to update a game co-developed by Turtle Rock, they wanted the franchise to be known as a Valve game only and knew if they updated the first one Turtle Rocks name would still linger on it.

I want broken games like L4D all day long...

Well the first game was by far the best

Quake 4 - Launching the Xbox 360 FPS Addiction

Quake 4 arrived as an Xbox 360 launch title soon after its PC debut, and heralded an era in which the single-player FPS dominated.

DefenderOfDoom22d ago

For me, what launched the single player FPS campaign on consoles was Playstation DOOM which I bought during the launch window for the Playstation 1 back in 1995 which ended up being the best port of DOOM on consoles back in the 90s .

Jingsing2d ago

Still plays great today. Shoulder button strafe shooting is fun.

OtterX2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Oh man, that William's Doom on PS1 had the best music/ambience! Really sounded hellish and it still sounds amazing today. I always preferred it over the original Midi music from PC. Doom 64 was really good too for that era!

DefenderOfDoom22d ago

I hope Nightdive does a remaster of QUAKE 4 to be released on all current platforms .

OtterX2d ago

For sure. It was one of the 360 launch titles I picked up and enjoyed
it. But I really hope they do a Quake 3 Arena with crossplay option too. I recently went back and played on PC, and had a ton of fun. Would be nice to have servers officially reopened with a retail remaster! The Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 days are my fondest memories of online shooters.

shinoff21832d ago

There were definitely big fps games on console before this.

Profchaos2d ago

You could do far worse on the 360 back in the day it was a excellent port of a at the time fairly demanding PC game.

Life is Strange Achieved 20 Million Players

Today Don't Nod Entertainment announced that the adventure game Life is Strange has achieved a new player count milestone.

gold_drake5d ago

the og is so good

didnt rly like 2 and the new one.

cthulhucultist4d ago

I found all LiS games to be very good.

Especially the first and True Colors.

Before the storm was also amazing as it tied up the story with 1 in a great way and mae you invested with previously unknown character.

I think LiS 2 was the weakest in the series but still a very good game

Knightofelemia4d ago

The game is a good game I enjoyed the first game I double platinumed it on PS3 and PS4. And Life is Strange Before the Storm I also enjoyed if it was on PS3 I would have bought it again because I enjoyed it. Life is Strange 2 for some reason I just can't get into it. And the newer Life is Strange game I have yet to play it.

vTuro244d ago

This game was quite the experience. I had no idea it was this popular.

badz1494d ago

More than starfield? Must be a huge success. MS should buy these guys
