    So, who else finds it extremely sad that this game is so unpopular on Facepunch these days that we literally had to wait for Garry to do his monthly thread wipe to get to a v2?

    To be honest, until a sequel is made I can't see the game's community increasing at all. It's very fun, but mainly with friends and playing the same campaigns can get old quickly.

    Hey, I was OP for V2 of the L4D thread. Don't make a megathread without asking next time.
    it's just a thread. (made two hours after the original closed)

    The problem with left 4 dead is its players. It takes me fing forever to get into a decent lobby. Every lobby I join is stacked, 4 survivors all on each others friends list. If not private profiles. I'd like valve to go out there and say private profiles make you look like a coward. It's really rare to find a private profile used for a good purpose. 99% it seems they either stack, hack, scam or troll. If I see a private profile in a lobby, I leave because it won't turn out well. The other thing I hate is how I'll join the team that the first three guys are on with fourth guy being random. When they go to start the game, they kick me and then they have their pubstomp team.

    The problem with L4D2 now is that Valve really seems to scraping the bottom of the barrel now. First porting all the L4D1 campaigns in an attempt to keep things fresh, making Cold Stream for the purpose of allowing the public to suggest ideas to be included within the campaign, hired an overrated mapper who completely threw that concept out of the window, and generally ended up with a bad campaign perpetually stuck in beta, Valve having to fix the mess said mapper left, with the only other notable update being the L4D1 ports.

    It kind of seems now that the only two options left is to either make a new, large update or just let the game die.

    If you're going to give it hats, make it somewhat fitting to the theme. I don't want it to go down TF2 route. Eg. Pyro is 'crazy and randum', lets give him silly hats like a traffic cone or a birdcage.

    I can't imagine the L4D survivors actaully wearing hats though; what would they wear?

    I don't know, what I meant was that I don't mind Valve adding in stuff like microtransactions if L4D actually would get some much needed attention

    Assuming we see a new Half-Life title before L4D3, I'd welcome a new sequel. Seeing how it would be at least three years from the last game, it shouldn't cause as much controversy as 2 did.

    Yeah? I'm sorry I wasn't waiting infront of my computer screen for V1 to be closed. Like I said, ask next time. Also, a half a page before V1 ended I even said I'm OP for V2. You need to read.

    Edited:

    Also you made an effortless copy and paste OP.
    What a stupid trivial thing to complain about

    I gave up on the standard gameplay long ago. Especially versus.

    although nowadays I'm having a blast playing lastmanonearth and 2man co-op.

    or rather, 2woman co-op

    Weirdly reminds me of something out of the movie Slither. Not quite Resident Evil silly, but still seems a bit too silly for L4D.

    To be honest, there's not much to go on when it comes to making hats for the Pyro. While all the other classes have distinct enough personalities, the only word I could best describe the Pyro with would be "Maniac", thus why there's not much of a theme going on with his stuff.


    I wonder how this guy would have played if he made it in the game. And yes, this was real concept art for L4D2.
    I'm guessing the rats would work as sort of a distraction by swarming over the player, dealing minimum damage, giving other Infected a chance to attack.

    I wish Valve would add unlockables to the game. For instance different Special Infected Skins or different gun skins for survivors. It would add something to the game and I think the community would actually create some skins and models for Valve to approve. Just lik TF2 but less silly and more fitting with the Left 4 Dead Theme.

    It would be interesting to see a L4D with a clearer story arch with characters other than the survivors. Like a prequel to L4D1. I'd also love an RPG environment where you made your own character's appearance, and then went around looking for supplies and places to hold out while doing tasks. I guess I'm describing Dead Island, but I enjoy L4D's gameplay a bit more.

    What I can think of is two different things for the current Left 4 Dead 2;

    - Create a new campaign / story that summarizes or goes over what happens to the second set of survivors. Considering the military is likely to shoot or kill any 'carriers', they might be in a serious situation that involves escape unless Valve just out-and-out decides they all got executed.

    - Open up the customization for the second (and possibly first) game, so that it's more easily moddable and that it isn't an utter, annoying pile of bullshit you have to work through to create new content yourself. If one could get the modding scene active again with things made easier to mod, it could help save the game a little at least.

    Problem is, I don't see any real ways of keeping the second game for going on much longer. With the emphasis on Versus and the weekly mutations being rather crummy, I think Valve didn't really think this one through.

    They should make a Left 4 Dead game, but, like, in soldiers' perspective.

    I made a boxart of it once, but it's long gone now and it had a helmet-like-distorted style with a hint of Adrian Shepard on the cover.

    I thought it looked pretty cool I called it "Right 2 Life".

    Like a double entendre.


    Make it hella in-depth in everything too. Like, a Dead Rising but in first person.
