Valve are so lazy that the team that made left 4 dead just left valve and created a new game. We could have had l4d3 but hey let's release more community made skins and dead game artifact.

It's not really the same team that made L4D and L4D2 was done mostly by Valve afaik. And looking at B4B, it probably won't be as good as L4D.

It might not but the devs wanted to make a new game and valve probably didn't. Just proves further how lazy valve are

Same studio doesn't have to have same devs as they did 10 years ago

The team that's making B4B is the team who originally came up with the idea for L4D and sold it to Valve. Valve then made the games.

Well l4d2 was released in 2009, they don't care about making new games as they are stacked with money and this is sad. They tried making artifact and failed miserably

But then came Alyx that is a VR masterpiece. And a masterpiece in general just like the rest of their games (except Artifact of course). Valve may not release the yearly CoD but when they do its generally a great fucking game.

That doesn't mean laziness tho? There can be a lot of several reason why they didn't want another entry to it

They don't want to make any games, they tried making artifact it failed miserable. Cs brought so much success and they couldn't use success to ride on it and make game better and hire more devs and etc.

V2 isn't bad, but the devs really failed on their promises. It needed way more content to roll out, and it all ended up being paid, recycled garbage. But the underlying gameplay was objectively fun.

You're correct. My point here was the gameplay.

who needs L4D3 when L4D2 is still to this the best coop zombie shooter out there and can modded to hell which gives new experience everytime you launch it ?

Who gives a shit about devs, lmao. Especially for these thrashers who made Evolve which was dead from the first day cause they were too much greedy and kept on pushing microtransactions, still the same thing they are aiming to do with B4B while it isn't even out yet and getting hyped because they are so called devs of L4D. It's nothing new, nothing to be impressed about, same recycled formula with a reskin.
2021-08-06 00:45
L4D2 is such a fucking travesty though. It completely removed the things that made L4D so interesting, and mostly just piggy backed off L4D's popularity (but also took all the resources that could've gone towards the first game's growth). Granted, it does have tons of variation, like you said, but it's a thematically different game and B4B is much closer to what I'd imagine the original devs would've made into L4D2.

Yep good take
2021-08-06 00:28
I disagree, completely. L4D2 improved over the things that L4D had while retaining the core gameplay and made it even more better, not a "thematically different" game at all, lmao. B4B is much closer to original devs idea of L4D2? Well I am fucking joyous they didn't made L4D2 cause it would have been full of microtransactions and pay 2 play features like Evolve was, or B4B will be since devs are fucking greedy. It's ironic you say that Valve piggybacked L4D's success while B4B's whole campaign is backed on that same claim, only reason why it's getting the hype it's getting.

Thematically different (lmao!!!) is not about core gameplay, it's about the "thematic elements." L4D is a co-op survival horror game, set in nighttime locations (sans The Passing, which was built during L4D2). It focused a lot more on tension and survival, while having mild comedic moments between characters. L4D2 threw out most horror elements (sans zombies) for a comedic action zombie shooter. They are nothing alike in terms of themes. I can't stand how goofy and satirical L4D2 is compared to the original, it completely ruined what was so innovative about the series (making a co-op experience that was, at times, actually kind of scary and tense). The gameplay is basically the same, they didn't really improve it, so much as just kind of added to what was already there with more weapons. The extra variations and maps are a cool point, and give the game way more replayability, but it's still super goofy and slapstick. Evolve was garbage, but has nothing to do with L4D outside of the developers (who I'd hope learned from their mistakes). As for B4B, I never claimed they weren't using L4D for their own publicity, but at least they are keeping to the themes they originally set. If you look at how Valve influenced the changes to the original L4D, and at what came from L4D2, you realize just how much creative control was taken away from the team and how much their intent was lost between games. B4B also didn't come out a year after L4D, unlike L4D2.

l4d2 was more of a ‘party’ game if anything and had more mass appeal and a very small cost in terms of fanbase back for blood looks like generic as fuck. no long-term appeal.

The only real reason people aren't excited about B4B is because L4D came out 13 years ago. We've all played it, or a variation of the same game. I wouldn't say it looks generic, but I also wouldn't say it looks like it's changing anything enough to compell me to play it over L4D2 (which I haven't touched in years), or more modern iterations of a similar formula like Deep Rock Galactic. Also I wouldn't say L4D2 had more "mass appeal" so much as it just got the most attention. People I knew who weren't gamers at the time were playing and talking about the original. It tapered off a lot with L4D2, though it had a larger base in the end (but it also got supported for literally a decade).

I just watched forsen play it for like 7 minutes and see no Real difference From l4d2 nor why theres hype around it. Maybe the bosses Are cool or whatever looks too samey to me.

It's hard to impress people nowadays as it has to be something completely completely different to make it fun/not samey.
2021-08-06 00:28
Seeing that the game was like 60 bucks and how l4d and l4d2 came out. I think i will wait till next year when back 4 blood 2 comes out and will buy the game like 4 years later when it’s around 10 bucks.

back for blood… looks generic as fuck with no promising features. game has p2w mechanics and the characters are soulless. probably worth $20. don’t kid yourself if you expect a game even a quarter as good as l4d2
