    1. Why do you need Left 4 Dead 3 ? To “follow” the story from the 2 ?
      You want to play Left 4 Dead, play the second, it’s still amazing.

      Having L4D3 or HL3 in 2024, we ALL know that so many will hate it because it’s not perfect in every aspect.
      It’s not 2012 anymore, we used to like a game because it’s fun. Now gamers are cancer and just wanted perfection even if perfection don’t exists. Pleasing gamers is just Sisyphean.

  1. “6 vs 6 third-person hero shooter. The game will feature a large map with four lanes to attack that have tower defense mechanics as well as various items and abilities to utilize”

    So it’s DOTA, basically.
    Not sure why they would need to make an entire new game for that.
