Well if that's the case, then you're probably better off not playing the game since I don't think there's a way to reduce or disable any of that. Even if there was, you are walking around with guns shooting things, so it really would be no different in terms of violence if you had the gore, blood, and language toned down or disabled.

And you know what, most video games of almost all genres are violent outright or sugar coated because you are always killing something in some way. If you played something all cutesy looking like Kirby, people seem to forget the volence that's actually still there. You're still walking/running around killing things. The visuals don't make it different really, but people don't see it that way.

Maybe you can find a mod in the workshop that removes the blood or something, I don't think there is though but it's worth checking.

There are some problems here:

1. You are clearly not over the age of 17 or older to be playing this game, but you can't buy it at that age. So your parents should not allow you to play this game. End of story.
2. You live in the wrong country, you should be in Austrialia, they banned the gore there.

If you really want to make this game less violent, set everything to low except for memory, and remove captions, and change language to something no one understands. Problem solved.

L4D1 is actually fine, it's only L4D2 that has been censored/had the gore toned down.

@OP: to lower the violence right click on the game once it's installed in the library and go to properties and then set launch options and place -lv into the launch options.

As far as the language, there isn't anything you can do except as someone mentioned above about changing the language and ensuring the subtitles aren't turned on.
