Weird Sounds in the files
I recall finding HEV Suit and other HL2 sounds in the files before,

but this stuff is really interesting.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\left4dead2\sound\common

Listen to bugreporter_failed, rearright and right. Why are these even here?

The name of the 1st one you mentioned (bugreporter_failed) shouldn't need any explanation, just look at the name. rearright and right were most likely meant to be part of a speaker test in the options menu. Valve probably realized they didn't need to add it simply because Windows has that built-in already. No idea why they would leave unused sound files there, other than lazyness or rushing the game.

You will find all kinds of files left unused in Valve's games. Perhaps there is a reason for it, but the most likely excuse is Valve be lazy. In some cases this works to our advantage as we have sounds that otherwise wouldn't be there, and intrepid users can find something to make from them.

Have you heard bugreporter_failed though? "oh, fiddlesticks.. What now?" It doesn't sound very professional.

That is Dr. Kleiner from Half-Life 2, Valve set their random error messages to be that quote, it's the same with Portal 2 and some other games, not sure why they use it.

Oh. Seems a bit less random now, I've never played HL2 so I've never heard Kleiner talk..
