Left 4 Dead 3 Wanted Content
A few months ago I came across a leak about VALVe working on Left 4 Dead 3. And I didn't think of much at the time, though, when I started playing Left 4 Dead 2 again, I started to think about it. Anyways, I just wanted to ask anyone who reads this: requests for content in Left 4 Dead 3. Be creative, and remember, I could contact Gaben about this due to him leaving his e-mail on Portal 2. And such.

1) Client-side modding only. I firmly believe a hats/weapon customization system would only ruin the game as it stands. I think the same for leveling and perks.

2) Atmosphere. Left 4 Dead had it, L4D2 doesn't. It suffers for it.

3) More firearms, if proper niches can be found for them. Or at least the ability to add them to custom campaigns.

4) Versus matchmaking and an extended server choosing system.

5) ADS as a cosmetic feature. Because it feels good.

Agreed. Maybe we could find out how the zombie apocalypse happened in hidden writings or something?

The characters man dont make them shaved and happy and stuff make wear stuff like the l4d1 beta models and give it that horrific atmosphere cause l4d2 reminds me of a little kid game

1. Keep the system they have for downloading mods through Steam workshop, as they do with L4D2.

2. I like the dark atmosphere of L4D, L4D2 was pretty much sunny throughout each campaign (There are exceptions of course). I find it more exciting to have it night, with the moon out.

3. Make sure the characters have some depth to them, I felt more of a connection to the L4D survivors, they just seemed more "real." That being said the L4D2 survivors are likeable, but L4D characters take the cake.

4. As Those Dirty Blues said, more weapons/guns as long as they can actually fit in. Also get rid of the P220 & Glock, I don't like either model that much, and my inner OCD drives me crazy because they are mismatched (Yes I use a mod to solve this).

5. Have more official campaigns, I just like being able to play the official campaigns over add-ons because they work on all servers, and don't glitch up. Unfortunately, they get boring after a while, so more choices would be great. That being said we do have a decent selection.

6. Carry over L4D & L4D2 campaigns. What I mean is do what was done in L4D2, they ported the L4D campaigns into L4D2, so that you can play them.

7. New throwables would be neat too, though I don't know what exactly to add. The only thing that comes to mind is grenades, but there's other things out there of course.

8. It would be great to have dual pistols, or a magnum as a side arm, and THEN have a separate melee, instead of only have one slot that is either melee or a side-arm. However, it would of course need to be balanced in some way. In part I say this because I like pistols, but the reality is, melees are supreme in most ways to them in L4D2. Another thing to be noted is in a real apocalypse, it would be likely that someone would carry those 3 types of weapons: Primary, side-arm, and melee for improved survival chances.

9. A nerf on SOME of the special infected. The Jockey and Charger are extremely annoying. It seems like they both have way more health than they should (Mainly Chargers), Chargers are practically mini-tanks.

10. A new "boss"-like infected. I don't want the tank replaced AT ALL, I just think it would be fun to have something new to have a "boss battle" with.

I take issue with this idea because it's partially responsible for the decline of Left 4 Dead. Nearly anyone who hasn't played Left 4 Dead now declares it obsolete because some version of the campaigns are in Left 4 Dead 2. (I still want to murder whoever made the metal detector panic event mandatory.)
Left 4 Dead 2 still has a thriving aftermarket community, and I fully expect it to continue even after L4D3 comes out, so long as Valve doesn't pull another game-killing stunt like they did to L4D (which quite frankly, they did a less than stellar job of). Addon ports would be fine by me, because then I could use them at my leisure. It might be interesting to see those campaings through a new game engine.

(Yeah, I'm a bit of a purist, but I feel Left 4 Dead is a game worthy of being purist about.)

I understand completely. I wrote a detailed reply to this, but the quoting didn't work properly, and for whatever reason when I copied my answer it seems to have not actually copied it. Because when I tried to paste it back in this reply, it didn't work. In short, I understand and agree with you, but the reality is L4D2's community will decline with the release of a new game. I agree that adding a port of these games to it will further that decline, but in all actuality, somebody will port it to the new game, whether by Valve or not.

I'd say I'd request
1. More Guns, if possible (y'know, the "Number 4 Request of Gideon The Judge)
2. L4D2's Vpks to be ported over to L4D3. (To simplify the transfer of favourite add-on survivors, infected, weapons, maps, etc)Same goes for Every Map from L4D1 & L4D2!
3. A new type of boss battle, like fighting Killing Floor's "The Patriarch", alongside existing Tank and Witch fights!
4. Survivors able to carry a Primary Weapon, Sidearm, Melee Weapon, Grenade, Backpack item (Healthkit, defib, special ammo, etc.), pills/adrenaline, all At The Same Time.
What's your opinion on the matter?

My opinion? Basically, I agree with you. And yes there is a shortage of weapons in Left 4 Dead. Maybe add optional ADS? Not saying the game needs it, there just are moments when they would come in handy.

Aiming Down Sights? Wouldn't Quick-Time-Events be more useful?(I was thinking "Special Infected trying to get the jump on you, no pals around to shunt him off!")

Optional F-ing ADS, what's wrong with that? It would certainley get some angry COD fans off L4D's aiming back!

Funny how people used to boycott Left 4 Dead 2 for releasing sequel too fast, and now we don't have sequel for 4 years... ♥♥♥♥♥ing have it's price...
dude the ability to combine weapons like a rifle and flamethrower (like how ripley did in aliens) would be legit. also a flamethrower in general. maybe zombies that look more ripped up and eaten. also sprinting

More Guns, a little less special infected. because with the jockey and charger added to the lot. it got kind of annoying and very hard to complete some of the finales, like the bridge finale on The Parish even on normal mode. I agree on the melee slot and a side arm slot, its stupid not to have a melee weapon along with your side arm. I can understand the challenge and balance but it kind of leans on one weapon that everyone uses and thats the melee.

also there should be a futuristic weapon set too like in BF2142. That would be awesome!!
