So Left 4 Dead is out and I’ve been playing the junk out of it. What I can’t deal with about the game (in a good way) is just how epic everything is when you’re playing with a group of friends, battling zombies in campaign or becoming them in versus mode. I’ve played the game for hours already with no signs of letting up anytime soon.
As you know, if you’ve played the game, the thing that’s just awesome is that each playthrough is different, resulting in wildly imaginative tales after your harrowing escapes. I thought it would be a good time to recount some of ours.
I think one of my favorite stories is the time when all of us were surviving on the hospital roof, throwing off waves of zombies, smiting them with our mighty boomsticks.
Unfortunately, just my brother and I made it out of the melee in time for the helicopter to arrive, at which point we hobbled towards the helipad. Just as we did, zombies spilled out of every corner of the rooftop and we shotgunned our way to freedom. Or so we thought. Just as I got to the edge of the helipad, a tongue shoots out and I get pulled by a smoker all the way off the landing, and to my death. My brother was screaming for me, but it never saved me.
So- what’s your favorite Left 4 Dead moment so far? Feel free to share!
