But yeah, as passé as it is, I played a string of zombie games in Sept. 2013. It was good fun--got some thoughts to share. I think I'll stick with just one of those games for this post.
So back in my first years of college, I was a huge fan of Valve's Left 4 Dead game, and its sequel. Playing those games introduced me to a group of buddies I still hang with now and then, and still rep on my steam handle. But the L4D series are really well made games. That's some primo co-op FPS gameplay right there. As usual for a Valve game, it was populated with fantastic characters with excellent dialogue. So good--in fact, let me introduce you to the characters from each game's opening cinematic scene.
Left 4 Dead
Bill - Old man. 'Nam vet. Father figure.
Francis - Biker dude. Tough guy. Hates everything.
Louis - Black guy. White-collar. Optimist.
Zoey - Chick. Movie-buff. Youngest one.
