Interactive Left 4 Dead Movie Tests Zombie Apocalypse Readiness


Can playing videogames help you survive in a world of zombies? Well, it depends on which games you play.

Zombie apocalypses are all the rage right now, and chances are you've spared a thought or two for what you might do if the dead really did start roaming the Earth.

But as useful as it is to have a plan, eventually you'll find yourself in a situation where you have to make a snap decision based on limited information, when all your contingencies and preparations are for naught.

Fortunately, a new interactive video based on Valve's Left 4 Dead games gives you the chance to practice, without actually having to get eaten by zombies if you mess up. Created by the folks at TheGameStation [http://www.youtube.com/TheGameStation], the video features four gamers on the run from the undead. As often happens in these situations, they wind up trapped in a building with a ravening pack of zombies outside, ready to feast on their tasty brains.

At that moment, it is up to the viewer to decide whose gaming-inspired plan the group should follow in their bid for continued existence. It's not a super-serious video - far from it, in fact - and the plans are more funny then they are practical, but it's really well done and it's a great way to spend a few minutes laughing at zombies.

Well it has Total Biscuit so I'll probably end up watching all of it :3

I love his Let's Play Magicka with the Yogscast.

Looks pretty good so far :D

Okay, that was fun, maybe because I'm a big fan of L4D. All of the videos were nicely done.
But what amazed me was that i actually picked the right person to think the strategy. I guess the hat guided me.

But still, lucky me. i guess I'll be surviving the Z-Apocalypse after all!

Fun, but..

NEEEVEEER SHOOT A METAL DOOR LOCK WITH A GUN!

The shrapnel will kill you slowly and painfully. Zombies are faster. Painful as well, but faster.

A nice bit of entertainment. For anyone who wants another, and in my opinion, better version of this sort of thing, check out the one that Hell Pizza did to promote themselves, pretty fun.

Same here. Those guys are just awesome commentators.

OT; You just had to mention Husky and/or TB to grab my fullest attention. Wish you could see TB's situation though.

My favorite part was the car at 1:53. It was pretty chill.

Not bad- I lost, though. Cursed, as most were, I'm sure, to side with the cute one.

WHAATTTT??!?!! The CoD guy? No way!!! The Starcraft guy had a better chance. It was probably the most practical.
