News: The only good zombie is a dead zombie.
Valve has posted some great statistics detailing the zombie-killing habits of the Left 4 Dead 2 community on the game's official website.
Prepare to be blown away (with a headshot, of course)...
In the first two months of Left 4 Dead 2's release, 28,981,249,043 zombies have been shot, bludgeoned, chainsawed and killed ? or, for our younger readers, taken to a farm where they can frolic and shuffle around forever.
You read that correctly: 28 BILLION. To put that number in perspective:
The entire population of the planet has been zombified and killed 4.26 times.
With the average height of a zombie being 6 feet, if you stacked them end to end they would circle the globe 1,322 times.
Sometimes, it's really easy to love Valve. Other times, like the continued delay of Half-Life 2: Episode Three, not so much. But this time, there's nothing but love Valve. That post was pure brilliance.
