Planet Xbox 360 writes: "A friend of mine asked me, "What is Left 4 Dead?" My initial response was: "it is a first person shooter where you run from safe house to safe house, decimating zombies and their cohorts". I was taken aback at how simple I explained it. I realized Left 4 Dead is an undead example that video games are entertainment. They don't have to explain the mysteries of a fictional world so we have better insight into ours. Instead it relies on solid controls, exceptional multiplayer, intense encounters with the dead kind, and a large history of zombie and horror flicks to deliver a small package brimming with fun. Left 4 Dead is cut into four movies with five scenes. Each scene players control four characters modeling horror movie stereotypes."
