"The weekend before Dead Island came out, I decided to get myself ready for the zombie infested title by playing a little Left 4 Dead 2. I made the horrible mistake of thinking Dead Island would be similar to the Valve zombie thriller, so let me inform all of you with this important fact: Dead Island is nothing like the Left 4 Dead series. As a matter of fact, it has more in common with Bethesda’s Fallout 3 and Gearbox’s Borderlands than it does with the aforementioned Valve series. The question here is will Dead Island continue to infect the masses or will it just be a case of hypochondria?"
