I have a complaint about L4D Mar. 17th, 2009 @ 04:06 PM Reply

The zombies in this game, or infected as some may call them, now heres my complaint.

What is their purpose?

Now zombies in old zombie movies and in many new ones, they have the goal to eat brains, or they want to eat your flesh. Basically zombies and infected can be said to want to eat the living in general.

Well the zombies in Left 4 Dead, no, they do not try and eat you, Heres what they do.

Left 4 Dead Zombies will rush at you in large groups if they are alerted or randomly just decide to come, and they will start swinging at you, punching you and kicking you as you melee them and shoot them away. Then if they down you, they will come up and start ripping you apart and clawing you, and they will start curb stomping you.

Now I ask WHY

They do not want to eat me, what are there purpose, what do they want? what can they possibly achieve in curb stomping and beating the shit out of me D:

They do not ever try and eat me, they just seem to hate me and wanna beat me, am I not tasty? are I not delicious or something?

Just a thought

Thanks Captain Obvious!

On-topic, I do agree that the zombies should try to eat you instead of just beating you down and stomping on you.

Those guys were infected by mutated rabies virus, so they are just little...angry, and can't recognize a friend from foe. (But they don't attack each other, for some reason.)

People have taken a new path to zombies nowadays. Even Capcom with the Resident Evil series. In Resident Evil 4 the zombies just wanted to kill you not eat you. As for Resident Evil 5, it could possibly be both, in other words whatever comes first.

Maybe they want to kill you before they eat you?

They're not cannibals. They're more like normal people but stupider and have quadruple anger issues.

The "Infected" (voiced by experimental musician Mike Patton) are the Survivors' foes in Left 4 Dead, and they appear to be partly inspired by the infected from several modern films, including 28 Days Later. An important distinction is that The Infected are not traditional undead zombies, but rather living humans infected with a rabies-like pathogen. In an interview with 1Up.com, Mike Booth commented on the concept of using a pathogen as an inspiration for the setting. The Common Infected encountered during the game are fast and agile, weak individually, but may be overwhelming in numbers. They display a special attraction to high-pitched alarm-type sounds, such as the beeping device attached to pipe bombs and car alarms. Common Infected will often chase down the source of these noises while ignoring lower-pitched, but much louder sounds such as gunfire. They occasionally attack en masse, referred to in-game as a "Horde".

These are obviously a more sophisticated zombie. They desire more than just a quick meal of some random flesh. They demand quality. When the are "beating" you, they are obviously attempting to tenderize your think and stringy muscle. This may indeed lead to your death but it is all the same to them. Upon your death they will cook you at a nice 450 degrees until the flaky crust is golden brown and then have you with a nice Chardonnay... The programmers had way to much time to think about the overall characteristics of these undead.

My friends and I had a discussion about this just yesterday. We couldn't come to any specific conclusion however I would tend to think because the infection is so widespread these "zombies" are the new humans that are trying to run a city wide gentleman's club. Since the pathogen has decreased their ability to talk with the survivors who are intruding upon their grounds they have to violently beat the shit out of them. Although the tank is the bouncer the rest also take up security affairs.

The witch cries because she doesn't have a kitchen to go to.

They like to make their flesh nice and tender before eating it therefore they will beat the living daylights out of you till you are all soft and chewy.

It's basically the same. Also they just want to beat you and to kill you before eating you. It's called tenderizing the meat.

Zombie: Crazy people that want to kill you and eat you because they are insane.

Infected: Crazy people that want to kill you and eat you because they are insane.

I said "basically" because the cause is different, infected = virus and zombie = magic or unknown cause.
