Left4Dead. I love it too, but I just can't sit there forever like they can. I guess I'm old.
While the survivors of that particular zombie apocalypse are vastly outnumbered, they have some things NONE of us would have if we were ever faced with the same scenario. Guns. Lots and lots and LOTS of guns. AND the ammo to go in them!
Every so often you can find piles of ammo and fully loaded weapons (ranging from handgun to assault rifle and the occasional grenade launcher) just lying around. Usually they're accompanied by untouched first aid kits, and ready-to-use explosives. Convenient, right?
I suppose for video games it pretty much has to be that way, but what about us in the real world? What would YOU use? Do you have anything in your home/office/dorm/apartment that could be used as a weapon? A lot of people own handguns, but not everyone. What then? Power tools? A rake? I want to know!
But, here's the catch... make it something you can actually get your hands on. Keep it real. Just crying out "flamethrower" is cool, but could you get it realistically? Maybe you could....are you, or a family member in the reserves with access to high powered weaponry? Awesome. Are you in an apartment with not even a hammer? Find something around you! Pretend your door will be broken down any moment! What can you use to defend yourself?
And while you're thinking about it, why not take the first step of zombie protection and purchase your own B'hold Designs Ultimate Camouflage....better than a flame thrower, and cheaper, too!
Sound off, zombie fans!
Aim high. Run fast. Be creative.
