Ok, so we played a little Left 4 Dead Survival last night. I have to say that it provides the most realistic zombie situation I've seen in a video game or movie. Here's how it basically plays out.

1) You make a plan to survive the zombie apocalypse with your friends.
2) You quickly arrange defenses in accordance with the aforementioned plan.
3) Zombies come at you screaming, jumping, and sprinting right into your face.
4) You initiate the plan, which works for about ten seconds.
5) Then the zombies chew RIGHT THROUGH A BRICK WALL!!! and laugh at your plan. Well, scream and moan at your plan.
6) You shout "OH FUCK OH FUCK OH FUCK!" and kiss goodbye to your plan. There's a new plan. That plan is "fire wildly while screaming and panicking."
7) The wall chewing zombies become brain chewing zombies and eat one of your friends.
8) This causes everyone to shout "OH FUCK OH FUCK OH FUCK!"
9) Someone says in a panicked voice "What's the plan! Where do we go!?! WHAT'S THE PLAN!?!?!"
10) Someone else says "This way!"
11) The group follows because he sounds like he knows what to do. However, there is a problem with his plan of "this way!" Zombies are that way.
12) More shouts of "OH FUCK OH FUCK OH FUCK!"
13) Zombies feast on everyone's brains.

This all takes around 2 to 3 minutes to play out. And frankly, if we woke up tomorrow morning and the entire world was zombified ala Dawn of the Dead, that's probably how things would play out for any of the survivors.

I haven't played it yet due to my 360 RoDing but that sounds about right. I mean, that wasn't much different than the reaction when I first played that game.
