The Greatest Game I Never Play…
Survive the Parish campaign.
Gamerscore = 20 Acquired 21/3/2010
This achievement came way too long after the fact. I remember prior to Left 4 Dead 2’s release that I had proclaimed in my head that this was the game I was most excited to play over the Christmas season. As it turned out games like Forza Motorsport 3, Borderlands, and Modern Warfare 2 took hold of me in a serious way, leaving Left 4 Dead 2 left behind.
In the months between its release and now I have hipped away at it with a few play sessions, some being more successful than others, but until this past week I had never even seen the Parish campaign. So I gathered up my brother and decided that enough was enough and I was going to see this level through.
And I did see the game through, but my adventure is not over. It was recently announced that this game along with the original Left 4 Dead will be expanded and storylines intertwined as The Passing downloadable chapters are added to the L4D epic. The Passing will arrive before Summer and will carry with it a serious shifting of gears as one of the survivors…will not survive!
I look forward to see how The Passing handles the story integration as well as the death of a survivor. For me, this really meshes the zombie movie with the zombie video game. If you have ever seen a zombie flick you know one thing…that Nobody Survives Forever!
