New Orleans Overtaken By Zombies
The hurricane-battered city is the setting of zombie shooting game Left 4 Dead 2.
"The potential backlash didn't scare off developer Valve Software from choosing the deep South, including a beleaguered New Orleans, as the site for the zombie shooter game Left 4 Dead 2. The previous title in the franchise made no mention of a particular place, but Erik Johnson, producer for the game, says that choosing a specific location was crucial to understanding who the four survivors of a zombie outbreak actually are. 'We wanted there to be progression through a real place,' he says.
Although a prominent setting in other creative mediums, the South is frequently neglected as a location for games."
