10 The Witch Left 4 Dead
There’s a moment when you first start playing
Left4Dead where you’ll see that ominous warning – don’t startle The Witch! – and wonder, ‘why the hell not?’ Curiosity might get the better of you. And, as she slashes you to broken bits, you realise it’s not a mistake you make twice. She’s the perfect manifestation of Left4
Dead’s dynamism. One moment you’re rushing backwards, firing wildly at zombies, unaware of your surroundings; the next, you hear that wailing music and the sound of sobbing, and you’re creeping through shadows like a child trying to check for Santa on Christmas Eve. But, y’know, with zombies.
