Few games get more love at G4 than Left 4 Dead. Some were concerned about Valve's decision to move ahead with Left 4 Dead 2 so quickly, while the G4 staff simply said: when can we play it? X-Play's Abbie Heppe is one of the biggest fangirls for Left 4 Dead, so it was natural she meet up with Left 4 Dead 2 writer Chet Faliszek at Penny Arcade Expo.
Abbie told Faliszek that she's noticed an unusually large number of female gamers getting into Left 4 Dead, a hardcore shooter. She asked Faliszek why that is:
"You don't just make a game for women because you're targeting some weird thing. We made a social game and we see people hooking up with their friends, we see people helping each other, we see complete strangers coming together to complete a mission. Really, it's this really easy way to play with your friends, to hook up with your friends in college, people who maybe moved away from you. We have all these e-mails of people writing in and talking about that."
