We hate zombies with the fiery, white-hot intensity of 1,000 seat belt buckles left too long in the August sun, so we're glad to see any footage of their foul breed being wholesale slaughtered, as in this new six-minute clip of Left 4 Dead shot at QuakeCon.

This looks to be a good simulation of what we believe it will be like when the zombies come for us and the people we love ... and they will. We imagine that, especially when the fat zombie is splattered all over the pavement, you will feel something primal awaken within you, an instinct pushing you to kill the approaching undead threat. Know that you are not alone, and give thanks that cruel evolution has not deadened what will one day be the most crucial of impulses.
