    Source: Destructoid - Why the Left 4 Dead survivors may secretly be infected

    A shocking twist indeed, by winning L4D you are actually dooming the human race? That's some deep shit.

    Interesting read.

    He may be looking a little too far into it, but it is still a probable hypothesis.

    I think this guy is onto something. It definitely seems credible. Wonder if anything will be shown of the original survivors in L4D2...

    If Left 4 Dead had a reasonable story, I'd be interested

    Too bad

    Every point the author made has a counter-point, to which they may or may not have included in the article.

    Death toll guy: attacked shortly before he got into the safe room. If you care enough, you can take a look at all the zombie movies out there and, if I'm not mistaken, you'll notice that the infection doesn't take the same amount of time to infect everyone.

    Helicopter pilot: he radios in about an "accident" he just had (if I recall correctly) just before he's coming to pick you up.

    All of these counter-points are directly from the game's story.

    I'm not sure I agree with his analysis, but it's a nice try and interesting all the same. Valve are known for thinking and planning ridiculously far ahead, so I wouldn't be surprised either way.

    Helicopter pilot:
    Yeah, that doesn't sound right. Check out his audio files, they're on YouTube.
    Still though, the L4D2 Demo is filled with comments such as "THEY ARE CARRIERS" and "The only good carrier is a dead carrier"
