The "zombie genocidest" (kill 53,595 zombies) achievement is a direct nod to the dead rising achievement "zombie genocider" which required that you kill 53,594 zombies. I thought that was a pretty cool nod to a great game, albeit this left 4 dead achievement will be a lot easier and more enjoyable to unlock rather than sitting in the mall tunnels repeatedly driving over swarms of shuffling shamblies.

I literally lol'd.

@M85A - i don't think it's about oneupmanship. I think it's just a great joke. Like "strong, stronger, strongest" xD

Same here. I was listening to a podcast earlier today in which a valve employee was being interviewed, and he mentioned it. I had to see it for myself though.

Yeah he was saying the next bigish game out will have an achievement like this but 100,001, to copy Gears 2

Classic Capcom. Even though the genocider achievement took awhile the sounds and sights of the zombies smacking the trucks and the inmates jeep were funny.

I like the nods to other game's achievements, especially when games are related in theme/genre.

I'll gladly kill that many zombies and many many more.

I lol'd as well. I've always enjoyed Valve's sense of humor. And yeah it may very well be them taking a jab at the oneupmanship of other companies.

As a side note, a buddy of mine is of the opinion that this game is somehow related to dead rising. I'm not convinced, but he seems to think that this takes place after the events of DR (for the benefit of those who havent finished the story, I'll leave it there). Anyone here heard anything like this?

There both great games if you ask me. I got the Dead Rising Zombie Genocider achievement and I plan to get Left 4 Dead's, too.

Not in the slightest. It's made by a completely different company. The only relation the two games have is killing zombies (and too be fair Left 4 Dead always calls them Infected rather than zombies, probably to placate purists who whine about having "running zombies") and that one achievement name.

Well zombies are re-animated corpses, thus the brain would be damaged and would limit zombies to being the same or slower as the corpse was. Infected means it is some disease that can have whatever affect. Left 4 Dead is no way related to Dead Rising, and the Dead Rising 2 game will be what happens after Willamette. However, this game does feel like Dead Rising if it had a more serious face on.
