It had to happen. Somebody - in this case Ben Borthwick - has recreated Left 4 Dead in The Sims 3. Complete with a household narrative.

I'll spare you the story (you can read up on that yourself if you're interested), and instead just focus on what he's done to the characters. Well, what The Sims 3 character creation suite has done to them. Ben's done the best he could.

Zoey looks fine, and Louis is one sharp guy having finally gotten a chance to both wash and tuck in his shirt. But Bill? Bill looks like a Scout leader with predatory tendencies. And Francis? Oh, what have you done, Maxis, to my beloved Francis? I liked him when the girly name was ironic.
