My 74th submission to DYOS X. [link]

If one treats the Left 4 Dead series as a sort-of interactive B-movie, the concept of the A.I. 'Director' is a little more understandable. Rather than relying on pre-scripted sequences, hordes and 'Special Infected' (such a witches) appear relative to the players' real-time locations, adding immense dynamic to an otherwise straightforward map progression.

The second panel is misappropriated from this Faulty Logic cartoon. CivGeneral's quip is from a comic prior, and this comic was the first thing that I thought of.
