Valve released a crippling statistic today. And it wasn’t how many Twinkies the entire staff eats during the development cycle of one of their games.
The number is a Left 4 Dead 2 zombie killcount, and it numbers in the billions. 28,981,249,043 to be exact.
That’s how many foaming-at-the-mouth undead gamers have slain since the game released late last year. Pretty impressive.
To put that mammoth figure in perspective though, consider these points of inspection from Valve.
- The entire population of the planet has been zombified and killed 4.26 times.
- With the average height of a zombie being 6 feet, if you stacked them end to end they would circle the globe 1,322 times.
- If you placed 28,981,249,043 rulers end to end, they would reach 28,981,249,043 feet in the sky.
Not to worry though because Valve has promised to make more.
