In the world of multiplayer cyber gaming, Left 4 Dead 2 has been trending wildly among the young and young-at-heart. The thrill of working together in groups to try to survive a zombie apocalypse as you trudge through a desolate cityscape (and we’re not even talking about the zombie hordes yet!) has many youth staying up all hours to play.
During the recent March holidays, five different cell groups in CHC from Edmund Tay and Dorcus Xu’s zones came together and organized a Left 4 Dead 2 tournament for church members and their friends at cyber gaming center, Game Haven. Up for grabs was a cash prize of S$120.
Despite a very competitive environment, the team spirit and sportsmanship displayed by every player, including those who did not win, was refreshing. Many were especially impressed by the high standard demonstrated by the top players. While the youth were there to win, along the way they also made new friends after mingling with others who shared the same passion for gaming.
Han Long, a secondary school student, enjoyed the event immensely and was happy to bag a prize. “Even though our team won the third prize, we feel happy because we were the youngest team to compete and winning was an accomplishment to us,” he said.
