Valve at E3 2013
Gaben comes out on stage.
Stands in silence for two minutes.
Crowd is wondering what's going on.
Lights go out. Not a single light besides the odd phone.
Monitors flicker to life. Only static.
Eerie glow cast on Gaben.
An old man's voice crackles out of the static.
"How long has it been? Tell me, are you alright? I'm sorry I'm so late. I hope I didn't worry you."
Crowd knows what's coming.
"Things have gotten worse. I don't know how long we can hide from them."
Bangs are heard in the distance.
More bangs come from the static.
A huge 3 appears amidst the static.
Screams can be heard in the static.
The word is cut off with static.
Lights come back up.
Crowd goes insane.
Gaben clears his throat.
Crowd becomes silent.
"Hello, friends. Here, at E3 Two-Zero-One-THREE..." Gaben says, stressing the threes.
"...We are incredibly proud to announce a game that's been in development for four years..."
Quiet "Huh?"s and "What?"s arise from the crowd.
"...The highly anticipated sequel to one of our best-selling games..."
Some in the crowd squeal.
"...We at Valve are proud to announce..."
Crowd stands in anticipation.
"..LEFT 4 DEAD 3!"
Mass suicides follow.
