Games with a good southern bayou feel?

Like the atmosphere in Left 4 Dead 2 or House of the Dead Overkill. Something like that.

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, if you like historical bayou
It does not matter where we go. It is not the destination that is the journey.

I think Hitman: Blood Money had a mission where you could shoot up a redneck wedding on the bayou.
I am not economically viable.

It doesn't sound like you're looking for any old-school adventure games, but the Gabriel Knight series is set in New Orleans, and provides some of the best southern bayou atmosphere I've ever played. It has all the heavy accents, Voodoo shops, and mosquito buzzin' you could want. Whenever I play Gabriel Knight, I can practically feel the swampy humidity in the air.

Speaking of Voodoo: it's not set in the bayou, but Risen 2 is about a pirate who can use Voodoo magic. It's not necessarily a good game, but if you like old Haitian Voodoo, that's an option I guess.
. . . methodical, exacting, and worst of all, patient.

Parts of Far Cry 2. There are some swampy/jungle areas with propeller boats and muddy water.

Point Lookout in Fallout 3 takes place in a swamp.
