Enough of the zombies already

SYCO takes a look at the current trend of zombies in gaming and how this needs to steadily be diluted from the industry. (Call of Duty: World at War, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

zombies are so hot right now. If not, throw a molotov cocktail on one and they soon will be.

More zombies please :) more walking dead!

They won't go away for several reasons:
1. It appeals to many young gamers because "zombies are cool".
2. It's very easy to make NPCs. AI is not an issue with hordes.
3. You can sell a brutal zombie game to teenagers as zombies are not real people (it doesn't count they were).
4. You don't really need to think about art style when you produce graphics with corpses.
5. Zombie games sell.

Imagine if they made a zombie movie but along the plot of Twilight. Some stupid chick falling in love with a zombie who want to eat her brains. Actually, no... if it becomes popular and becomes a trilogy, i would really hate people.

Although to call it a 'zombie' is stretching it.

Anyway on topic, DayZ and The Walking Dead were the type zombie games I was waiting for, and now we have them I'm pretty fed up with the standard zombie game. Until someone mixes the two: an open world realistic zombie survival game, but with realistic human characters and consequences to your decisions. I thought Dead Island would be that game, but we know how that turned out.

Why do some people feel the need to say "NO more zombie games" ????

Surely you can just pick one of the many other games out there and play that instead???

The fact that they are popular means that some people want them..... and they will be catered for as the games industry doesn't just cater for a select few!

Now I can fully understand people saying "NO more CRAP zombie games.... only release decent ones!" and that I could get on board with as lets be honest.... more often than not zombie games and zombie movies are crap and could easily be a lot better!

I personally like zombie movies and games, but I feel that the genre is severely lacking many quality offerings!

There are so many ways at which the Zombie genre can still be expanded. It is far from overdone.

Military shooters though....

They haven't done zombies right..that is the problem.

There is so much more that can be done!
ApolloTheBoss  +   1179d ago
You're right! I'm tired of zombies! All I want, are SHARKS with freakin laser beams attached to their heads! Is that so difficult?!
Hufandpuf  +   1179d ago
How can one be tired of zombies. They think they are "hip" and "against the grain" to suggest declining zombie games. If you look at it, Zombies are always going to be popular one year, then die down the next, then just become even more popular later. THERE'S NO STOPPING THE ZOMBIE HORDE!

I hate Zombies!

Overused idea.

If you don't like *insert game type here* games, then don't buy *insert game type here* games. Speak with your wallet and quit pretending your opinion is some great universal truth that the poor oppressed masses are afraid to speak out loud. I love shooting zombies myself, and the "perfect" zombie game hasn't been made yet.

there 'll never be enough of zombies :)
