Carl B. of RoboAwesome.com writes, "I'm not sure exactly when zombies became so incredibly popular in film and video games. I feel like it almost happened overnight; we've had pop culture zombies for a long time, but they didn't burst out in popularity until recently. Zombies are seen everywhere in pop culture at this point, from television shows like The Walking Dead to Treyarch's multiplayer zombies in Call of Duty. In games, zombies have become more about action and mindless bloodshed than about survival horror (with the recent exception of DayZ). Even a classic survival horror series like Resident Evil has become more action oriented in its recent releases."
