Are Zombie Games Going Extinct?

Cheat Code Central's Josh Engen writes: "No one is more afraid of zombies than I am, but the more zombie-centric games, movies, and television shows that are released, the less afraid I become. Psychologists call it over-exposure, but I call it zombie boredom." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, Industry, PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Wii U, Xbox 360)

Yeah the fact that the walking dead game is so popular obviously proves otherwise.

"Extinct"...
wouldnt that be better served for dinosaur games?
NeXXXuS  +   586d ago
@darth - We need another Turok or Dino Crisis game.

Just like how gamers got tired of killing Nazis and aliens all the time, they are getting tired of killing zombies all the time.
Silly Mammo  +   586d ago
But if they are Nazi Zombies...count me in!
Godmars290  +   586d ago
Don't forget alien Nazi zombies!

Damn Alien Nazi Zombies - DONE TOOK OUR JOBS!

Not really, we have Dayz(the game), State Of Decay, WarZ, Walking Dead Season 2, and Last Of Us(basically the infected are zombies) so pretty much we got a decent amount of Zombie Games, i'm just waiting for a Zombie Game to come out this gen where you can actually play as a Zombies kinda like Stubbs the Zombie(should have had a sequel).
LUCKYXS7LEVEN  +   586d ago
you REALLY want to add WarZ in there? the game is shit on sticks
WeskerChildReborned  +   586d ago
Yea if you seen any of my comments on WarZ related news, i'm disapointed with the developer, even though the devs of WarZ have no respect with their consumers, the game still is a zombie game. hopefully not much people buy it to show them that they should appreciate their consumers more.
Dazel  +   586d ago
Its just a con job of a game, even got kicked off of Steam today.

Now DayZ is far better and thats still a mod. Zombie games dead, pfft!
Angrymorgan  +   586d ago
Farcry3 needs zombie mode :-)
Pushagree  +   586d ago
Let's hope so. That idea has been milked enough.

if done right zombie games have their place in gaming, but a lot of them just throw in zombies on screen and no story or purpose what so ever.

yakuza dead souls is a great zombie game wuth a single player story that makes sense and has some emotion to it.

walking dead is also an excellent game

than there are entries like dead rising which are quick cash ins and not more.

a real survivor zombie game, where you are not the strong super hero. It starts out normal than all goes to hell so you have to survive or your own or you could help others so they can join the fight. getting supplies from stores,going to gun stores to find ammo,going to find medical supplies in hospitals. everything is lost survive and figure a way out.

be selfish and survive on your own and killing others or help others and build a gated community away from zombies, but you have to go out and find supplies and other thinsg needed to survive.

hopefully last of us will fill my zombie need

I remember Dead rising being one of the first next-gen games that received a lot of advertising. They made it to the zombie race much before most of the cash-ins today

i dont know but i really dont care because unless its like the walking dead game most zombie games only involve shooting hows about we get a game where we are a zombie, or better yet lets get a vampire game ala legacy of kain or bloodrayne .
Dazel  +   586d ago
Game where we are the zombie, hmmmmmm L4D/2 ring any bells?
prototypeknuckles  +   586d ago
isnt that in multiplayer mode only, im talking about a game where we can run around as a zombie in a single player mode kind of like stubbs the zombie.
Valenka  +   586d ago
I hope so.
faizanali  +   586d ago
I would love if zombie games quit being made, The whole COD franchise now rely on the Fact that people buy it because of the "ZOMBIES!" Well idgaf about COD or Zombies, Open World Genre FTW!
WeskerChildReborned  +   585d ago
Lol no they don't, it's MP cause more people are playing that then zombies.
faizanali  +   581d ago
Even the MP is now getting repetitive, Shame.
Flipgeneral  +   586d ago
Should make the header, "shitty zombie games are going extinct"

I would like a good zombie game please
