With an all out assault on the video game display shelves, it seems the zombie trend is at an all time high. As this is being written, we are looking forward to at least two major titles this year specifically zombie themed. Just when you thought there could not possibly be another game with zombies in it, there they are- ever multiplying like a disease to infect every game out there. When you look at Half-life, Mortal Kombat, and Borderlands, would you know there is some variance of zombie in each game? Being a huge zombie buff myself, I will never tire of the all mighty headshots; however, developers have used them in some of the worse ways to date. So, let’s explore the history of zombies in video games, the relationship between the designers and zombies, and also why we have loved killing them for the past 28 years.
