Next-Gen Needs To Get Rid Of Generic Zombie Games

OnlySP: One of the most common videogame tropes next to square-jaw, gravelly voiced marines and legendary space heroes is the re-animated corpse that is the “zombie”. Zombies and their variations have been featured in so many current-gen classics, from the iconic first-person shooter series Call of Duty to the grim and emotional The Walking Dead. Yet has the golden age of zombies come and gone? Should we abandon the “zombie” genre for next-gen or allow it to shuffle on for the next console era? Here’s what I think. (Dead Rising 3, Dying Light, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

I wish treyarch would make dead rush that was to come out on ps2 and Xbox but it was cancelled. It had huge potential.

I would rather typical period games with the same fantasy beasts and boring open world fetch quests died also get to the chopper levels.

That's right I'm gonna buy ps4, them I will wait for games like Days, Left for dead and something new...we hope.

I think a more important issue would be how many people use the word generic, get a more extensive vocabulary please

You'll have to take my zombies from my cold dead hands...

As long as a new game is fun it doesn't matter if it's been done before. "dying light" looks cool and it's pre-alpha.

Just give me my PS4 and games of all kinds!

I agree to a point, series like resident evil really need to take there time on making a new game. I would much rather play hd remakes of RE 1 and 2 than to play their newer titles. We are desperately in need of originality and companies willing to take a risk with new IP's.
