Why Do Gamers Love Zombies?

As a part of GamrMag's Zombie Week, Christian Orkibi takes a look into the psychology of gamers when it comes to zombie games.

"In recent generations, with the launch of Left 4 Dead, The Walking Dead, Dead Rising, Resident Evil and arguably The Last of Us, zombies have taken over almost every gaming platform on the market. Why do we, as gamers, enjoy the experience of a zombie apocalypse? Is it the tension, teamwork and constant sense of impending death? Or are we just a massive bunch of raving psychopaths who enjoy the senseless gore of combining a ridiculously large chainsaw with a brainless corpse?" (Culture, Dead Rising, Dead Space, Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil, The Last Of Us)
