Guest Post: The Dystopian Generation – Why We Love Zombie Games

Twinfinite writes:"There are two things that have we’ve been seeing a lot of during the past few years; dystopian-themed video games and talk about Millennials. I don’t think I know a single gamer who hasn’t played something involving zombies or a young person who hasn’t read an obnoxious article about how Millennials are terrible narcissistic slackers.

What is the deal with the zombie trend? We had a vampire kick for a while, and that made sense because vampires can be made sexy (note that I said they can be, this is not some admission that I think Edward is hot), but zombies? The zombie fad has stuck around for a long time now, and you can’t really make zombies attractive, despite the attempts of that one weird movie." (Dishonored, Fallout, Industry)
