Fewer zombie games, please?

From PS3 Attitude: "Make no mistake, zombies are fun to kill. We've had years of pleasure dismembering these lumbering sacks of meat. They allow us to become murderous fiends without our consciences ever getting in the way, but should we feel guilty about all those heads we've blown off with a rusty sawn-off shotgun? Of course not; zombies don't have feelings – we're doing them a favour by freeing them from the undignified situations they've found themselves in.

But as fun as zombie bashing is, it's time to give the undead a break: they've been so over-used that they're starting to lose their impact..."

Why fewer Zombie games?

Why not more and then just take your pick of the best ones and leave the rest alone?
You don't have to get every single game of a type, if there are more racing, FPS, RPG, Zombie and every other type of game it just means the devs have to raise their game to compete with each other, thereby giving the consumer more choice, and hopefully better quality.

There is an abundance of FPS games out, but I personally just buy the odd few that appeal to me and leave the rest for other people who may prefer that type.

I personally think we have never had a truly great Zombie game, so the more we have the closer we will get to having a decent one at last.

So you endorse shovelware?

You're quite happy for people to spend their hard-earned cash on rubbish games, which then taints their entire experience of gaming if done just a few times? All the author is saying is that he wants developers to think about the subject material a little first and come up with a really great game that people really want. Is that so bad?

I love zombie games, but it is time people stopped cashing in on the genre with shovelware titles and took it seriously instead.

hey don't bash zombie games
look at what we got with Borderlands add-on. That great zombie island. by far the most fun i have had popping the walking dead. So as long as the zombie filled games are done right i see no reason to stop.
At the end of the day a little Sci-Fi fun never killed anyone.
